    Is there an option that all submissions have to pass an approval stage?

    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?

    You can use this workaround:

    Then if you wish to send an email to the user for the status, you can send a conditional email based on the entry in the approval box.

    Here's our guide for that:

    But instead of using the notifier in the condition, you have to add an autoresponder email: http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder

    Let us know if you need any further assistance for this process.
