Hello All,
I have a few forms that people are indicating that they cannot update.  What are the options or settings that will open up a form for anyone to update, even if they have not created the document.  the problem is someone creates the document bt then no one can update it except the person who created it.
I want to open it up.
Thanks !
Paul

Probably you have authors field in the document.. Run an agent to remove those fields or include a general role in the db acl and append that role to this authors field, and assign the user/group to this role.

Hello Hemanth,
So If I remove the Author field, which I do have in the form, then anyone can update the document once created ??
If I want to lock the update depending upon a certain status then I would use a control section ???

In that case, Authors field setting isn't helpful. It prevents editing at document level. Yes, you may look at Controlled access section.
