    Form submissions: Ability to have the date stamp for each edit of the submission

    Asked by Central_Saint_Martins on October 19, 2016 at 12:19 PM

    Is it possible to develop a date stamp on edits to your form? This would be a really useful feature to quickly see at what point changes were made.

    Once the submission received for a form, it can be edited any number of times either from the submissions view or using the edit link by the customer. The edit link never expires and the submission can be edited as long as the submission is not deleted.

    Unfortunately, at the moment it is not possible to get the date stamp when the submission is edited. However, you may enable the option Send on Edit in the notification email so that the email notification will be sent each time the submission edited.

    Hope this information helps! Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks, I am currently aware of the feature outlined above. It would be great to had the feature developed that edited fields are date stamped for quick reference when reading through documents. Could this idea be passed on to the developers please as i am aware other similar requests have been made in the past.

    We have forwarded the thread to our backend team as a feature request for evaluation. I cannot guarantee that the request will be accepted for implementation or cannot provide any ETA for implementing if accepted. However, any updates in this regard you'll be posted here.

    Thank you!
