    Submissions page - no edit button

    Asked by mmcfadden on September 27, 2010 at 12:54 PM

    I asked a question last week about linking from a report to a particular submission and was told it was not possible.  Instead you suggested that I make the submissions page public and add a password.  I did this but my users do not then have the option to edit the submission.  Does the user have to have an account in order to edit a submission or can they edit as a guest as long as they know the password?

    I am adding this to our feature requests list. It is currently not possible for users to edit a submission from a shared submissions page.

    Hi Dominick,

    Thanks for the heads up and sorry for the latency.

    Currently, the said function isn't yet available. Shared submissions can't be edited as of now but you can however download your form submissions data and shared it to them. It's a bit manual but this is the only way I could offer to you for now. Don't you worry as we will take note of this, it's just a matter of time specially nowadays our developers are extremely busy so we can't get it done quickly. Rest assured, we will not stop improving our product and services.

    Thanks for your time and for using JotForm. Have a pleasant day!
