    after users update their form submissions, will the answers that have been updated will be marked in some way so I can know what changed and what didn't?

    Hi Galita,

    There is currently no method to track what has changed when a user edits a submission. The Edit Submission Link is meant to allow users to correct errors, or update old information. If you are trying to create a workflow that tracks information as it is updated I would recommend having the user create a new submission instead of editing the old one.

    Otherwise, you could compare the original notification email to the one sent after the user has edited the submission.

    Thank you for your understanding. Please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with!
