    We use Jotform to let performing artist apply to our summer performance series. We are very excited to use the Edit Submission feature to allow the artist to update their submission from last year. We use GoogleDocs and GoogleSheets  to keep track of our submissions. Is there a way to capture the date of a submission edit. We are having new responder emails sent on edit but I cannot find a way to capture the edit date in the jotform submission itself.
