    How can I route the the edit submission link to the page where the form is embedded ?

    Asked by egil500 on January 31, 2014 at 05:26 PM

    I have embeded a form to this site  http://www.fregeas.info/avtaleutkast  ... when user submitt the form,  a edit link is sendt,  and the user have to forward the submission link to another user who will use this link to access the form and contribute to update the the form.. But the problem is that the users that follow the submission link is routed to a jotform page and not the page where the form have been embeded. 


    Another problem is that the signature functionality do not work when the form is opened outside an embeded page.. do you have a fix for these two problems ?

    Thankyou but this was not what I was asking for. The question was a situation where the client have started to fill out a form and  submitt it... when the client later follow the edit submission link recived in the autoresponder email to continue to fill out the form the user is routed to a  a jotform page and not to miy site where the form have been embeded. I need a workaround for this so the user get back to my site when he 3 days after continue to fill out the form with clicking on the submission link... the thankyou page option is not a option for this.

    To clarify, the Edit Link is exactly just a URL 'link' of the form, so if you click on the link, it will open the form itself.

    From what I understand, that you wanted to do is, to embed the for Edit form, not just using its link.

    You can try the embedding the edit link within an iframe -- this way, the form will be display already on the form.

    An iframe code like this

    <iframe src="http://submit.jotform.me/form.php?formID=40303035280439&amp;sid=257082184321937004&amp;mode=edit" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:542px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Noticed that the src is the Edit Link.
    The problem with this is, it will not be able to dynamically assign the submission id. The sid(submission id) in edit link is actually the current submission.
    If you do the iframe embed I suggested, it will be static and the for edit form will always be stuck on the sid indicated in that src URL
    You can test submit this form http://form.jotform.me/form/40303035280439? . I have embedded the edit link in the Thank You page. You will notice that the embedded form does not change.
    To summarize, there is no means to embed yet an edit link of the form. You can only provide the URL link to allow proper editing.
    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
