    Is there anyway to have a form submitted and have the response sent as an attachment or editable document?

    Asked by Josh  on October 28, 2015 at 10:45 AM

    I'm looking to have an online form (that can be viewed on mobile) that once submitted it will send the response with the questions and answers to the recipient as an editable form. So that if a date or time had to be edited they can edit it right on the form as opposed to going back and submitting a new one. Ideally it would be exported as an excel file or a word template.

    You can share the edit link for the form instead. It will update the existing submission. Here's a guide for it: http://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date.

    You can also setup an email notification and add the edit link there. You can also set specific email notifications and send them based on user input, here's a link that might help: http://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection.

    I hope that helps.
