How can I copy the submitted form to a users account and let them edit it?

I would like that if a member submits a form, that a copy will be saved in her/his member separate page. I created another member page in the account which I would like to use to show what she/he has submitted.
In the current situation the user creates on a static page a new rental place, which is the form I am talking about before. Upon submission, the new rental place is created, all data are saved in the database and it will be shown in the property list.
What I wish to achieve is,
(1) Upon submission of the form (new rental space) by the member there shall be a possibility for her/him to edit that new rental space. For example create a copy of the new space to one of her/his account pages and that they can then edit the space in a separate window or so.
(2) An e-mail or so, to send a link to the member with that new rental space she/he created.

I am not good in coding, so if ever it needs to be coded, please let me know what I have to edit to make it work on my site.

Thanks for the help.

Hi nelson,
What you can do is on submitting it you save it to 2 places.
In your database you have a column (owner) this is the user id for the one wo submitted it. It is a hidden column but you can make it visible in the database.
Then you have to make a page with the needed elements (input field, dropdown, etc)
You can make a dataset from the submitted form and connect the proper fields to it.
Make sure to make it read and write.
Also make sure the dataset is filtered (owner equal to current user)
This way they get their submitted form.

Hi Kristof,
Thank you for your reply.
How do I filter a dataset to “owner equal to current user”?
Will I make a edit button to the listed item to get to that other page? Or how do I connect the user to that submitted form?
Thanks for the help.

Could i do this, also allowing for 1 user to make 3 separate dataset entries? each one editable

Sorry for the late response,
if you goto your settings from the sataset you can add a filter.
select in the field “Owner”(text).
the value to compare it with will automaticly change to logged in user.
however if you use a dynamic dataset it won’t work since you can’t change it to “Owner”

Hi Ethan,
you can let 1 user edit multiple datasets.
however if you want to edit 3 of the same data you will have to use code to achieve this.
lets say you have a inputfield,dropdown,checkbox,inputtextfield.
and you want to put the input field in the 3 datasets, the dropdown in dataset1, the checkbox in dataset2, and the inputtextfield in dataset3
then you will have to write code since you cant add the input field to 3 different with just using the editor settings.
if the input field and dropdown goes into dataset1, the checkbox in dataset2 and the inputtextfield into dataset 3 then it is easly done just with the editor by connecting the elements to the right dataset
