    Thank you. Is there a way to send back the form for editing after it has been submitted without having an autoresponder with a link in it?

    I don't want forms to be changed at the submitter's discretion after they are submitted but do want to be able to request answers be edited for clarification or extra detail.

    Would it be possible to include the {edit link} in an email to me so that I can forward to the submitter at a future time if I need to ask them to update their form?  Or, can I pick up the link for a submitted form and send it pasted in an email?

    @shearmanos 

    You can put the edit link in your thank you page if you don't like it on autoresponder email.

    Just add {edit_link} variable in your Custom Thank you message.

    Yes, just add {edit_link} variable in your form notification. Go to Setup & Embed > Email Alerts and open Notification.
