    How to get a permalink to each submission allowing editing and re-submission

    Asked by IanRm on October 31, 2014 at 06:59 AM

    How? Where? do we get a permalink to each submission? (to enable editing and re-submission)


    is there a widgit or a method to populate a field with the permalink URL to regain access to a submission AFTER it has been submitted (apart from the edit button in submissions)


    We want to grab or autopopulate the unique URL permalink for access from any browser - after submission

    Hi Ian,

    What you would need is to add the {edit_link} into your notification and/or autoresponders which would send you an email with the link to edit the same submission.

    To do that, just go to the email that you would like to set up with this link and click where you would like to have the edit link placed followed by a click on Edit Link on the right.

    That is it. You should now be able to see the link to editing submissions in your email.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
