    User's See only their own form submission

    Asked by wyattdesigns on October 26, 2016 at 07:55 AM

    Hi. I am looking for a way to let users see their previously submitted form at a later time.

    I have a client who runs a weight loss contest. Users fill out forms with their beginning weight. Often after the challenge, people want to go back and see what they had entered for their beginning weight. I don't want everyone to be able to see everyone else's submissions so I grid listing or other such report won't work. I want each user to only see the form that they had filled out. How can this be accomplished?

    own Submissions fill and go back

    Hi,

    You can actually let your users update their form submissions at a later date. This will make them available to see the latest entry they entered in your form. 

    Please read our guide about it here:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date

    When you inject an "Edit Link" on your Auto Responder like shown on the guide, users will be able to see their latest entry or update their entries through that link. They will not have any access to the other submissions that were filled out by other users.

    Please check this feature of ours and see if it works for you. 

    Do contact us whenever you need assistance. We will be glad to be helping you.
