    A way to send an edit link after a form has been submitted with usage of the same subdomain?

    Asked by client_forms on October 03, 2016 at 02:15 PM

    Is there a way to send an edit link after a form has been submitted, but use the same subdomain that was used originally when the file was first submitted.

    For example, the form is located on http://forms.mydomain.com/client_forms/user

    But when they get the email with the edit link, it takes them to https://www.jotform.com/edit/1234567890

    edit link JotForm same edit link subdomain

    Hello,

    Yes, it is possible.

    But,  you will need to manually edit your edit link and not depend on the automatically created edit link.

    Here's how you should set your edit link:  http://forms.southernsonphotography.com/edit/{id}  

    Once the email gets submitted, {id} will be replaced with the submission ID and should pre-fill the information with the existing submission for that specific ID.

    Here's an example of the result of one certain submission with the said corresponding ID:

    http://forms.southernsonphotography.com/edit/351327986216433873

    If you have questions or if you need clarification, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Ok. Thanks for the help.

    The way to do it is set up the autoresponder and then create a link with a url of 

    http://forms.southernsonphotography.com/edit/{id}

     

    When the form is completed, it sends this email along with the link with the submission ID automatically added at the end. Now it gives them the link to my subdomain with the correct ID at the end!

     

    If you don't mind, can you mark this conversation as "public"? I would like others to see this answer as well and didn't realize i marked it private. Thanks!
