    Is it possible to create a JotForm where a person can return and update information entered earlier

    Asked by Ajit Virani  on January 02, 2015 at 03:18 PM

    Is it possible to create a form where an user first setup user-id and password, enters information and can come back later to update information entered ?

    Do I need an existing website to use Jotform ?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I highly recommend that you also create your JotForm account if you haven't done so yet.

    You can use this link http://www.jotform.com/signup to signup using your email account.

    As to your inquiry, the capability for the user to come back at a later date to edit/modify submission is very much possible in JotForm. 

    You can check this user guide on how to

    User guide: -How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date

    Please take note that it does not require for form users to have userid/password just to access the form submissions. 

    The user/s can use the JotForm directly even if you do not have your own website.

    Hope this help. Please contact us again anytime for any assistance you need.
