    How to let the users update their responses at later ?

    Asked by Princess_B on May 09, 2017 at 10:07 AM

    I am creating a JotForm that is used a scoring template for applications, but some users would like the option of going back to modify their responses after they have submitted them.  Is this an available option?  And if so, how can I set up the JotForm to allow the user to edit their previously submitted responses?

    Thank you in advance for your response!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can now let users update an entry on a later date. To do so, first create an auto-responder e-mail on your form. Then add an {edit_link} tag to your autoresponder e-mail. Please follow these steps:

    1. Go to Settings > Emails then select your Autoresponder e-mail and click "Edit" button.


    2. Add the {edit_link} tag to your e-mail body and click "save" button for saving the changes.
