    Hi,


    While the original issue for this post has been resolved,  I have another issue which I think pretty much the same as the one in this URL: https://www.jotform.com/answers/462462-Edit-link-on-embedded-form

    That is, I wonder is it possible to have the edited link embed on my site ?


    The answer for this topic was posted many years ago, so first I'm not sure if it's updated or have a better way to work on it ?

    And another thing is, I'm using two forms combined, where the second form gets pre-populated data from the first one, based on your suggestion above.

    First form:  https://www.jotform.com/build/193600715870458

    Second form: https://www.jotform.com/build/201568522756460

    So this probably makes thing get complicated for have edit link embed in the form ?

    But if possible, I'd like users to work from my site, not a third party URL. 

    Your help would be very helpful.

    Many thanks.

    I'm not sure if this is possible, but in order for this to work, you need to send the submission ID on your webpage as instructed by my previous colleague in the support ticket you mentioned.

    By the way, to which form do you want to get the submission ID or edit the link? The first form or the second form?

    You may need to hire a web developer or freelance for this so they can work on your requirements.

    Thanks for the advise. 

    I think the first form would need to get the submission ID, as the second form will be redirected to, once users submit the first one.

    And indeed, I think I would need a developer who can help with making php script that will capture the values of form ID and submission ID via URL.  

    Thanks again.

    Well, it is possible to send or pass the submission ID and edit submission link to the second form. But, we can only display the URL in form 2.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance. As long as your requirement is within our scope, we will be happy to help :)

    Hi,

    thanks for the getting back.

    I don't quite understand this line:  Well, it is possible to send or pass the submission ID and edit submission link to the second form. But, we can only display the URL in form 2.

    My understanding is we only need to embed this form with an iFrame for the form #1, but as the edit link is user-specific, we need to make the embedded page a dynamic URL ? (And that's why we need a custom php script ?)

    And we should need only to do it with form #1, because once submitted it will be redirected to form #2, presenting in the same page ?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the confusion, it's just an addition to my first response to this ticket. Your understanding is correct, you need a PHP script to get the submission ID from form 1 and display the editable form as mentioned by my colleague here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/462462
