    Can I Create a Separated Disqus for Every New Submissions?

    Asked by Impacct on March 24, 2016 at 07:51 AM

    I want each discussion to be unique to that particular edit link

    This way if a new person submits a new form they start a new discussion but people editing an existing form can continue their own discussion.

    Is this possible?

    If you are mentioning submission by saying "discussion", this is the natural behavior of our forms, so you don't need to do any extra task. Let me explain it to you, the data from the users are kept separately, so you will get email notifications for  every submission individually and all of them are stored apart from the other submissions.

    When you add the "{edit_link}", the user can edit its existent submission, so it doesn't record a new one. In addition, you can find steps to add a "{edit_link}" to your form from the link below:

    If there are still some blurry parts, please do let us know.

    disqus is a widget you have available. Please look into that and respond once you are familiar.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, I thought it was a misspelling. According to my tests, the widget works independently from JotForm submission system, so opening a discussion or adding a new comment on it are not related to submissions.

    User can see all of the discussions or comments related to the form and can edit it with its Disqus, Facebook or etc. accounts, if he/she wants. In a nutshell, submitter's can edit its previous comments/discussion or create/reply new ones on the widget; but all this operations are handled on Disqus system, so there is no workaround for this with submissions.

     

    I hope this one is what you are wondering. If you need to know extra information, please do let us know.

    Thanks.

    gotcha. Thank you

    Are there any plans to make an update widget based on a particular form submissions?

    I want to be able to give and get updates from people who submit the form and I don't want other form users to see these updates

    What I have in mind is like this question thread, but in a form.
