The unique ID is not the same on the report and the edit link.

    Many of my form users forget to save the confirmation email. They then ask me for the edit link URL so they can edit their form. I'd like to be able to refer to a cheatsheet so I can provide this to them.

    The submissions report only has the "ID" and not the "Edit Link"

    I'd like to be able to combine the form # and unique ID to make the edit link:

    http://submit.jotform.com/form.php?formID=(FORM ID HERE)&sid=(UNIQUE ID HERE)&mode=edit

     

    However, the "ID" on the report is different from the ID in the edit link. How can I get an ID that will work?

    Thanks! Sunil

    Hello Sunil,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    How can I get an ID that will work?

    You can add the Unique ID to your email Notification.

    However, the "ID" on the report is different from the ID in the edit link.

    I have created a ticket to our developers to check this out.

    As soon as we have any news we will post it here.

    Thanks Mike. However, this doesn't let me achive what I'm trying to do. 

    I want a report (preferably CSV) of all the submissions with the edit link next to it.

    The edit link isn't available in any of the reports so I'm trying to recreate it. I thought I could use a combination of the Form ID and the Unique ID which are available on the reports. But that doesn't work as the ID on the reports is different from the Unique ID used in the Edit link.

    I understand I can get the Form ID and Unique ID on an email but I then have to enter them by hand on a list. I'm trying to get a live report instead.

    Any suggestions on how to achieve what I'm trying to do?
    Thanks! Sunil

    @sunliv, 

    The problem of the submission id being different in your submissions list on JotForm to the one produced by an 'edit_llink' on a notification/auto responder email is currently with a developer and is being looked into.
