Multiple forms on 1 person?Asked by stephen.robinson on March 29, 2016 at 09:50 AM
I have finally figured out how to use the option of returning to a form later to complete. However, I need one person to be able to access multiple versions of the same form. We are using jotform to submit marking assessments and the same person may be submitting multiple assessments (e.g. for more than one student). At the moment it seems like there is a one form=one email address option. Is there a way around this?
I am not quite sure if I understand your concern. Perhaps you can provide us a sample or a step by step on how your form works? A process a flow?
Your users can submit the form multiple times, you can also use multiple email addresses as a recipient for your notifications. But I am not sure how your form actually works, so I can't provide a proper solution. Please do provide us more details. If you are looking for the edit link for the submission, you can check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date. That allows anyone to update a submission as long as they have the edit link.
We'll wait for your response.
Thanks for the quick response. I have set up the system with the two following forms:
This provides a link to the second form and a session ID that a responder can return to whenever to complete the submission of the second form
I have set up the response to the first form to include the student i.d. so that the responder has a reference to the student.
The problem comes if I submit the first form twice (with different student numbers). Only one of the two session IDs is saved and can be returned to, presumably because of the same email address?
So I made a series of thorough test. And it seems like the email is most likely the basis for the saved session, aside from the ID you have set in the "?session=" value.
Please note that using the sessions will NOT save the form as a completed submission. You won't be able to find any records of the session data in your account, only through the session link. Once the form is submitted, I believe the session will end. Based from our guide here: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later. We are using two main fields, which is the name and the email field. In the session value, we are using the email tag. If you used the same emails in the session, it would most likely cause conflict and tamper each session link.
