    I'd like to add a column to the submissions grid that has a link that can take the user to the form with all of that submissions info filled in. I would use some sort of concatenation, like in excel to piece together all of the row's data and add it as parameters to the form URL. In our case we will have a submission and later will need to submit a revised version of a submission without losing the previous info. Is there a way to do this? OR, could this be added as a new feature? I am sure a lot of people would like a custom column in the submission grid. Love the platform! Keep up the good work! Thanks! - Kyle

    Kyle,

    Sorry but it is not possible to add a custom column to the submissions grid. I will add this to our wishlist but we cannot guarantee whether it will be approved or not.

    In our case we will have a submission and later will need to submit a revised version of a submission without losing the previous info. Is there a way to do this?

    Sessions can be used to accomplish this feat. Kindly refer to this guide for more information:

    What happens is that each user will have their information saved (but not submitted) to sessions. You may then use this form session to submit a revised version without affecting the submitted copy.
