    Is it at all possible to give the ability to the form submitter to delete their own submission sometimes in the future? I understand they can get a link which enables them to edit the form contents at a later time. But what I am thinking about is a button somewhere on the form that gives the form filler / submitter the ability to delete the entire submission in one fell swoop :o) Is there such feature available?

    If you assign the form to any user and they are filling the form via the Jotform mobile app then they have the ability to delete their submission.


    While assigning you have to make sure that you give them editing access to your form:

    Thanks Roneet. So what you are saying is this deletion capability is available ONLY in the context of mobile forms via the app and not let's say... via the web browser / regular web forms?

    When the form is assigned to another user using Jotform mobile app, they will be able to view the form and submit it. When they sign in to account in website the assigned form will be visible to them under "All Assigned Forms" folder. Please check the screenshot below:
