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

December 1, 2021

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 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 prefilled 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} tag to your Autoresponder body and save the changes – Email » Form Fields » Edit Link » Save.



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