Edit the submission that was made by an employee

    A Dean is requesting that a Dpt. Director can edit an entry made by another employee (since she said she can´t access the form today from her home). Is that possible? What are the alternatives? If any.

    I was thinking of sending a forward email of the entry in submissions, to the Dpt. Director email so he could enter it again, then delete the original entry. This entry has attachments and I think they can be downloaded too.

    I know, but I don´t want to make any editions myself. I only want the person who made the submission to edit it. And I don´t want to give access to the submission table because they can see and edit all the information from other departments.

    You can let users update only their submissions at a later date.

    If you want to do it for already received submissions, you can create an edit submission link.


    {id} is the Submission ID.

    Please remove the curly braces on the link you provided.
