    How do I limit the authority in changing submission?

    Asked by portoakland on December 04, 2013 at 06:29 PM


    After people submit the information, they can use the link I give to them to change the submission.

    But can I limit them to change only some part of their submission??

    For example, people submit their name, email, address.

    By using the link, they are able to change their email and address only.

    They cannot change the name anymore.

    Is there a way to do this??

    Hi there,

    Sorry but I found no way to achieved what you wanted. That's not doable on edit submissions, and it seems there's no possible workaround to achieved this unfortunately. I am thinking of using another form with only the fields you'd like to be edited then pass the data from the first form to the other form that you'd only want to the users to be edited however I'm not sure if that's useful to you, but it's worth a try.

    You can use this app to prepopulate data. http://prepopulate.jotform.io/
