NOT saving users email address on edit (pencil)

Is there a way to avoid grabbing a users email upon edit submission (done button) if fields are not set to required (enabling the “done” button) and an edit was NOT actually made?

Using a form button will not work for this application as it’s a statewide crowdsource and need to avoid vlookup at all costs.

Would it be better to accept edits using a form button instead? I understand what your problem is, but currently, what happens if you make a valid edit, and then a couple minutes later I make another valid edit to the same record. I would think that I would be taking the credit away from you because now my email address in in the record. This is irregardless if it’s a valid edit or not. That’s why I think a form button would be better. From there, I don’t know if it would be better to use a series of vlookups to find and update data or use zapier or scripting to take the last form submission and update the existing record.

That’s exactly where I’m stuck… may have to end up removing the gamification from edits and only apply it upon new listings, shared photos, and donations… I want to avoid vlookup on a statewide open source as much as possible!

Wondering why this post and another we’re flagged as spam by the community?

hmm, not sure. I didn’t see anything wrong with your posts. Unless someone is fat fingering the flag button by accident, but seems odd that it happened in a couple of your posts.
