Update Request single use link
Does anyone know if there is a way to allow a recipient of a "Send update request" to use the same link more htan once to update a particular row?
An installation within my organization is a single day event but can span the entire day. I may need multiple check-ins from my field tech.
Today, I send an update request to my field tech and when he replies that he's "on site" the link is no longer valid and I have to creat a new "send update request" for the same task on the same day.
I know I can create and schedule mutliple requests for a time and date (e.g. on 12/17 @ 9am, 12pm and 3pm) but this is highly inefficient to create for hundreds of installations that I'm tracking.
If the request could be set to expire after a certain time as opposed a single use this would enable mutlpie updates to be made throughout the day without the need to set up multiple requests. There is a built in cell history so changes would still be versioned (while not a reportable field) I still have the abitlity to see if there were mutliple changes. Additionally, I get an email when an update request is exectued so I would have the email history of the changes too. so revision control is not really a concern.
