    When a submission is edited, how can I know what was changed

    Asked by mtlscouts_committee on December 12, 2012 at 01:58 AM

    When a person submits a form, I receive the notification email.  When they use the edit link to make a change, I get another email marked with EDIT in the subject.  This is great.  However, without looking at the 2 notification emails side-by-side, and checking each response, is there some way I can know what was changed?

    To my knowledge, no. However, I'll leave this thread marked as unanswered in case my colleagues know of a way.

    Thanks for asking.

    I was going to suggest using Gmail as your recipient email so that you can have the original submission and submission edit notifications on the same conversation (or thread) for easier comparison, but it appears that you are already using Gmail.

    Just like Wayne (abajan), I can't think of any easier way to do this. I can imagine a solution with custom PHP scripting, but I doubt you'd want to dabble on that :)

    Likewise, I'll keep this thread marked as unanswered. Hopefully our other colleagues can chime in and give their two cents.
