Some help needed on basic stuff
#1
hi, a beginner to this application here.


would like to know is it possible, that when we log in to an account to view submissions, the number that is beside the view link will only show the number of new submissions that i have not viewed.


thanks for any help in advance!!

Hi Byesleep,

Welcome to the forums!

This request has come up a few times but I'm afraid it's not available yet. Here's a question, though: how do you picture it working in a multi-user environment? Since multiple users may log in to see the same information, should it get marked as "read" (or whatever) after ANY user has looked at it, or only one?

erm for it to work in my multi user environment , your idea of any user marking it as read would work perfectly fine.

or an option that the administrator can choose to let all users have the power to mark a submission as read or selected users he choose to empower

p.s Thanks for this great thing you came up with. it helped me out tremendously

No problem! :-)

Here's a workaround, in case you're interested. Add a field called "Reviewed" in the Form Tools database (done through the Edit Form -> Database tab). Set that to a radio button field with two options "Yes" and "No". Then add that new field to your View - preferably as a "Column" so it will show up on the main submission listing page. At this point, when people log in, they'll see a column indicating whether the submission has been reviewed. Anyone could then edit that field to set it to "Yes" once they've read it.

Not ideal, but a workaround!

All the best -
