    We are using JotForm to create our company safety forms. So if, for instance, a foreman submits a site inspection (the form then goes to our safety officer) and the safety officer see's something that needs to be edited, how can he send back that form to the foreman to edit and submit a second time without having to fill out a completely new form?

     

    EDIT:

    I have already added the "edit link" option to the auto-responder e-mail that is sent to the person filling out the form when they hit submit. This is supposed to produce a link to the form for the user to click and go back to edit if need-be, however, when I try sending a test e-mail there is no link. It literally just shows up in the e-mail like this:

    Hi,

    I assume you are using the "Test Email" button? To get a better result, you will need to fill out the form itself and click submit. This will give you a more accurate output to what part of the form is working and not.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards.
