I want to add a form to several pages for individual profiles.Asked by shakyhudew on November 17, 2014 at 01:04 PM
Is it possible to put the form on a website, ask someone to fill in their information and then have some way to close for editing so that the form is in tact but have that person's specific information in each field? Or put a password on it so they can go back later and add or remove information?
information edit link update submission
You can actually setup the autoresponder email to send a submission edit link. Here is our guide on setting up such an email:
This will allow your users to return to your form after submission to edit their answers.
Just in case, here is our guide on embedding your form to a website:

I am guessing there is not a way to fill in the form on the webpage and save the entries for that webpage while keeping the form in tact the way it looks while they are completing it and adding a way for only that person, or someone with a password, to go back and edit the form to add information as they gain achievements, etc. and still leave the form? I am trying to add softball player profiles to my site and allow them to update their own profile at anytime (daily, weekly, monthly. yearly) like a blog without them having to edit their form and having to change it myself on a rebuilt page.
As mentioned by David, you would provide the user with the edit-link for the form.

Only the person with the edit link, will be able to edit the form that was submitted.
I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
If you look at the form and fill in a few boxes, that is exactly the way I want everyone to see the form when they visit the same page. The only exception would be that when the original person who filled it out could use a password to add information to the page as they achieve it without myself having to interact with their profile page
When the edit link is used, the user is taken to the form with all the information that was entered. They would be able to change the information as well as complete any fields that were not completed before.
See the screenshot below for an example of how the form looks when the edit link is accessed:

I have seen a the emails and have the edit link enabled. If you click the link I provided. Pretend that form is on 10 different pages and one of those pages is my daughters softball profile. She fills out that form and then closes it. You are a scout and go to her profile page. I want that scout to go to her profile page and see that exact form(the link above) but with her information filled in those boxes. But I also want only her to be able to edit that information and add more as she gains achievements.
"I want that scout to go to her profile page and see that exact form(the link above) but with her information filled in those boxes..."
For the scout to be able to do this, then they should also need to use the edit_link of the original submission of the form done by your daughter. Simply put, there should be a way for the scout to access or click on that edit_link from the email.
You can post the submission email message (that have the edit link) in the profile page also. This way the scout will be able to see and use it.
OR provide copy of the form submission email to the scount where they will use the edit_link in the email message.
Hope this help. Please inform us if still not clear.
