    How to find "edit_link" information?

    Asked by Mike Newnham on March 06, 2014 at 01:00 PM

    I frequently have users contacting me to revise their submission but they have lost their edit link. How can I find the edit link for a submission?

    Thanks. I have already read this article. What it does not identify is where I can find the edit_link for each submission so I can manually send it to people who have deleted their confirmation email with embedded edit_link.

    We do not store such links, so that you will need to re-create them manually.

    In order to get the edit link for particular submission, please find out submission ID in question:

    Then, use that ID instead of {submissiond_id} on the following link:

    http://submit.jotform.ca/form.php?formID=21216778823256&sid={submissiond_id}&mode=edit

    For example, if submission ID is 259947167052219876, the edit link will be:

    http://submit.jotform.ca/form.php?formID=21216778823256&sid=259947167052219876&mode=edit

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
