Edit Response

Allow responders to edit responses after submission. For example, if a student is taking a quiz and is unable to finish before the end of class, the student can submit the quiz to save their answers and then continue the quiz during the next class period.

        My team uses Forms to collect data for planning events. It's usual that the information could come from several people. It would be great if they could share the same link to access the same form to add information. PLEASE make this happen, it's a feature offered in Google Forms that my company is moving away from.

        Any chance this is ever going to happen? I've just been recommending my staff use google forms. Much easier and actually gets support

        Yes please! .... have started using in class and there are always students who are not able to complete the task for various reasons.. they need to be able to go back and complete the next lesson / for homework etc. This is almost a deal breaker for using this program with students.

        Need to be able to edit the data after it has been collected. Need to edit the data itself, not just download and edit a copy.

        I couldn't agree more. The power of Forms is fantastic for quick report outputs and tying to SharePoint etd. But as a creator, if i cannot adjust and need to do so manually each time, it drives me to other survey/form systems like SUrveyMokey. But that clearly takes away for power of quick reporting and Flows. This is a larger advantage so i am 'figuring it out' and doing manual adjustments in Excel/SharePoint. But WOW it seems like a miss for the Form Creator not to be able to adjust responses.

        Please provide us an update! This feature is a future MUST!

        Please sort this feature out - it's so obvious. I can't use the statistics that are produced automatically because I may need to correct or append to teh original form response. I end up having to export the fields to excel, correct them in excel and then create charts from scratch. Such a waste of time.

        Even if the Creator can edit a Response. For Example I created a quick Database in Forms for employees to enter in information for contact list. If I can Edit a response in the FORM and not just the Output to Excel then it would be optimal. This way both the Responder and the Creator can edit the FORM.

        Makes everything work much better.

        +1 on the edit response, but make the edit response possible by the survey creator automatically but yet make it an option for the submitter to edit.

        Need this! If someone mistypes on a registration form, there is no good way to correct it.

        Buenos dias, Nuestra sugerencia o recomendación deacuerdo a la aplicacion forms, es que debria haber una opcion donde el administrador del fomulario pueda editar las respuestas de los usuarios que responden las encuestas.

        Quedamos atentos a una pronta respuesta.

        Gracias

        Agreed - I was able to reproduce one of our main project submission forms in MS Forms, but the originator should have the ability to refine their response(s) as they may not be able to complete a submission in one session or because they receive additional information which impacts the scope fo the project.
