    Can I put a link on a website for a form to be edited?

    Asked by wwrw on April 25, 2011 at 06:06 PM

    We have been using Jotform as a reporting system for our employees.  A few of the forms are for annual inspections/maintenance reporting.  If I use the link sent with the {edit_link} in an email, and embed this into our employee site, can they click on the link and edit the form when they need to?  I imagine each year I would have to change that link to a fresh form?  Is this making any sense?

    Hello wwrw

    Since each edit link is unique, I think what you would need to do is create a single page containing a grid with employee names and edit links. In other words, put each employee\'s link next to their name. The only problem is, how would you ensure that none of the employees click the wrong link?

    Hi,

    In addition to what abajan has posted, edit links' shelf life is as good as that of the submission. That means the edit links will work  as long as the submission is in our server, and is not deleted by the account owner.

    Hope this helps.
