Enable External Collaboration

The External Collaboration feature extends the External Submissions feature to enable external users to edit forms they have already submitted. When this feature is enabled external users will be prompted to enter their email address when submitting a form and the system will send them a confirmation email that their form was received. If they wish to edit a form they previously submitted they can simply click the link from the confirmation email and this will open a page where they can request a temporary PIN. The PIN code is valid 5 minutes and if they enter it incorrectly 3 times they will be required to request a new one. The system will email them the PIN and once they enter it they can open their form.

The External Collaboration feature is only available when the External Submissions feature is enabled.

Example

 

 

Confirmation email

Enables external users to receive an email notification after submitting a form.
