    In addition to our applicants filling out a form, we require them to ask for a recommendation letter from someone they know.

    1. Is there a way for an applicant to send a link to the person they are asking to write the recommendation letter?  We are looking for something that will allow a third party to upload a document to an existing application (ie: recommendation letter upload by reference person, not applicant).

    2. Is there a way for the applicant to verify the recommendation letter was submitted?


    Thanks in advance,

    You may allow others to edit the submission in order to add the needed information, please check this guide that will help you sending the edit link to someone else:  https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date 

    Now, I see that you would basically need something like an approval workflow where the users can send the submission to someone else, then he/she can edit the submission attaching the needed file and the submission is sent back to the submitter in order to review it. 

    Here's a guide that will give you an idea about how this can be done: https://www.jotform.com/help/432-A-General-Approach-on-Building-an-Approval-Process-Workflow 

    Please take a look and let us know if you have questions. 

    Thanks.
