How can updates be provided without having to complete an entire form?

    I am creating a MEMBER PROFILE form for an organization. When updated information, i.e., address, phone number, etc., is submitted, can the member provide just the updated information vs. completing the entire form? I purposely indicate some fields must be filled and have a concern this will negate members providing simply updates of previously submitted information. If just providing the updated information is an option, is there a method or field I can add which will assist in syncing with their initial submission? Is there an ability where the member can pull up their profile and revise their information? At the beginning of the form, I request members to check whether this is a first submission or a revision to a current MEMBER PROFILE.

    Hi,

    When editing the submissions, the user will still need to submit the whole form to send any edits.
    However, with conditional logic, you can make correcting only the necessary details easier.

    For example, if you will let your users only edit their contact information, you can hide all other questions on the form.
    You can create a condition that is based on the question asking if the user is filling out the form for the first time. If they answer no, then hide the fields that the user cannot edit, and show only the ones you will allow them to update.
