    Hello Virginia_Dignum,

    You can give access to your colleagues to edit the form simultaneously.

    To better assist you, I have cloned your form.

    Please follow the below steps to give access;

    1. Go to the "BUILD" tab of your form to which you want to give access.
    2. Click the "Collaboration" icon on the top right corner of your form.1603279210_5f90196aed7f7_Screen Shot 202
    3. Click "Copy Link" and share it with your colleagues. 1603279317_5f9019d5d0b94_Screen Shot 202

    To share your submissions with your colleagues, please follow these steps;

    1. Go to the "MY FORM" page.
    2. Select the form you want to share.
    3. Select "More" and click on "Submissions."1603280185_5f901d3a00854_Screen Shot 202

    Thanks for this! We are almost there. The only remaining issue is how to
    make my colleagues able to edit the submissions too: when I share the
    submissions page they don't get the button that allows to edit the
    submissions (we need that in order for them to fill in the hidden
    approval fields to complete the reviewing process)

    Having others help you build a form is what form collaboration meant.

    Guide: Understanding Form Collaboration.

    If you want to give access to others to edit submissions, you can have additional users added to your account. Please check out our JotForm Enterprise plan.
