To add the Send Update Request button…

  1. Click the Add column heading on your Jotform Tables.
  2. Go to the Buttons tab.
  3. Select Request Update (for the standalone Tables, you would need to export the form first to use this action type – simply click on the “Export a form” when you see one).
  4. Click the Next button.

  7. Select the Email element or provide an email address where to send the email request under the Recipient Addresses.

    You can change these later from the Edit column preferences menu.
  9. Click on the Create Column button to complete the setup.

And you’re done. The Send Update Request action button is now ready to use.
