    After you have a form submitted, if it needs changes or updates by the user who submitted it can you send it back for updates or can only the JOT FOrm user make the changes on the Jot Form site?

    You can enable submission editing in your notification or autoresponder so that your users can edit submissions at a later date.

    Great, thank you.  I had added the edit link to my auto-responder for future use.  Is there still no way to re-send the auto-response or otherwise send the edit link automatically?  Is the only way to manually build it for each response using the form and submission IDs?

    If you have a few responses to get edited it would be nice not to have to recreate the links manually.

    Actually, you can manually generate edit link by getting the submission ID of the submission you want your user to update and then create URL like this: https://www.jotform.com/edit/submissionIDhere

    Is there still no way to re-send the auto-response or otherwise send the edit link automatically?

    The guide I gave you before will automatically be sent with the autoresponder so they just need to access the edit link via their email at any time.
