Lock a submission

Locking a submission will prevent any further updates from being made to a webform, making the collected webform data read only. If you do not choose to lock a submission, the associated Workflow link will remain live and data will continue to be editable.

You can also automatically lock Workflow submissions from being changed and automatically lock a Workflow from accepting new submissions based on a chosen time frame.
