You can compare the current organizer with the previous organizers and copy answers or download files from them. To do so, click on the Compare answers link to the top right and select any previous organizer from the dropdown with the organizer names.
You will see the current organizer on the left and the previous organizer on the right. There you can:

All changes are automatically saved. You can close the organizer and resume answering questions later or from a different computer without losing a thing. Edit the organizer as you see fit. Once you’re done, look it over in read-only mode by clicking Back to view mode at the top of the page.
Submitting Organizers for Clients
There are several ways to submit an organizer, whether it’s fully completed or not:
- Select Submit organizer to move a job with a linked organizer to the next stage.

You may need to unsubmit an organizer: For instance, you need additional information from a client or you accidentally submitted it.
