    Can I change previously submitted Data?

    Asked by lortsmarketing on May 25, 2011 at 03:02 PM

    I have several forms that we use the information to contact the customer about the program. A couple of the customers have changed addresses or emails and we would like to change the information they already submitted and/or create a new entry for them while permanently deleting the other. Since we pull a new, updated form each time their old information will always be on there causing us to send info to wrong addresses.

    Hi,

    To edit previously submitted data:

    1.  Go to My Forms
    2.  Click on the form with the submission data that you want to edit
    3.  Click the Submissions button

    4.  Inside the Submissions page, choose the exact submission entry from the table list below
    5.  Click on Edit button

    6.  Edit data then click Submit button to save the changes you have made

     

    Hope this post helps. Contact us again if there's anything else you'd lilke to ask.

    It would be nice if you had a save button to save the edits.  When I submit, I get another submission counted against my account, and another unneeded email in my inbox.

    Hello thehiers.

    Edits dont count as a new submission against your account. Please double check that & let us know thats its definately an issue for you.

    I would tend to agree with you, that when an edit is done, using a 'submit' button rather than a 'save' could be a little misleading. I will add it to our feature request list & ask the developers to consider a change.

    I will also ask the developers to consider an 'opt out' of sending email confirmation after a submission has been editted.

    Editing a record in this way does deduct from my alloted number of submissions.

    And to compound the conusion of the "submit to save" issue, once that has been done, you have to click "cancel edit", then go back to "my forms" and then back to submission before you can see that your changes took.  

    Thanks for your attention to this.  This is a much nicer tool than others that I've tried.

    This is pretty helpful.  Is there a fast method for being able to make these revisions on our mobil phones or tablets?
