How to Change the Text of the Edit Link in Your Email Alerts

November 10, 2023

You probably already know how to add an edit link to your email alerts, which allows you or your user to edit a submission using a link. 

By default, the text shown in the email is “Edit Submission”. How do we customize this text? You can do that by following the steps below:

  1. Go to the Form Builder’s Settings tab.
  2. Click Email on the left.
  3. Edit your existing email alert or create a new one.
  1. Place your cursor in the Email Content editor where to insert the edit link.
  2. Click the Insert/edit link icon.
  1. In the Insert link window, set the URL to:{id}
  2. Input your desired anchor text in the Text to display field.
  3. Click the Ok button to complete the setup.
  1. Hit the Save button to save the changes.
