Hi, Very strange, some of the edit links are not displaying on my view. Some entries automatically display and others dont. I have if I force a value to load the edit page, the form fields are blank, however, if I check entries on the backend they are populated. The view itself does not contain any filters or sorts.  Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks

My guess is that it has something to do with form permissions, especially where the form fields are blank, because that means it can't bring up an editable version of the entry, so it displays a "new entry". See https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/set-up-front-end-editing/

Rob, I have updated the permissions to allow front end editting, however my workflow is as a such. A user submits a warranty application on the front end of our site. This entry then rolls up into a form view that an adminsitrator of our site only has access to. They can then update the form and apply a signature. This field is only available to the adminstror. In practice this should be working as exected, but somehow not. consistently. I have found that if I submit the applicaton form as an admin, the edit button shows. If I submit as an non-logged in user, the edit button doesnt work, Any thoughts?

Maybe someone else can help, but I won't be able to debug without a hands-on look at it.
