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

October 12, 2021

You can now let users update an entry on a later date. To do so, first create an auto-responder email if it is missing on your form (autoresponders exist by default on new forms). Then add an {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 pre-filled form. From that link, they can update their entry.

1. While you are in the Form Builder go to

 Settings > Emails > Autoresponder > Edit icon

2. Add the {edit_link} to your autoresponder body and save the changes.

Email > Form Fields > Edit Link > Save

Done.

That’s it! If you have any questions, please post it to our support forum or leave a comment below!
