    How can this be done after the user submitted form and the autoresponder does not show edit form in the form fields?

    As stated in the guide, you have to add the {edit_link} tag in the body of the autoresponder email. I would suggest trying to see the result. The tag will create a full link that would let people click to edit their submission. 

    You can also add the same tag in the thank you message of the form:

    Since it is a HIPAA form, the only links I see in the Form Fields is form title and submission ID in the autoresponder email.  The other links like the pdf and edit links are gone.  I do have fields that are not protected which I thought would trigger the pdf and edit links to show, but it didn't.  I can add those links in the Thank You page as you showed me.  Do you know how I can get those additional form fields to show up for the autoresponder email?

     

    Thanks for your help.

    Technically, the options are removed as part of being HIPAA compliance. But the Edit Link will still work in the autoresponder email. You only need to have that tag manually added in the email template.

    I mean, you have to add (copy/paste) the {edit-link} tag manually since we have removed that in the autoresponder email options.

    Is there a way to trigger another set or the same set of emails to go out when a form is edited?  Recipients need to be notified of the change.
