I have created a form with two sections. One department will be filling out the first section after which another department will be filling out the second section.

I have used the @Author (computed when composed) in the first section.

How can I see who edits the second section without affecting the Author field in the first section.

Create two roles and assign each section a role. Any user with that roles enabled will able to edit the sections respectively.

fneale,

1. Author fields are at the document level of security and work for document-as-a-whole. They cannot be used at section level or field level.
2. You have mentioned that the author field is computed when composed. The value will only be calculated at teh time of document creation and will not change at any other time.

On the other hand if you want to keep track of who edited a document, use a combination of @username and @isdocbeingsaved in a computed field.
