    Is there a way for me go and edit details then submit form again?

    Asked by abcmobility on July 14, 2014 at 11:56 AM

    So my form is a request form, so the person requesting the app sends in the form and then on the backend we want to add details to that form on things that we do. I saw the hidden field widget and added that. But I was wondering is there a way to send the app request in and then me go into it and edit details then submit it?

     

    If not is there a way for me to format the excel report so that I can see where I filled in information and where the form requestor sent information.

    Hello abcmobility,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to receive a submission email once a user completes the form and then you should be edit the details form there itself. Is that correct?

    There is no built-in feature to achieve your requirement but it is possible to create such forms by taking advantage of a combination of our "Conditions", "Auto-responder" and "{edit-link}" features. Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Create a form with two sections in form. One will be filled by user and the other section will be filled by you where you can add your own details.

    2. Add two form collapse in your form before and after the section to be filled by you.

    3. Add a text box in your form to ask users for a pass / access key and based on that only the second section of your form will be displayed (please do not use the word password in the text box question label). Check the example screenshot below:

    4. Add condition in your form to show / hide the form collapse if the value of the access key matches. The following guide should help you add conditions: https://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    5. Add one notification email alert and one auto-responder in your form. The notification email alert will be sent to you so that you can add your details in the form and the other one will be sent to the user. Following guides should help you:

    Add notification:  https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-Up-Email-Notifications

    6. In the notification email alert, you should add a {edit_link} which will allow you to be able to edit and add the details in the form. Please check the screenshot below on how to add the {edit_link}: 

    7. Add condition in your from to check if first section of your form is filled then send the submission notification email to your email address.

    9. Add another condition in your form to see if the second section of the form is filled, then only send the auto-responder emails. Once you submits the form the auto-responder email will be sent to the user who originally submitted the form. The following guide should help you on how to send conditional emails:  https://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection

    Hope this helps.
