    I do have an additional question. I am trying to follow along to (http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder) but I am struggling. I want to email this form to a recipient and allow them to go back edit any of the fields at a later date. Can you please help me with this I am struggling to figure it out.

    When trying to follow http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder on part 4.2 I do not have a have a field "email" to use for recipient email. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is possible to add an E-mail field from Quick Fields, then it will be selectable under the Autoresponder recipient section.

    To allow submission editing add an {edit_link} to the email template.

    Thank you.

    Is it required to have an email field for the {edit link} to work?

    Each submission has an edit link, and it works regardless the form fields.

    The edit link has the following format:

    https://www.jotform.com/edit/{Submission_ID}

    In other words, you can generate such links manually knowing the submission IDs which can be checked from Submissions page.
