I am using Drupal 8.9.17 and Webform 6.0.4.

I have created a webform (registering for an event) that I am attaching to nodes (events). On the webform, I have checked "Allow users to update a submission using a secure token." And I have limited users to 1 submission per source entity.

All is good so far, but I would like the "Per user submission limit message" to say "You have already registered for this event" and then provide a link to view and edit their submission. I have attempted to do this using the [webform_submission:token-update-url] token. And I set the permissions so that users can view and edit their submissions. However, the page for the URL that token spits out displays what appears to be an object defining the webform or submission (see below) rather than an editable form.

What do I need to do to get a link to an editable version of the user's previous submission?

  • When you look at /admin/people/permissions#module-webform do your users have the permissions to view and edit their own webform submissions?

  • @misterdidi Yes, those permissions have been granted.

Just check "Limit users to one submission per webform/source entity" in the submission settings. Then:

Please make sure authenticated users are allowed to 'view own submission' and 'edit own submission'.

Now the user can submit their data. After submitting when they visit the webform again, they will see their previous data and can update that.

  • Everything you suggest, I indicated that I did in my initial question. And the result is that users cannot see their previous data, just the "Per user submission limit message" that I set up, minus the [webform_submission:token-update-url] token.
