Why wouldn't you just use the WordPress ID? Or are you not allowing people to have WordPress IDs?

everybody can make a report on this portal. so WP ID doesnt required.

This is pretty standard functionality with a form, a view, and the ability to edit an entry with a pro license. It may not be exactly as you say it, but it's a pretty common feature to have a form, collect data, present the data and allow the ability to click an individual piece of data and edit it.

exactly and understood the ability of pro functions. now, how to make filter the initial reports, so then, the only genuine initial submitter can continue to make a full reports on the resolution issues. i believe its inappropriate if everybody can see the table data of the reports. im thinking, by providing an email and report id which generated earlier only can redirect to the correct form

I tend to rely on a token and/or password protect the content.

Password protect content: https://wordpress.org/plugins/password-protect-page/ (Use a form to capture a password and then nest that password field into the shortcode on the page where the editable form will exist)

Token idea: https://www.techmavenconsulting.com/2022/06/22/formidable-pro-secure-data/

Allow "logged out" editing: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_user_can_edit/#kb-allow-logged-out-users-to-edit-entries

Are you able to share the form publicly via URL for troubleshooting purposes? You can email me at [email protected] if you'd like to keep this private.
