    Feature request: Ability to Edit a submission and Save It rather than submit

    Asked by markashton on February 01, 2013 at 03:24 PM

    Every time one edits a submission ... one has to submit it again ... adding to the over total of submissions.

    This is penalising people for getting their work in order.

    Can I suggest a save button that will just save any amends one makes as opposed to the stellar.... submit again and kick off all the notifications and penalise you for doing so my adding to your monthly submission count.

    Fair?

    Would be nice to have the option to make a simple amend

    Thanks, Regards Mark

    Hi Mark, thank you for the feedback and suggestion about this. It is understandable as to what you mean by this so I will go ahead and forward your request to our Developers. If they have anything to say about it or if they go ahead and decide to implement it at some point later down the road they will update the thread here and also in our blogs possibly. Also, please keep in mind that they are busy with higher priority issues so until then we do appreciate your patience and thanks again for the idea.

    Hi I need to edit submissions ... just saving the data ... this feature is what is needed ... I don't want to edit a submission and fire off emails and create extra submissions ... the administrator of a jotform account should have the ability to be able to make changes and save data.

    Is this reasonable? thanks

    Mark

    Hey Mark and thanks for checking in. I did open up a ticket for your request which I can see is still open status and already assigned to a developer so I believe that they are looking into this request as a possible feature. I will go ahead and pass on your further details and thank you for the clarification. We will let you know what's going on with this request here as soon as can and thank you for your patience.

    Hi there,

    Can you advise me as to whether this can be implemented. 

    I do have the need to edit submissions without creating extra submissions in the count.

    Sometimes there is some bad spelling that needs to be edited.

    This can't be done without penalising oneself with an extra submission to the total.

    Thanks

    Regards mark

    I think that some time ago users requested to remove 'extra submissions' for edits, so it is already working like this. I have just checked, and can confirm that we do not increase the submissions value upon edits.

    Also, we do not send the Autoresponders to form users, but we send the Email Notifications  with 'Edit' in subject to form owners on edits.
