    I did not find the fields you mentioned on the form in your account. I have also created a testing form for this and I can see the value conditionally inserted is showing up fine even on the edit link. 

    Please test my form here: https://form.jotform.com/72924720788972 

    Also, please note that it's not possible to keep the conditionally inserted value, if the answer is changed the value will be changed as well.

    Ok, I have created a sample form to test the points 1, 2 and 3. The form seems to work and values are retained even on the edit link, a sample form can be seen here: https://form.jotform.com/72925305288967 

    However, I'm not sure if I can understand your requirement for your point "4. record somewhere Marcello Brazil (here it is the problem, I cant record it)". Where do you want to record the full name? 

    Please note that the name is already recorded in the fields "Name" and "Last Name", it's also being saved in the calculation. Here is an edit link that you can see: https://www.jotform.com/edit/3843282384139097683 

    Please provide us a bit more about what you're referring to with your fourth point, if you may provide us with the form you're working on then that would be helpful. 

    We will be happy to help.

    I think you will need to create two sets of fields so the first set value is preserved on edit mode.

    You can check this sample edit link and see if this fits your requirement: https://www.jotform.com/edit/3843299430318657608. You can also check this sample form: https://form.jotform.com/72925353260960. Please note that set 2 fields is only displayed on the edit link.

    NICE, and for time? How can I do it?

    example:
    Name will be TIME (this need to be automactilly when the user send the form)
    Name 2 will be TIME² (when the user submit in the edit link)

    I cant record the second TIME² it remains like the TIME, do you know why?

    Do you mean you want to record the time when the form was submitted using the Edit Link? Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. When you add a datetime field in your form and set it to current date and time by default when the form is submitted this will be recorded. So when the form is loaded using the edit link the field will be populated with the same value as it was first submitted.
