    How to elaborate the Edit Link for existing submissions?

    Asked by Campusjaeger on April 01, 2014 at 11:32 AM

    Any idea where I can access the edit submission links, which are sent out to users once they make a form entry?

    I am asking because sometimes users lose the confirmation emails with those links in them and ask me to give them their individual link.


    Thanks in advance!

    If by accident your form submitter lose the Autoresponder email which included the Edit Link for submissions and if you do not receive that edit link in the Notifier sent to you, then you can manually create it, just follow these steps: 

    1. Use this URL: http://submit.jotform.co/form.php?formID=

    2.  Add to the URL your form ID, the string of number that is at the end of your form URL.

    So, now the URL will be this way: http://submit.jotform.co/form.php?formID=40687123456789

    3. Then add to the URL the this part: &sid=

    So, it becomes this way: http://submit.jotform.co/form.php?formID=40687123456789&sid=

    4. After, that look for the submission of your form users in the Submission page of your form. Once you find it copy the ID and paste it after the URL:

    The URL will become like this: 


    4. Then, add this part to the URL &mode=edit

    And the URL will become this way: http://submit.jotform.co/form.php?formID=40687123456789&sid=12345678900&mode=edit

    Make sure to replace the current form and submission IDs (false ID) by your form ID.

    Finaill you will be able to share the whole URL to your form users so that they can edit their information.

    I hope this helps.

    And replace the green part for the submission ID like my colleague explained.

    Hi, you need to use the same address of your form, change the "www" for "submit" and add the SID & mode part as stated above.

    I see that your form's URL is: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/42315852637962

    So, the edit URL would be: http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formID=42315852637962&sid=288001826641812129&mode=edit

    Please give it a try, and if you have more questions you can post them here.
