    Can a form be submitted more than once by one person, to updated data?

    Asked by whctigers on January 31, 2016 at 07:43 PM

    While testing the form out I got one of our members to submit the form.

    She had some changes she wanted done to the form. So I did those, then asked her to resubmit and she received the following message -


    "Sorry! Only one entry is allowed. Multiple Submissions is disabled for this form."

    Is there a way around this or can't it be changed?

    This is because you have enabled the "Form Limits"->Unique Submission to "Loose Check".

    If you choose "Loose Check", this prevents the user to submit/resubmit the form if his browser already made a previous submission (based from cookies).

    If you do not want to limit multiple submissions, then you can disable this. Then you can also provide a edit link for the user by checking this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date 

    Let us know if you need more information on this.
