    Hey @kristalangmartin, you can add the EDIT LINK to your Email Notifications or Autoresponders depending on who you want to edit the submission.

    If you want to edit the submission yourself after a user/respondent submitted it, you would edit your EMAIL NOTIFICATION. Or you can just simply edit it straight from the Submissions Page.

    Related guide: How-to-Edit-Submissions-Made-on-Your-Forms 

    If you want your users/respondents to edit their respective submissions on the other hand, then you'll edit the AUTORESPONDERS.

    Since you never mentioned which form you're working on, I checked the most recent form you edited and confirmed you already managed to add the {edit_link} on your Autoresponder.

    In case you wanted to apply this on your Email Notification too, then just do the same process, only this time, you'll do it with your Notification (the orange one).
