    Hello

    When a new document version updates within an organisation e.g version 3.2 and the fields are the same, will I have to upload a new PDF and start a brand-new job form from scratch or can I use the existing job form link and simply update the new PDF?


    I've posted the current form I'm using in the link below and also uploaded the new version document.


    Kind regards

    Will this create a new submission link? If it does it means I have to update all my integrations with the new link. This will be time-consuming.

    Is there a way to update a new version of the PDF and keep the same submission jotform link e.g https://form.jotform.com/211440055030436
