    After submitting a form, is there a way to go back to the filled form?

    Asked by jolizzy on March 05, 2012 at 06:30 PM

    Parents will be adding more than one child to registration, but I don't like the way the spreadsheet formats if I just add extra name fields for additional children.

    Wish you wouldn't count views from the same IP address--makes me think someone is looking at my question and getting ready to answer!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can provide your users with the Edit Links. Is this something you are looking for?

    Won't that just change the original record that the user submitted?  Plus, I don't want them to have to wait for email confirmation--if nothing else, then I would like them to be able to go back to the completed form that they already submitted so that they could just edit the child's name and age to add another child.

    You are right, it will change the original record. However, you will receive the Edit: Notification email with the new data.

    I would like them to be able to go back to the completed form that they already submitted so that they could just edit the child's name and age to add another child.

    It is possible to achieve something very similar with the following workaround:

    Mike, I tried this, and wasn't able to do more than edit the original submission.  I want to populate the fields with the info from the original submission, but be able to change the child's name and submit it as a new record. Can it be done?

    Unfortunately this is not possible with the Edit Link, it can only be used to edit the existing submission  and not post new submissions. Such functionality is not yet available however this has already been added to our feature request list.


    Thanks!
