    The next button can be indeed replaced by a submit button, but it will not serve as a next button anymore. We may find a workaround on this, but may you please provide us more details about what you would like to achieve? 

    We will be happy to assist. 

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thank you for the additional details.

    I think this can be possible with some conditions, here are the steps that I think may help you: 

    1. Add a submit button right before the current page break buttons on the first page, you will be showing up this submit button to the user instead of the next one:

    2. You will need to add the get form page URL widget to the form in order to know when the user is filling out the form and when you're editing the submission.

    Widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_form_page_url 

    Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-Your-Form 

    3. You will need to add the following condition: 

    1523371845screenshot_02.png

    4. Finally, you need to add a field that will work to trigger a notification to let the submitter know that you already reviewed their submission, this field should be hidden and it will only be visible to you when you're editing the submission: 

    1523371865screenshot_01.png

    This guide will help you conditionally sending the emails, for autoresponder emails you need to go to the advanced tab and turn on the send on edit option, the email will only be sent if the condition is  met: https://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-Send-Email-Based-on-User-s-Answer 

    Now, when the users open the edit link they will be able to move through the form pages without any problem, but on the first submission when they are initially filling out the form they will only be able to fill the first page and submit the form. 

    For calculations you may refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget 

    I hope this helps.

    Ok, my testing form is here: https://form.jotform.com/80994368054972 

    The user will fill out the first page and will click on the next button which is actually a submit button, that will actually submit the form and you will receive the notification to review the information filled out. Then when the users receive the edit link of their submission they will see on the first page the page break as the submit button will be hidden. 

    To better understand, please fill out my testing form and see how the submission is sent, on the thank you page you will see the edit link which is the same your users will be getting when you approve the submission filling the hidden field, see how on the edit link the submit button on the first page is replaced with the page break and the user can move to the second page. 

    This will give you the ability to review the calculations before the user. 

    Now, it's not possible to have both functionalities on the same button, it must be either page break or submit, but it cannot be both. 

    A workaround is to keep the form with  the suggested configuration above and just change the thank you page redirecting to this URL: https://jotform.com/edit/{id}

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Kevin, I am unable to view my TQ page with the edit link. Where shld I place my Get URL link widget ? 

    Can you help to override and check my settings ? I do not need the review section.

    The Get URL widget you can place anywhere in the form, there isn't any special place.

    I checked your form but I don't see that widget present there?

    Hello there,

    Looks like you have disabled the condition which enables this workaround.
