Using a word other than "edit_link" for the edit_link

    I understand how to let users update an entry on a later date as described at When you add the {edit_link} tag to the body of the email, is there a way to make it list words other than “edit link”.  I want the sentence to read, “You can change your response by clicking here” and have the word “here” hyperlinked to the edit link.  How would I do that?

    Yes, you can do that by adding text and then creating {edit_link} through the Add link option in the toolbar.

    When I say creating {edit_link} I mean placing a code like this one through the HTML option in the toolbar:

    <a target="_blank" href="{id}&mode=edit">Edit later</a>

    or probably easier, by adding this code over Add link option instead:{id}&mode=edit

    You can see this in action here:

    You will get an email with the edit link and it will be shown to you on the Thank you page.

    Now to set it up, go to email (the same steps are for thank you page as well).

    Now add the text that you want to use as keyword, select it with your mouse and click on add link button in toolbar.

    In the new window add the link to your jotform and the jotform ID.

    For me this is:

    For you the example would be for the next jotform:

    then just add this right after the link: 50125475748964&sid={id}&mode=edit

    The number that you would use is the number of your form ID, in the above example it would mean that you should end up with:{id}&mode=edit

    Once you add it just click on Insert and that is it.

    Now the same steps should be taken for Thank you page as well.

    Do let us know how it goes for you.
