    Field Multiplier Widget: Not possible to edit submitted answers in submission edit mode

    Asked by VCE on September 24, 2014 at 10:10 AM

    I am using the field multiplier widget but if I include an edit button in the email notification the information is not retained. I guess this is because the widget does not create an Input ID? How can this be fixed please?

    I just wanted to confirm if I understood everything properly.

    You have a link to edit the submission in the email that if the users use they do not see all of the data, only the data that was not dynamically added to the jotform?

    Or are they not able to see any field values that they have previously entered?

    Best Regards,

    They can see all other data. The missing data is from the dynamic field multiplier widget
