Is there a way to find out if a form submission has been edited and or to view previously edited version of a submission?

    I am using jot form for a survey and the data would be invalid if all users who have access to form submissions are able to edit form submissions without anyone knowing anything has happened. Is there a way to monitor form submission edits?

    The only way to know is through the EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS you receive. The SUBJECT LINE will bear the word "EDIT:" indicating that the submission has been edited. However, this will only happen if you enabled the SEND ON EDIT option for your email notifications.

    I'd like to clarify this part "data would be invalid if all users who have access to form submissions are able to edit". Your users/customers don't have access to edit their submission data unless you allow them to.

    The only way for them to edit their own submission is if you included the EDIT LINK on the AUTORESPONDER emails they receive.

    If your goal is to prevent them from editing their submissions, I recommend you remove the edit link from your autoresponder (if you have one).

    In case you need more help, please let us know the FORM URL so we can check how your form is currently setup.
