    REQUEST: Need Edit Link in Report

    Asked by sbrand on March 30, 2013 at 04:32 PM

    I would to post a report of the entries where I can click on a field and have it basically be an EDIT link for that record in the daabase. Need it to act exacly like the {edit} link does, just pull up the form with that particular record content. Maybe just in include a column in the Visual Report Builder.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to add an edit link on the Report. As an alternate, you may instead add the {edit} on the notification email instead. 

    Thank you.

    It is currently not implemented maybe because you are able to modify the details using the submission page and it will automatically reflect on the report.

    However, I have forwarded your request to our developers for consideration. We will let you know once an update is made.

    Hi Steve,

    Our colleague Nicholas was refering to this Edit button in your form's submissions page.


    With this edit button, you can easily edit the submissions data of your form.

    I think it is similar to what you requested to do on the data on the report.

    This looks great. I was just looking for somehing my CLIENTS can use to access their record and modify if needed. Something more client friendly I can embed.
