    Kindly note that in order to make respondents able to edit their submissions, you have to include the Edit Link in the Email Template.

    If you happen to have respondents who received emails that didn't have the Edit Link, but you still need them to edit their submission, you will have to provide them with the Edit Link manually as shown below.

    Edit Link example:

    I hope I have been of any help.
