How can I create forms that the participant can come back and edit/update later?

    Does your forms allow for the original person who made the entry to edit the entry later? For example I am seeking a solution that allows for a text box to be embedded under videos. This is a membership site that users will log into and complete course assignments. After the participant watches a video they will complete "homework" form that they can save and come back to later (ex: when they leave the page and come back the entry is still visible and they can edit if needed)?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I also recommend creating your JotForm account if you haven't done so yet.

    Use this link to signup for an account using your email account.

    As to your current inquiry..

    Yes, this is very much possible in JotForm. There are 2 features that allow this in JotForm

    1. -How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    The form can be auto saved and auto fill on the browser, which will allow the form respondent to come again later.


    2.  -How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date


    You can use the email to provide edit link that will allow the form respondent to come back and redo the submission of the form even at a later date.


    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
