    Feature Request: Add New from Submission edit page

    Asked by G3Tech on May 28, 2014 at 02:43 PM

    I'd like to be able to not only edit from the Submissions page but also add a new record without having to go to My forms and view the form.  Just a plus sign somewhere.

    When you say "Add a new record" do you mean add a new submissions without having to view, fill and submit the form? How about downloading your submissions to Excel so you can add records locally?

    You can also import submissions to your forms using the following app, FYI.


    Let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Add a new submission from the submission database edit screen. Example: I'm in the submissions screen doing some updating and find I have to enter a new record.  I would like to do that without leaving the Submission screen.  Just an add instead of an edit. 

    Exporting to an XLS, updating it and re-importing is a LOT more work than jumping over to the My Forms / View forms screen.  But thanks, I didn't realize there was an import utility.  All those new toys to learn about.

    @ G3Tech


    I understand that you already know that you can already add submission to the form's submissions by simply submitting the form. 

    You can also just have the Submissions Page opened and the form itself opened also on another instance(or window or tab in the browser) -- and just submit the form. When the form is submitted, if you refreshed the Submission's page, you will see the newest submission appended already.

    We understand what your request feature is about, but we also need to provide some substantation to our support developers that the feature being requested have merit.

    Hope this help. Please tell us your thougth about my suggestion.
