    I really like the functionality of the Visual Report in that I can filter the information.  But I also need to be able to edit the submission from the report.  Grid format and HTML report both allow me to edit submissions, but I can't filter from these reports.  Is there a way to have both?  For example would it be possible to put an edit submission link as a hidden field within the actual submission, and so I could present that field within the grid on the Visual Report

    Sadly, there's no way to include the EDIT SUBMISSION link in the Visual Report builder. Your idea will also be not plausible (put an edit submission link as a hidden field) because the Submission ID only gets generated after form submission.

    This means you won't be able to fetch/get any Submission IDs that you can place within the form that you're hoping to use within the grid on the Visual Report.

    In case you're not aware, you can share the Visual Report using an iFrame. With this in mind, if I'm in your shoes, I would probably set up a page on my website where I will embed the iFrame codes of my Visual Report, and at the same time, use the iFrame codes of the Grid / Table report.

    The result? I have both reports consolidated on a single page - A visual report, and a grid/table report which has the edit submission links.
