    registration form for a schools website

    Asked by margitvandam on October 02, 2012 at 03:37 AM

    I want to create a registration form for a schools website. It would be for parents who wish to enrol their children at the school. They would need to be able to 'register' and then have the ability to return to their 'account' the following year to update their information.

    Is it possible to create this in jotform?

    Unfortunately, JotForm does not have the feature to have forms run as a login facility. 

    Thank you for using Jotform. Let us know if there's anything else that you require assistance with.

    As an alternative to having a login facility, it's possible to include an edit link in a form's auto responder. For details, please see both How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date and How to Make a Clickable Edit Link.

    Even though each of the form's records would only contain the latest updated submission, you would be automatically notified (via email) of each update. So, you would still have a record of each change.

    I suspect this method is what guest_22752440875053 wants to discuss with you.

    Should you have further questions about this, we'd be happy to assist you.
