Is it possible to show the edit link on the form itself.

    Hi,

    On form 52745887899988 I want to have a field that displays the edit link, is this possible.

    As I have indicated before the submitter usually has to go back and enter the approved date some time later.

    I have added a print button to the form and wanted the printed version to display the edit form link. 

    Thank you,

    Robert

    I think would be possible to display the edit links of all your submissions, you would only need to create a report, there are some of them that display the submissions data and display the edit links, please take a  look on the following links in order to get more information about reports: https://www.jotform.com/help/326-How-To-Create-Form-Reports-in-JotForm 

    You will be also able to embed the report on your form using the iFrame widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/iframe_embed 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I posted a reply on Saturday but it didn't get here ??

    After looking at reports i don't see any selection for Edit Link. When I think about it I don't think the edit link url is created until after the submit button is pressed so this may not be possible.

    Regards,

    Robert

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find your reply in the email logs, may be that it did not come through due to any temporary connection error. 

    Now, regarding to your question, yes, the edit link is created after the submit button is clicked, there is not a way to generate the link before to send the submission, but using a report you could display all the submissions as well as their edit links, for example, you may create a Table Listing Report and check the option to display the edit links.

    You could also display the edit link right after the submission, using the thank you page feature:

    Hello Kevin,

    I see what your showing me now. thank you. Don't know how I missed it.

    And I can add it to the thank you page. I will use that for sure.

    Obvious I can't get on the print form, it hasn't been created yet. 

    Thank you,

    Robert
