Hoe creëer ik een edit submission link voor een participant van een van onze formulieren

    Ik wil graag edit links van een formulier kunnen maken, zodat ik deze naar mensen door kan sturen om een al deels ingevuld formulier aan te passen en af te maken. Ik zie verschillende posts van medewerkers van jullie uit 2017 dat je gewoon de submission id achter een standaard link kunt plakken, maar volgens mij werkt dit op dit moment niet meer.

    Graag hoor ik hoe ik dit voor elkaar krijg!

    Met vriendelijke groet,

    You can add the edit link to the Autoresponder or Notifications email from the form builder. Please see the screenshot for the steps.

    Hi Rose,

    Thanks for your fast response. When I click on the form fields I only see 3 options I can add, that do not include the edit link. Is it possible that it has something to do with the fact that our form contains PHI questions (personal health info)? And if so, is there another way to do this?

    Thanks in advance

    If your account and forms are HIPAA-compliant, I'm afraid the edit link would not be available since HIPAA-enabled accounts come with a stricter access policy. Only the form owner could edit the form submissions.

    The possible workaround I could think of about this is to create another Jotform account(Free) that is not HIPAA compliant and clone the original form there. How to Clone an Existing Form From a URL

    You can then provide the link for the cloned form to your users so whenever they want to edit their submission, they can just fill out and submit the cloned form so you could edit their submissions from the original form.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
