    Is there a way for me to edit a submission? Oftentimes people will email me after they submit saying that they submitted the wrong file or email address. Can I correct this in jotforms? Can they?

    Hello ArlingtonArtsCenter,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You can edit the submission and you can also allow your users to edit their own submissions.

    How you can edit submissions? Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Go to your form's submission page:  http://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions 

    2. Select the desired submission you want to edit and then click on the "Edit" button from the top right corner of your screen. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    How you can allow your users to edit submissions? You need to add "{edit_link}" tag in your form's autoresponder. User can click on the URL to edit their own submissions. 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.
