    Save form and continue later

    Asked by Harry on May 16, 2013 at 03:55 PM

    I am looking for a form that my clients can fill in and later on when they need to update their info they must be able to pull their data from a database and be able to view all the data they filled in previously and update what is necessary.

     and later on when they need to update their  info they must be able to pull their data from a databaseand be able to view all the data they filled in previously and update what is necessary.

    I noticed that once the form is submitted the data clears.

    My question was and stil is: Can they update their info later, say in a year’s time?

    If not I have wasted my money.

    @harrycweb

    Yes that's possible. You should look at the following guide on how to edit the submission data:

    How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date

    This will allow your user to submit the data and then later on edit those data by the help of edit_link. Only challenge (as you want to update it after a year) you will have to keep the list of edit_link / emails for later use.

    Let us know if you need further help on this.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth
