Displaying last edit Date and User

What is the general goal of the feature?
To be able to see who edited the document, and when.

What are the most likely user stories for how and when this would be used by someone on your team?
I have several users with ability to edit submissions, and when there needs to be update in a previously saved submission, I want to know if the form is edited, and by whom and when. This way I can separate the work load accordingly. And we can check if submitted form is edited or not.

Can you sketch out graphically how you think this should look/work in practice?
Imagine adding 2 additional columns to the Data > Table section, after “submitted_by” which can be named “edited_by” holds user name data, “edit_time” (name can be changed) which holds well, time of edit.

How useful would this feature be to other users or organizations?
To check if the submission is edited or not.
To check if the user who can edit made his/her job or not.
Etc.

What can you contribute to making this feature a reality?
I can beta test? By editing a lot? :slight_smile: sorry not much really.

Thank you for providing the suggestion.
