    Yes, that's still possible.The best and easiest way to accomplish that is to use Edit Link on Notifications under Form Fields.

    Or if you want to play JotForm URL Parameters then you may try my 2nd link above.

    Hi,

    Can you please tell me what exactly you mean on not active? If you mean it's not clickable then just highlight the code, click on hyperlink icon   and insert the edit link code under Link URL box, check screen below:

    Please let me know if I have misunderstood your idea, so we can help you further. Thanks.

    I am talking about

    http://www.jotform.com/form/formid/{email4}

    Not working after submmmision. My porpuse was so that they could just login from form A to see and change

    their email subscriber settings. Edit Link I cand create a login with emailf for. I have found a way pat this problem without the ssave link. But, it would be nice if the save link (not {edit_link} ) worked after submission. That way they could update thier info without sercing for a link just typing thier email i the box on form A and then voila they reach their form.

    Hi,

    You should construct it like this:

    Click to visit: http://www.jotform.com/form/13350212572?email1={email1}

    The green one should be your form link ending with questions mark (?), the blue one is your E-mail textbox name, ending with equal sign (=) and the red part is your Email Form Field Code.

    To get your Textbox Name, please check below:

    1. Open the source code of your form to identify each text box you wish to be prepopulated.

        You can also use Google Chrome, simply right click on the textbox and inspect element.

    2. Find the textbox name in the textbox tag

    3. Copy the name after the "_"

    Example:

    <input type="email" class="form-textbox validate[Email]" id="input_1" name="q1_email1" size="30" placeholder="ex: myname@example.com">

    That way, they could simply edit their email on the prefilled Email Textbox.

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thanks.
