We use a plugin called Caldera Forms to manage data submitted via a form. Each form submission is sent via email to a nominated recipient and the data is stored in a table where it can be reviewed and edited.
Viewing Form Data
You can see the forms available when you hover over the Caldera Forms entry in the Dashboard sidebar.
Click on the form you are interested in and the summary table showing the most important data for that form is shown. The image below shows the Guestbook table
Editing Form Data
You can view all the form data for a given row using the View button.
You edit the data from the view screen using the Edit Entry button at the bottom left of the window. This will display the original form with the fields pre-populated with the data.
NOTE: some of the fields you can edit will not be shown until you make a change to any field (a bug in the form handling editor). Most forms have a Consent checkbox so just click on this to see all the form data. In the case of the Guestbook you will now see the approved checkbox.
Saving Form Changes
Edit the fields as required and you will need to recheck any consent boxes before you can use the Save Changes button to updated the table. Just close the window if you do not want to save your changes.
Important: you will not be warned if you make changes and close the window without saving your changes.
Once you have saved the changes the original table should be redisplayed, but sometimes this doesn’t happen. If you see an animated circle of dots for more than a couple of seconds the data will have been saved but the form redisplay has failed. Click on the X (top right) on the form and it will close down. You will need to manually reload your page using the browser’s reload icon (circular arrow near the URL).
