Hello All,

I have some fields in my database that are mandatory at different stage.
I want to do a form with the first fields for the first time, and then send another form prefill and update the record.
I do not see how to update. Is there a way to do it ?
thanks

Hi @Alexandre_Husset

A new filled in form always creates a new record. So without some extra actions, u can’t use a (second) form to update an existing record.

You could try to receive the input of the second form in a different table and then use AT automations to update the original record (eg by selecting that (linked) record in your form). Just a thought.

hello,
thanks for your answer that’s what I did but I thought that there was maybe another solution.
