    Is there a way to distribute submission data to being limited to certain users?

    Asked by SparkRehab on February 11, 2015 at 03:05 PM

    I have several forms from which I will be receiving submissions.  I want to limit access to specific forms by my users. 

    Say my company receives 10 submissions on one form.  I know I can limit users, people designated from other companies, to see only that one form's submissions.  But can I limit them to see only one submission?

    As an example, submission 1 is for Alex and submission 5 is for Mary.  I have 5 users.  I want Users 1, 3 and 5 to see only submission 1 and I want Users 2, 4 and 5 to see submission 5.  Is this possible?


    Thank you

    It seems to me that you're looking for a method to distribute form submissions to subusers to look over after they are submitted and only allow them to be seen by certain people.

    The closest that I know to that would be to use the subaccount user feature but it is per form and not per submission so that might not fully be what you are seeking.

    Aside from that though, the only other thing I can think of that may work as a workaround would be to first have your form and it would have your information that you are gathering from your users. You would then use conditional logic to send a copy of the submission to certain users based on user input or specified criteria where it could be only seen by them and edited by the edit link that is sent.
