Would It be possible that a user can fill out a survey that takes information that have been already sent from another user in another survey?
Let say that a manager send a a survey with a purchase order. That information will have to be used by another worker who has the job of verify that everything has been bought correctly and he will have to send the invoices through another survey.
In addition, both surveys would be linked by an unique ID that every purchase order would have. Like that he would not need to write again all the list of materials that has been sent by the manager and the different fields that both surveys would have in common could be linked by the ID.
It would be something like the inbox functionality but between different surveys.
Thank you for your help.
Yes, this is possible. Generally, I would go about doing this by creating a form for each stage of the process; stages after the first would use the Inbox functionality to edit the existing data (or use the ?mode=edit URL parameter if working with the web form). A couple of resources;

Thank you for your answer.
I've seen the links you've sent me, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for.
Using this methodology it is possible to receive information from another Survey, however when the information is modified, it is modified in the database of both surveys, not only in the second survey.
Is there a way to add a constraint so that it does not modify the survey data from where the data is being obtained?
Also, I would like that in the database of the second survey only the data appear as they are modified, not that they appear automatically as they are sent from the first survey. Would It be possible?
Thank you in advance.
