    E-mail form field for "Edit Submission"

    Asked by altpress2014 on February 02, 2017 at 02:25 PM

    Hi - I'm wondering if there is a way to customize the wording that appears in an email when we use the "Edit link" form field.


    At the moment, when we use the "Edit Link" form field, the text that appears in the email notification is: Edit Submission


    Is there a way for us customize that to say something else?

    That is not possible. You can't edit the text of the Edit Link form field. However, there's a workaround how to change it. Here's a guide:

    1. You need to use the edit link below. Please take note that you need the form ID here. Here's an example:


    You can find the form ID in the form's direct link. Here's an example:

    https://form.jotform.com/70325557365964 - the orange highlight is an example of a form ID.

    2. In the Email Editor, highlight the text and then click the "Insert/Edit Link" icon. Paste the link in the URL field and then change the Text to display to your preference.

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, please contact us again.
