    May I ask you for some explanation of your aim? Do you want to update/edit a task on Asana which is created by using JotForm previously?

    I have created a Form 1 in Jot.

    I have given it a unique ID so that each time its filled in it gets a unique URL. The form then also has a link to Form 2.

    This then is emailed from Jot to the Agent.

    From their email, they press link to Form 2 and fill it in.  It also has a unique URL.  I am trying to get Asana to accept this URL in the task it creates so that the agent can return to the form (2) and update the information, via that jot form link, from Asana.

    If you want to update the information in a specific Asana task, unfortunately, that cannot be done. You can only create new tasks in Asana from a JotForm Submission.

    If you want to include the Edit URL for a specific submission in the newly created Asana task, you can do that by sending an email to create an asana task and make sure you include the Edit Link in the Email Body. This way, you can find the Edit Link for that Submission in the Asana task.
