    Hi,

    Is it possible to use Jotform Tables as an asset database? Issue a form to update/change an existing entry (not create a new entry).

    For example if you had an asset database for vehicles.

    1603849770_5f98ce2adcdcf_

    Schedule form for Asset ID 1 to a user that can view & update Asset ID 1 inspection date / km's / condition /

    If its not possible, I can imagine the market for managing assets using forms and productivity tables would be very large.

    Regards,

    You can insert/update data within JotForm Tables, however it is not possible to retrieve data and use it for future submissions just like how you can retrieve and manipulate data of a regular database.

    Nonetheless, you can always edit a submission anytime or have someone edit a submission outside of JotForm Tables by giving them the edit submission link.
