    Hi is there anyway that a user can remove their own submission entirely using the 'edit link' option? Let's say somebody signs up for an event and can now no longer attend and needs to remove their attendance, for example?


    Thanks

    Unfortunately there is no way for users to delete their submission.

    However, as a workaround they could reset all values on a submitted form with an edit link.

    You just add a radio button (Delete data: yes/no) and a condition that hides all fields. And in your form settings you need to enable "clear fields when hidden".

    Here's a demo of this:

    Also as an alternative its possible to share your submission page. It will be password protected and allow the user to delete their submission:
