How to Assign Status to Form Submissions

March 28, 2023

In this guide, you’ll learn how to manage submissions for approvals. 

You can approve or deny submissions using a hidden dropdown field. This is similar to an Admin Approval System. An approval system can be useful in many circumstances, such as accepting or declining a user’s booking. It’s also useful for application forms; you can approve applications if users meet the requirements or reject them if they don’t.

  1. Add a Dropdown element to your form and add the approval options you want.
