    Form options after form is submitted

    Asked by Nixor on December 27, 2011 at 01:25 AM

    My form is an online application form for admission into a school. I was wondering if it is possible to maintain data on teh decision made on the application in jotform itself. For example, after the application is received, can I get the option of adding a status to that application (accept/reject/hold) and have it send automated emails depending on the status?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It is possible to add a Hidden field to the form, and then edit the submission in order to put some status to the Hidden box.

    However, I am sorry to inform you, but I am afraid that it is not possible to send automated emails based on that field within JotForm.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
