    My form requires 2 different departments to fill out the form. Is it possible to have a workflow where when someone from, say, the HR dept. fill out the first part of the form, then when they submit it, it sends an email to the IT Dept. to complete the rest of the form?

    Hi,

    There is not a way to insert two submit buttons, however, what you want to achieve can be made possible by inserting Edit Links in your form's notification email.

    Here is how the workflow goes

    HR fills out the section of the form that is assigned to them.
    HR submits.
    IT receives a notification email with the edit link to the submitted entry
    IT fills out the rest of the form
    IT submits.
    Entry is saved with both information from HR and IT

    To create a notification email, refer to this user guide

    To insert edit link into the notification email that you created, watch this short screencast

    Below is an example of an email alert that has an edit link:

    Hope you find this post useful. Let us know if you have questions or if you need clarifications regarding the steps outlined in the resources I mentioned. Thank you.
