I need to create a form that will be emailed to customers where they would complete a series of questions (name, address..etc) and then submit. Then....I need to be able to take this form and add my information to it (about this customer).
I would like it all on one form so the info about each customer is all in one place but I do not want the customer to see the fields I will be completing.
Does this makes sense?

Yes, it makes perfect sense. Basically, you need two things to make this work:
1. An "edit link" in the notification you receive when the user completes the form
2. A way to hide the fields in an "Official Use Only" section of the form, that are only revealed after a certain action is taken on your part. (A password field might be too easy to crack but I think there's a more creative way).
I shall return shortly with a solution! (Wish me luck :)

Perfect! Is this "edit link" that is in the notification something standard...or something I need to make? I suppose I could just go look :)
I look forward to see what you come up with. Oh...and the "official use only" doesn't have to be all that secret. It would just be nice if the customer didn't have to see the fields we use concerning them....but it isn't anything that "has" to be hidden. It would just be nice.

By the time you had stated that the official section didn't have to be hidden, I had already setup a different system than the usual password solution. Anyway, the test form can be found at http://www.jotform.com/form/20091425315. You will first need to clone the form to your account and replace "email@example.com" in the recipient field of the notification with your actual email address. In order to fully test the system, you will have to use another email address when submitting as the "Prospective Team Member".
To reveal the hidden fields, select the numbers 7, 3, 19, 22, 31, 35, 50, 58 and 62. To find out how all this was done, check the conditions (Setup & Embed tab > Conditions) and the injected CSS.
And yes, the edit link is a standard feature.
Should you need clarification or help with anything, please let us know.

This is brilliant!! I think this system you set up will work perfect.
Thank you so much!
