    Does JotForm allow customers to edit their entry form on the front end?

    Asked by Dan Hagbeg  on January 15, 2014 at 02:15 PM


    I am looking for a form submission tool to use on my wordpress site that allows customers to edit their previous submissions.  With our current form submission package, we must manually edit customer data from the back end.  This is very tedious for both us and the customer.


    Is there a way for customers to edit their previous form submission and ONLY their previous form submission?  If so, I am intersted in switching over to Jot Form.

    Thank you for contacting us. Yes that is possible to do. After you have setup or created a form, you need to create a Notification(to be received by you) or Autoresponder(to be received on whatever email on from an email field)

    Then edit the Notification or Autoresponder template and add {edit_link} to the message body:


    You should or they should receive this email depending on the email template type after they have completed the submission:


    If you require, further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you
