    Add a column to the submissions table to show when a submission was edited

    Asked by mulvinc on March 18, 2015 at 01:03 PM

    I love that people can easily edit their submissions! It would be nice to have a column in the submissions table that would indicate when the submission was last edited. Since we will be using JotForm for proposal submissions, this will be helpful if someone asks why something was changed. We can at least say..."It was changed on March 18 at 1:00 p.m.)


    It won't tell us what was changed, but at least we will know when, and that may help jog memory.

    Hi mulvinc,

    Unfortunately at this time we do not have an option to automatically add a field to indicate when your form was last edited.

    You can however add a field to your form that would be filled with the last date that your submissions were edited. This would then be displayed on your submissions page. You can also add a field to add the reason why the form was edited.

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
