    Edit link within HTML Report

    Asked by Williamj787 on January 08, 2015 at 02:38 PM

    Can I have an edit link per record within the HTML report for my form?


    I need to be able to edit from that report screen if possible.

    I could not find a way how to add the Edit_Link to the form itself so that you will be able to use it on the HTML Report.

    It was because the Edit_Link is only constructed after submission of the form. The key is the Submission ID# which is only generated upon submission.

    So this is not possible within the current HTML Report.

    BUT I think it is possible if you will use a custom Report and plugin the Edit_Link/Submission ID# using Webhook

    user guide: -How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm

    You can capture the Submission ID# using Webhook and then construct the Edit_Link and put the link in your custom HTML Report

    Example on how to get the Submission ID#

    It can be a bit complex though. But surely doable.

    As of now, you can also just use the current method which is using the Edit Link from the Notifier email or on the View Submissions page.

    Hope this help. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for the reply. I will try the WebHooks path first and go from there.
