    Custom Edit Link

    Asked by appraisalnation on October 28, 2015 at 11:02 AM



    I was curious if it was possible to change the output of {edit_link} to a customer domain? I am using subdomain.domain.com as the custom DNS. However I would like for emails sent to people to contain an edit link that goes to subdomain.domain.com rather than the Jotform domain.

    I believe that should be possible. Here's a related thread on that.

    Here are the steps:

    1. First, you'll need to follow this guide to have a custom domain for the forms: http://www.jotform.com/help/144-How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform.

    2. After that, instead of using the {edit_link} tag in your email notification template. You'll just need to edit the edit link format.

    Example, here's the default edit link of my form:


    I will then edited it to:


    Yellow highlight: The custom domain for your form

    Blue highlight: The form ID

    Pink highlight: This is the submission ID, however, if you want it to be auto generated in your email notification, you'll need to use the tag {id}.


    I hope that helps.
