This help desk is no longer actively support. We have switched to a ticketing system to more smoothly manage support, and free up development time. Your newly created tickets won't be available here. You will instead have an email history of your new tickets.

We are working on moving everything current and helpful from public tickets into the docs. This will be a long process and in the meantime, public tickets will remain searchable.

Edit a single entry value input

Hi,

I've been getting into using your single entry edit feature https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/insert-a-link-to-change-the-value-of-a-single-field/ which is really powerful if used the right way - thanks!

As per normal I'm asking if something extra is possible. At the moment you have to hardcode the value that you want a particular field in a particular entry to change to. Is there any way of providing the form element, or even an entry box for the user to type into so that the value can be set to something dynamic?

For example, if I have a name field I can only currently change it to a name I hardcode into a link, is there a way of having a text box that a user can use to 'edit' their name and click a link to action it.

I'm realising this is a feature request as I type. I suppose ideally the format of the input box would be the same as that of the field in the form, so you're essentially exposing one of the form fields to be edited and saved.

Thanks!

Rich

This isn't a current option, but would definitely be nice to add. Thanks for adding it for votes.

Voting for this!

Has this been added as an option yet?

a vote from me too!

Hi guys! It looks like this was added a while back, but didn't make it into the docs! You can now use fields="25,26" or exclude_fields="30,31". Here's more detail:
