    Currently users are able to click on the menu button with three dots at the top of a form that has been inserted into a Jotform app and view their submissions. However, the only options users currently have is to download the PDF of their submissions. Could we add an option for users to edit their submissions here as well?

    I would like for users to have the ability to easily edit their submissions, and as far as I can see the only option right now for that is to share the submission table for a form with the user. This is not ideal since they can see all submissions.

    Hi @mlandavazo,

    Each user can easily edit their submissions.

    I can see that you have setup autoresponder email. You can add the Edit Submission link to the Autoresponder to let users edit their submission at later date.

    You can go to Edit Autoresponder Email, Click on form fields and add the Edit Link.

    Please check following screenshot.

    I hope it helps.

    Thank you! This will definitely work for us, but I think adding an option to edit your submissions from within a Jotform app would be really convenient!

    Hi @mlandavazo,

    Thank you for contacting us again.

    As you mentioned you wanted to allow user to edit submission, you can check out assigning the form to a user, then set the permission so they can be able to Submit and Edit Later:

    Guide: What is the assignee Sent box

    I hope it helps.
