Re-using Update Request Links

09/04/16 Edited 12/09/19

Is there a way to re-use an Update Request link? For example, if I opened an update request and I am not ready to post a response, is there a way to open the Update Request again? The Update Request link is a one-time only link right? Is there a way to work around that? Thank you

  • Hi Carlo..the update request is used only once.  It sounds like a web form might be a better solution for you instead or just send a new update request.

    Add my vote to reusable Update Requests / recurring Update Requests.


    Tony, the native WebForm won't work for this use case because it doesn't allow updates of existing rows.

    Add my vote, too.  I have had this request multiple times in my company.

    Yes a form, but a form  that acts like a form to that specific row...an update request that acts like a form.  Even better, be able to set expiration deadlines on that specific row form. You guys have made a lot of improvements with a lot of features and there is still much more that can be made even better.

  • The one time link is not working, we need the NOTIFICATION or UPDATE REQUEST to stay active until the person has completed the task which often takes more than one update.

    It would be immensely useful to allow a user to make multiple updates to one row, without updating the entire sheet.

    Any updates on this solution? This would be immensely helpful!
