    If you have provided them the edit link URL then they will be able to update their submission.

    However, the following workaround might help block them from updating their submission. The idea is to hide your form fields on edit mode so they cannot edit their submission unless they entered the correct information on a field defined in the condition (optional).

    Here's how:

    1. Add the "Get Form Page URL" Widget into your form.

    2. Create a condition that if the get form page widget contains "edit", hide your form fields.

    Or you can have it like this if you want them to only edit the submission if they entered the word defined in the condition on a certain field.

    Hope this helps!
