    Resend a form loaded with the already input data

    Asked by stefanrehm on August 31, 2015 at 06:06 PM

    Hi there, 

    We are having quite complex forms and more often than not we are receiving forms that are not filled out correctly. We need to check where the errors are and then re-send those forms in order for the recipient to correct the relevant information. 

    Currently, however, we cannot find a way to send the form again in a way that it comes pre-loaded with the already input data from the previous attempt. Instead, all the fields have to be filled out again, which is a major headache given the length and complexity of our forms. 

    Is there a solution to this problem?
