      Also a delete submission option from the edit link would be great.

    Hi,

    We don't have this option, but I have now submitted this thread to our developers as a feature request. Our developers would decide about this and let you know here for updates.

    For now, you may consider the following workaround to delete the submission:

    Add a Radio Button or Checkbox field, for example:

     

    Add a conditional logic that would hide all the fields if "Yes" is selected, for example:

    You can use any of the following methods for showing/hiding multiple fields:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/196-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once

    https://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool

     

    Now, enable "Clear a field on hide" in the Preferences > Advance settings:

    Here's an example form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50834311556957 to test this method. Choosing "Yes" will hide all the fields and based on the settings in the preferences, all fields be cleared.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    By the way, note that you can also delete an individual submission in the form submissions page. You have to access your form submissions:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions

    If you want your colleague to delete a submission, you can share the whole form submissions page:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/199-How-to-Share-Form-s-Submissions-Page

    Another option would be to add your colleagues as a sub-user account with "View Submission" permission to be able to delete a submission:

    Thank you!
