    I need the USER to be able to EDIT his submission afterward...

    Asked by Yannick on April 05, 2013 at 09:53 AM

    I receive submissions from different users.

    I need then a way to allow them to edit THEIR submission (and theirs only) when they need to make some corrections

    Can this be done utomatically?

    Or manually (I coul dsend them a URL to allow them to edit THEIR record only)

    My understanding of the security model is that it is not at record level, right? Either I grant access to the whole database/submission, or not, but not to individual records...?

    A work around? Even manual may be ok (few users: 100 or so, 1 submission only by user)

    Thanks for help

    Hi there, 

    You can accomplish this by setting up an Autoresponder on your form:


    On the Autoresponder e-mail, you can add an edit link.  The user can always go to their e-mail and clik on the link in order to edit their submission.

    Please give that a try and let us know if it helped!
