    1. Can I create an {edit_link} link to previously uploaded forms?
    2. I don’t see the {edit_link} link field in any of the reports available, ie: the HTML or Excel report. The reason I want this, is so that sometime in the future, I may want to send this {edit_link} to the person and ask him/her to update or edit their previously provided data. How can I use {edit_link} in this way?

    The edit link is easy to create, all that we need are few things:

    1. Form domain ( {domain} )

    2. Form ID ( {formID} )

    3. Submission ID ( {submissionID} )

    Once we have these, this is how we construct them into something we can use:

    http://submit.{domain}/form.php?formID={formID}&sid={submissionID}&mode=edit

    Looking at your forms I see that this one is the latest one: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/52603926746966

    Now the {domain} above would be jotformpro.com

    The {formID} would be 52603926746966

    The submission ID is specific to each submission, so you would need to find this out through the Submissions Panel.

    An example would be:

    http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formID=52603926746966&sid=12345678901234&mode=edit

    Also, to confirm, no there is no edit link in reports, nor an option to include the same.

    Hope this helps, but please do let us know if you happen to have any issues along the way and we would be happy to assist with the same :)
