About The Data Editor
The Data Editor is an extension that provides the ability to edit submitted form data in the Administration console and save changes to the database.
First, Switch To Edit Mode
Edit Data in cells
Click on any cell to edit.
Limitation: Data in the Submit Time column cannot be edited.
Edit Cell Column Names
Limitation: The Submit Time column cannot be edited/renamed.
Add New Columns
Great for tracking order status and work flow. Add columns that do not appear as fields on your form for tracking internal information or metadata about each form submission.
Note: this adds a column to the data. Don’t confuse this with adding a new field to your HTML form. Adding a field to your form will automatically add a new column to your data after the first form submission that has that new column. If you want to add a field to your form, just add the new field in your form definition in Contact Form 7 or Fast Secure Contact form
Note: if the column that you delete is a field on your HTML input form, then in addition to deleting the column (the data associated with that field) you will also want to remove the field from your HTML form definition in Contact Form 7 or Fast Secure Contact form. Otherwise, the column will re-appear once a user makes a new form submission containing that field.
Limitation: The Submit Time column cannot be deleted.
Opening an Entry to Edit
Click on the Submitted link for an entry.
Brings up a new page with more room to edit just the value in that submission. Click on a value to edit.
NOTE: When you update an entry in this new page, you will need to refresh the Administration page (table of submissions) to see the change there.
Editing in a Post or Page
To make an editable table on a post or page, use [cfdb-datatable form=”Your Form Name” edit=”true”]. See cfdb-datatable edit option.
Clicking on a cell or column header makes the cell editable just as it does in the administration page. A user can only edit if he is logged in and his role satisfies the Options page -> Can Edit/Delete Submission data setting.
Table column header can be edited but this will not work if you are using the “headers” option in the short code to rename the column headers.
Import/Export Data as CSV
