How to Edit Submissions Made on Your Forms

September 16, 2021

Sometimes, you may discover a minor issue with some of the submission data for one of your forms that need to be corrected. Or maybe a change related to one of your customers comes up after the fact, and you need to update their information. Or you might need to trigger a workflow/condition by editing form submissions. With Jotform, these changes only take a few clicks.

First, log into your account and find the form that you want to edit on your My Forms page.

Once you do that, click the form to select it, then click the Submissions button to open Jotform Tables.

In Jotform Tables, search for the submission that you’d like to edit. If you have multiple submissions, you can use the search bar to search for a specific submission.

Once you’ve found the submission, you have two options to edit it: the Inline Edit method or the Edit Entry method. Inline Edit is the easiest; however, if you need to initiate a workflow, such as email conditions that are triggered by form resubmissions, you should use the Edit Entry method.

When you use the Inline Edit method, you edit the information directly in the cell where it appears. To do this, double-click the entry in the table, and the edit box will appear beneath. Here’s an example for the phone number field:

Once you’re done editing, click outside the cell to save the new information or press the Enter key on your keyboard.

The Edit Entry feature loads the form so that you can edit the submitted information. To start, select the submission, click the three vertical dots icon on the left, and then click the Edit Entry option to load the form in a popup:

Update the information, and press the Submit button to save it. Just like that, the submission data has been saved, and the workflow is triggered. If you change your mind, click X on the popup to close the form.

Form submitters can also edit their submissions. You can provide them with the edit link through the autoresponder email. To do that, refer to this guide: How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date.

How to edit submissions made on your forms through the old submissions page

If you’re using the old submissions page, follow these steps to edit submissions.

After selecting the form and clicking the Submissions button on your My Forms page, you’ll be redirected to the Submissions Page

Find the submission you want to edit from the grid of submissions, click on it, scroll back to the top of the page, and click the Edit button.

Update the information, go to the last page/bottom of the form, and click the Submit button. If you decide not to make changes, click Cancel.
