    Allow users to edit an input after submitting a form.

    Asked by maground on October 06, 2016 at 12:42 PM

    Hi

    I want the user to be able, after submitting a form, to go a step back and have all information still entered in the form. This way he can make changes and then resend the form. 
    this way, when for example, just one checkbox has to be changed, he does not have to fill out the other 20 fields again.

    1. Safari: Click backwards, it just resends the form. Clicking two steps backwards, or going two steps back over the History-menue, the form has all information, but on the bottom where there is my "Submit" button, it says "Please Wait". Can not submit changes. Reloading the page, Form empty.

     

    2. Chrome: If I click back as much as I want, it always reloads the submitted form (PDF), I have to go to the History-Menue and go back two steps. Then the Form is there with all info and I can make changes and Re-Submit it with the changes.

     

    Is there a way to get the user back to the Form? without having him trying to find out how to get there, and also make it work in Safari?

     

    Thank you,

     

    Roberto

    As you want the user to be able to edit forms after submitting it, you can setup an autoresponder, where you can include the edit link to the submission, in that way the can edit any field.

    Here is how to setup an autoresponder: https://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder
