    We have multiple people working on and evaluating the submissions of our forms. Is it possible to add a comment so that we can see what is the current status on the application?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    If you are asking to directly comment on submissions the answer is not possible. However, you can create a Feedback Button on your website that allows you to connect to your people.

    Here's how you to create a FeedBack button just in a minute only.

    I mean us, as the owner of the form, to comment on submissions.

    Would it be possible to add a hidden textbox for that purpose - so that we can edit later or wil the person who submitted be notified about edits every time we press sumit?

    The best way I can currently think of to accomplish that would be edit the submission using the Edit button on the form's "Submissions" page. Go to your "My Forms" page, click the form in question and then the Submissions button. When the "Submissions" page loads, you'll see the Edit button on the top right. Click it, insert your comments and then click the form's submission button. The original submitter will not be notified of any changes. It might not be a bad idea to add a text area to the form labeled "For official use only" for this purpose -- No need to hide it. (Not that it couldn't be hidden using the Conditions Wizard but it just seems like it would be an unnecessary step.)
