  1. Are there any news about the possibility of edit of submissions through the API?
    I am thinking about using it like a service form for orders but have to share a lot of data with our customers

    1. Hello David, I am afraid that it won’t be possible to edit submissions via API. The only actions that can be made by using API are detailed in our Developer Center. Can you please drop us an email at with more details about your scenario? Perhaps we might be able to provide a different solution. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    1. Hi Chris! Not at all, if you make changes to a form, you will still have created that one form. Only if you choose to duplicate it would a new form be created in your account.

    1. Hi Taylor! No, the owner will be able to edit the submission entry and the form users will not be notified. To notify them, you need to enable the edit submission option in Settings – Advanced – Submissions tab and the autoresponder. In the autoresponder you need to include the field variables. This way the user will see the updates.
      The edit submission feature has two main options:
      Resend confirmation message (autoresponder) every time the submission is edited -> sent to the form users
      Resend notification e-mail every time the submission is edited -> sent to the form owner/form recipients
