Can the submitted data be changed without the need of re-submitting the form?

    Hello,

     

    we have been using JotForm for a while now so our staff can submit error-reports.

    As the person responsible for the reports I feel that I need to edit some submissions.

    Is this possible with JotForm? Can submitted data be changed without the need of re-submitting the form?

    Alternatively, is there an option that all submissions have to pass an approval stage?

    E.g. someone submits something, I reject it, the person can change the submission and only then it is saved?


    Best wishes,
    Stefan

    You can edit the submission in the form submissions page, but you have to re-submit it after changing the data to save the changes.

    You can also add the edit link in your notifier so you can get a link of every submission to edit. Please refer to this guide for the edit link feature:

    As for the approval workflow, I will answer that in the following thread:
