How to Edit Submissions Made on Your Forms

May 27, 2022

Sometimes, you may discover a minor issue with some submission data in one of your forms that need to be corrected. Or, maybe you received a change request from one of your customers to correct something in the submission that was already been sent.

Another possible use case for 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.

  1. Go to My Forms and select the form.
  2. Click the Submissions button to open Jotform Tables.

  1. Search for the entry that you’d like to edit.

For more information, see “How to Search for a Submission from the Submissions Page”.

Once you’ve found the entry, you have two options to edit it:

Inline Edit Method

This method is the easiest. In the Inline Edit method, you edit the information directly in the cell where it appears.

To do this, double-click the cell and edit the content.

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

Edit Entry Method

You should use this method if you need to initiate a workflow, such as email conditions that are triggered by form resubmissions. The Edit Entry method loads the form so that you can edit the submitted information.

To start, click the entry’s vertical ellipsis icon then select Edit Entry.

Update the information then click the Submit button.


Form submitters can also edit their submissions. You can provide them with the edit link through the Autoresponder email. To do that, check out this guide on “How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date”.
