Can Users Edit Submitted Form Data

    Is there a way to allow users to access forms once they have been submitted to modify them?

    I need to use Save & Continue to permit form fillers to access partially completed forms from different computers/browsers, and also to prevent lost data due to cache clearing, so I see how they can modify pre-submission, but in testing once I have submitted the form if I try to re-access it I get a blank form that creates a new submission.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi,

    To allow users to edit their submission, include an "edit submission" link in your autoresponder:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date

    That link will allow your users to return to the form with their data entered and re-submit the form under the same ID.  This should not create a new submission, only overwrite the old one.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
