    How can i make sure that when a form is completed, the first version does not get deleted if the respondent tries to complete again?

    Asked by vday on November 11, 2013 at 11:00 AM


    I'd like to know how to manage submissions of forms so that when a form is completed, the first version does not get deleted when the respondent re-edits the form again.

    I'd like to have a copy of the different versions the respondent submits from their first attempt to the next attempts.


    Many thanks

    Unfortunately, when you allow someone to re-edit their submission using the edit link, the current submission to your form will be overwritten once they submit the form. This is how it works with us, and there's currently no way you can change this from our website.

    One solution though is to keep your emails coming from your form. You should be able to compare changes because when someone modifies submission, you will additionally get an email with Prefix "Edit". See screenshot for example:
