    Can anyone just update the submission using the Edit link?

    Is there not a danger (however small) of anyone coming across the page and being able to edit the data held within?

    It would require guessing the submission ID number.  It is a rather long string of random numbers that could theoretically be accessed through repeated tries.  Though it would only give access to update that single submission and is very unlikely to happen.  Submission numbers are not sequential, so even if someone guessed one correctly, they would still not be able to access any further submissions to update.

    Fair enough.


    Thanks David.
