    In my application I have added an option to Save where a notification gets sent to the applicant with an edit link. Previously each time an applicant would edit the form it would appear in our database as a new application and we would thus print the latest submissions by date. However recently an applicant who edits the application through the link a new submission is not recieved in fact it gets eddited in the old application. This prevents us from knowing if any changes have been made to an old application say submitted in January - an application that is probably gone through the screening process.

    My Jotform application form is :

    Waiting for a reply 

    Thanks

    Edit link cannot be used to post new submissions. It can only be used to edit an existing link. Previously, we had a bug and it seems that you were using that bug to pre-populate your forms. Since we fixed the bug, you cannot use it that way any more.

    You should probably use the pre-populate feature from now on.
