    For my purposes, users may want to fill out the form and submit... but then go back and just change a few items on the form. 

    Is there a way to have jot form save the old version AND create a new version of the submission.   (And this would create a new row in the integrated Google Sheet as well as the FieldBook Zap I have created) 

    IE - I am trying to save users from having to completely retype a new submission when some fields/answers are the same or almost the same. 


    Thank you for your assistance!

    When submission edits are made the previous submission is overwritten, there is not currently a way to make this create a new submission instead.

    There is a workaround described in the following thread that would allow for creating a link to the form with the users data pre-filled:

    But there is not currently a way to do so using submission edits.
