    Edit Submission link: limit the number of times the submission can be edited/resubmitted

    Asked by GICS on February 12, 2016 at 08:27 AM

    Is there any way to apply a limit on the Edit Submission link for it to be used only once?

    Unfortunately, the limit is not possible. I've submitted this as a feature request to our developers. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it through this thread.

    I don't know if this is helpful at all, but in my form at Settings>>Emails>>Notification>>Email Content, I simply highlighted the text at the bottom of the page that included the {edit submission} and deleted it.  I did a test submission and there isn't any link at the bottom of the notification email that allows me to edit the submission.

    Thank you for sharing your solution to remove the edit link. However I think that GICS needs to send edit link via email Notification or Autoresponder email, but he needs to apply the limit to edit link, so that form can be edited only once with edit link.
