How to Let Users Update Their Entries

April 6, 2024

By allowing your form submitters to edit their entries, they can correct mistakes or update information as needed, which is especially useful for forms that require accurate and up-to-date data. This improves the overall quality of the collected data, as users are more likely to review and ensure the accuracy of their submissions.
