    Hi;

    thank you for your nice service.

    I am a student and I am creating a form as my questioner. I don't want the responder to go back and change their answer.

    would you please help me create this kind of forms?

    regards

    MH.Ebrz

    Hi MH.Ebrz - To clarify, no one can edit your form except you as the account owner (or if you shared your form with a sub-account).

    If you're trying to prevent your respondents from editing what they enter on the form, right off the bat, then it may not be good UI/UX-wise (user interface / user experience). As a quick example, what if I made a mistake on a previous field? Does it mean I won't be able to go back and make changes to it? This should always be an option for users before they submit the form.

    Perhaps what you're hoping to do is prevent your users from editing their submission? If so, your respondents can not edit their submission unless you allow them to. Seeing that this form https://www.jotform.com/72933009674562 doesn't have any Autoresponders, this would mean your users won't be able to edit their submission.
