    How to allow users to come back and edit their own submission record?

    Asked by tallbergfoundation on March 03, 2015 at 04:40 AM


    Is there a function to add that makes it possible for the registrant to log back in to the submitted form and update the form?

    Hello Sara,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to allow your users to come back and edit their own submission record. Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You need to basically add {edit-link} tag in your form's autoresponder email alert. This will add one clickable link the submission email which the users will receive after the form submission. Clicking on this URL will allow the users to edit their own submission record. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
