    Hi Jotform, 


    I need to create a fillable form that needs to be approved before it can be accepted. For example for our event, participants fill out a form and I would review to make sure all the information is correct then approve. If they need to make changes, I need to be able to email them to make corrections to the form before it can be accepted for competition. 

    We also have different prices based on how they fill out the form. Can this be done so they have an final total based on their selections?

    From what I understood, you need some sort of workflow process, if that's the case, please check: https://www.jotform.com/help/432-A-General-Approach-on-Building-an-Approval-Process-Workflow

    Where you can receive a submission and approve/reject, after which the related information would be sent to submitter. Regarding prices, you can do a calculation in the form based on certain selections on fields that you specify, and you can pass such calculation to payment field.
