    I'm using a form embedded in a sqarespace page and I'd love to be able to send users to edit submissions in the iframe. The page is here https://www.anguslloyd.com/summer2018 and here's an example submission https://www.jotform.com/edit/3956556570524073336. In looking though other similar posts, I see people are recommended to use something like  http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formid=80585502710250&sid=3956556570524073336&mode=edit for the frame, but I can't firgure out how to pass the sid variable to the iframe in squarespace. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    The SID variable is your submission ID and you can replace the "src" in your square space with your submission URL.

    src= "http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formid=80585502710250&sid=3956556570524073336&mode=edit"

    Hope this information helps.

    Please note that the edit submission link and its parameters work only with http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php? so that you'll be able to edit the submission on the web page. Also, the parameters cannot be sent to the form using this URL. So, it is required to have the direct edit link to embed on the web page as mentioned by our colleague in the previous post. This may not work since there will be different submissions to be edited by different users. You might need to write a custom script on the web page to call the submission ID in the URL separately. If you are not a programmer, you may hire one from Upwork website.

    Thank you!
