    Can I edit a submission from a report on my page?

    Asked by sigmapi on April 23, 2012 at 02:46 PM

    I am the public relations and recruitment chairman for my fraternity. My organization is using jotform to keep track of the gentlemen we talk to by creating a database of names and contact information of gentlemen we talk to. I have a report of all of the submissions (gentleman's credentials) posted on my website for the members of my organization. I want members to be able to adjust the submissions at a later time, however.


    Is there a way to be able to edit a submission from a report?

    I will not be sending out a confirmation email. Submissions will be made from my private portal via a lightbox popup, and will be viewed from the online report.

    You can not edit the report submissions of your form embedded on the website. You can only do it in your submission report when you are login to JotForm Builder.

    What you can do however is to post the Generated Reports (Excel, CSV) into your own web page and your group can access and edit it there.

    Please inform us if you need further clarifications. Thanks.

    Yes, nothing get uploaded back to your site. The web forms are always NEW instance of the form everytime user access the page/web site where the form is embedded.

    But the generated reports. you post it in your website, if its in public then, updates can be viewed by your groups.
