Is there any way to update/add comments to submitted smartsheet form?

edited 07/25/22 in Smartsheet Basics


I created a smartsheet form to gather data from various users throughout my organization and it gets added to our intake sheet. However, there are few occurrences where the data is inaccurate or incomplete. In such scenarios, rather than asking them to resubmit the new form and deleting the old entry in the Intake sheet manually, I would like to find if there is any workaround to make the old form available to users to update it directly.

I cannot share the Intake sheet as it contains some confidential data too. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    How about creating an Automation with a Request an Update when specific fields are left blank?

    Hi @Friend1234

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to Mike's excellent advice/answer.

    Here are other options that could filter what the users could see, so they would only see their submissions and the columns/information that isn't confidential.

    • Premium App, Dynamic View
    • Premium App, WorkApps

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
