    Please see my previous question regarding having a user be able to revise a form choice after submitting a form.  I can locate the form ID as described.  My issue is I have over 900 submission on two forms. Is there automated way to email my form user their own link? 

    Do manually do this is a very time consuming method.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Simply add the edit link in your autoresponder message so new submitters will receive the autoresponder message containing the edit link of their submission. Guide: How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date

    For existing submissions, you need to download your form submissions to excel that includes the submission ID so you can use them for automating your emails. Unfortunately, you will have to use 3rd party apps to achieve that e.g. Mail Merge as our current email newsletter app does not currently convert tags into real values but this is noted for improvements in the future. No ETA yet.
