    How to let users edit their submission?

    Asked by Jasmin  on June 27, 2017 at 08:51 AM



    I am looking at your site to pass onto a client as they want to receive feedback from their employees.

    However, they want to be able to edit and amend any survey they have continuously. 

    Are you able to do this with your platform?


    Thanks, Jasmin

    Do you want to allow the employees to edit their submissions? If that is correct, you just need to create an autoresponder, and include the edit link, so they can edit their submission: https://www.jotform.com/help/26-Setting-Up-an-Autoresponder-Email

    Hey Jasmin - Your users/respondents/clients/customers can not edit the questions, only you as the form owner can do that. The only thing they can do is edit their submission data (or the answers they filled out on your form) and that can be achieved using the EDIT LINK suggested by BDavid.

    You may also refer to the detailed guide I'm linking below. You can place the EDIT LINK either on your Autoresponder Template or on your Thank You Page.
