Sometimes, you might find a minor issue with submission data in one of your forms that needs to be corrected. Or maybe you received a change request from one of your customers to correct something in the submission that was already sent. Another time you might need to use this feature is when you need to trigger a workflow or condition by editing form submissions. With Jotform, these changes take only a few clicks.
To view the form’s submissions
In Jotform Tables, use the search bar in the upper-left to find the entry that you’d like to edit.
For more information, see How to Filter and Search Submissions.
Once you’ve found the entry, you can either perform an inline or entry edit to update the submission.
Inline editing is done by changing the values directly on the table. Simply choose the cell to update and enter the new value.
Did you know?
You can let your respondents update their submissions by sending them the edit link to their entries. To learn more, see How to Request Submission Updates in Jotform Tables.
Entry editing is done by opening the form prefilled with the submission’s data, changing the prefilled values, and then submitting the form. You can initiate the process by opening the entry’s menu using the three-dot icon in the first column, and then selecting Edit Entry from the menu.
You should use this method if you need to initiate a workflow, such as email conditions that are triggered after submission.
To edit an entry from the old Submissions page, choose the submission from the table at the bottom, then select Edit in the upper-right corner.
This opens the form prefilled with the submission’s data. Change the values on the form and then submit it to update the entry.
