    Is there a way to only make certain fields editable upon submission?

    Asked by rlzolinas on May 19, 2015 at 08:36 AM

    I'm currently working on a contract form.

    I need to be able to let conference services enter the event information and and submit to 2 parties for signatures. However, I do not want the people that are signing the form to be able to edit any of the information that conference services added, they should only be able to add their signatures and dates of signatures. Is there a way to do this?

    My form is still in progress. I wanted to make sure this could be done before I go any further.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Robin,

    Anyone can edit the submission through edit link and there's no option to restrict someone from doing so in the form builder. But I think a workaround can be made using page break and conditional logic. I'm creating a test form now, I'll let you know later.

    I thought a parameter can be added in the edit URL, but it's still not possible so I'm sorry, I don't think there's a workaround for this. 

    I would suggest adding a note instead in the form for the two parties. A note that would tell them not to edit the areas that are not for them.

    Thanks. I'll have to figure something out. We can't have a client editing the contract :-)
