    I'm not sure if I understood your concern correctly. Do you want to manually change or define the Submission ID so that you can easily identify and re-arrange your list?

    I'm guessing that what you like to do is monitor every edits that was made in a specific submission by a user. Unfortunately, this is not the case, what the edit_link does is that it updates that specific submissions, meaning the previous values on it will be tampered and no record will stay, submission ID will remain the same.


    Green highlight: the form url used in edit mode.

    Pink highlight: the Form ID

    Blue highlight: the Submission ID generated automatically per unique submission.


    I believe you cannot edit the Submission ID because this is something unique in our system that is used to identify each of your submissions. Rather than using the Submission ID, you can just used the widget Unique ID, this will let you have a field in your form having an ID with your own format.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if I pointed out a different topic.

    Thank you.

    I'm sorry that I couldn't get your message. Do you mean to have the edit link with Unique ID instead of submission ID?  If so, it is not possible to edit the submission without the submission ID in the URL since this is unique to every submission and each submission is identified with it only. 

    If you mean to ask something different, please provide us with more information so that we can guide you in the right direction.
