    I have gone through the steps in the User Guide to allow the user to review their answers and, if needed, go back and edit their responses. However:

    Question One: It seems that the form is being sent (I receive an email instantly) when I hit the button immediately prior to reviewing my entries. Is there a way to have the form to submit ONLY when I hit the "Complete Submission" button on my "Review your order" page?

    Question Two: When I do hit the "Edit Entries" button it takes me here:
    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com/form.php?formID=32728068930156&amp;sid={id}&amp;mode=edit"><button>Edit Entries</button></a>

    How do I get them back to my form so they can edit their entries?

    Thanks, I have included the url where my form resides below.

    Hello, 

    Question One: It seems that the form is being sent (I receive an email instantly) when I hit the button immediately prior to reviewing my entries. Is there a way to have the form to submit ONLY when I hit the "Complete Submission" button on my "Review your order" page?

    Unfortunately the function to review entries is workaround, and part of that workaround will cause the form to be submitted twice. One for the intial submission and a second time once they have reviewed the form. 

    Question Two: When I do hit the "Edit Entries" button it takes me here:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com/form.php?formID=32728068930156&amp;sid={id}&amp;mode=edit"><button>Edit Entries</button></a>

    How do I get them back to my form so they can edit their entries?

    For the user to be able to go into edit mode on their submission id. You must first add the 

    <br /><a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com/form.php?formID=12345678901&sid={id}&mode=edit"><button>Edit Entries</button></a><span style="padding-left: 14px;"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.example.com" rel="nofollow noopener"><button>Complete Submission</button></a></span>

    code to your thank you page. The Edit Entries button will get the user back to the form with his original entries autopopulated.

    If you need further support, do let us know. Thank you.
