Can i limit data that users can edit?Asked by bdxbranddynamix on April 09, 2015 at 05:47 PM
Can i limit data that users can edit?
For example i do not what them to be able to edit their names after submission.
This is a re-post of a comment on How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date
Unfortunately there is no condition logic yet that can make a field Read-Only to be able to locked them from edition.
There is show/hide or make fields *Required base on condition, but no lock/unlock option.
A workaround conditional statement you can use is the Populate/Update fields base on Condition.
But this will require creating multiple duplicate fields, 1 for the actual answers, and then 1 for the read-only field.
Example form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50988616180968
In the test form, when you click on I Agree it will display a different fields that are read only.. so you cannot edit them.
Let us know if this workaround can work for you.
I will also submit a feature request ticket to have the capability to lock/unlock fields base on a condition.
I also really need this feature!
