How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date

May 8, 2022

You can now let users update an entry at a later date. To do so, first create an Autoresponder email if it is missing on your form (using an Email element will automatically generate an Autoresponder). Then add the {edit_link} tag to the body of the email.

When a user submits the form they will receive a confirmation email containing a link to the prefilled form. From that link, they can update their entry.

  1. Open the Settings tab in the Form Builder.
  2. Click Emails on the left.
  3. Hover your mouse over the Autoerspender template.
  4. Click the Edit (pencil) icon.
