    PDF Report: Ability to include the edit link in PDF report.

    Asked by scfdfirechief on May 22, 2017 at 09:40 PM

    I would like for a {edit link} to be included with the pdf that is submitted to the receiver.  This will allow pdf files to be saved and can be edited later when clicking the link on the pdf.  Is this possible?

     

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to include the edit link in the PDF report, you can only get the submission ID displayed and your could instruct your users to use this submission ID and replace it with the following link that will allow them to edit the submission: 

    www.jotform.com/edit/submissionID

    At the moment you can only include the edit link in the email notification. 

    Also, do note that editing the submission will not update the already downloaded PDF report, you will need to download the PDF report again in order to get the updated submitted information. 

    I will also open a feature request for this, although we cannot provide an ETA, we  will let you know as soon as we receive any update about it.
