Announcing: Editable Form Submissions


ProntoForms has rolled out a new, optional feature that allows you to edit form submissions. Select a submission from the web portal, or the Sent box of the mobile app, and send it for editing. Add a note to the request and we'll show it to the editor - a great tool for pointing out what needs to be changed.

The ability to edit form submissions is configured at the form level, giving you control over which forms you want to allow your users to edit.



This feature makes it easy to:

  • correct errors that would impact downstream workflows,
  • allow mobile users to adjust forms if a customer changes their mind.

Spotted a mistake in your mobile form submission? Edit the submission without duplicating data or needing to fill out an entirely new version of the form. Noticed a field worker missed a section? Add a note to the request for edits to point out exactly what needs to be changed.
