    Inserting an Edit Link in the notification

    Asked by LisaFraleyLegalCoach on May 11, 2017 at 03:56 PM

    Hi there - 

    I am trying to understand how to create an editable link in the email notification. You referenced that is can be done in the article on editing the forms at a later date.

    Can you please walk me through how to do it?

    You can easily add an "Edit Link" in the emails wizard. Here's how:

    1. Click "Settings" in the top menu and then go to "Emails" section. Select the notification/autoresponder and then click the "Edit" icon.

    2. After that, go to the "Email Content" and click the "Form Fields" dropdown. Select the "Edit Link" option. This will automatically generate the {edit_link} tag.

    3. Click the "Save" button when you're done.
