    I have created a form that allows members to select either yes or no against their name this is then displayed on a html report below the form. to do this members go into a password protected area on our site. Users do not have to enter email to complete the form. Is it possible to allow the user to change there submission ie from yes to no which then changes their previous submission on the html report and not just add another submission line to the report.

     

    Thanks

    What I can suggest is for them to contact you in case they would like to make changes to their submission. Then you can provide them an edit link. This edit link allows the user to edit their previous submission. Once they submitted it, it will only update the previous data.

    Here's a quick guide for that:

    1. Look for the submission ID of the submission that needs to be updated via the Submission page. Here's a guide on Where-to-Find-the-Submission-ID.

    2. Once you already have the submission ID, append it to this link:

    3. Then you can send that link to the user via email.
