    Unfortunately, this feature is not possible.

    However, it is possible to attach a PDF copy of the submitted form to an autoresponder for your users. You must enable the feature in your autoresponder like this:


    Then if the user had the right software they could edit this PDF File:

    Do you want to allow your users to edit their form submissions? That is possible. To achieve that you need to add an {edit_link} tag to the body of the Autoresponder email. Inside of this guide you can find how to do it:
