Update Records Using a Details Page
Note: If you would like to grant access to only one record such as the user's profile record, you can use an Update Single Record DataPage
In most apps your users will need to modify multiple records. This functionality is best handled in the details page of a Report DataPage.
When creating a Report you will be asked if you want to include a drill down details page which allows you to view a record in greater detail. On a details page, all DataPage elements will be Display Only by default. Display Only allows record information to be visible but not edited by the user.
If you would like to make that field editable, you can change the field element to an editable type such as text field, radio buttons, or a drop down. Editable fields still show the current field value but can be changed by the user. When one of the DataPage elements is made editable you will also get access to the automatic email options. The Report DataPage can automatically send an email whenever a record is updated.
When one of the fields is editable the end user will also see an Update button appear on the details page. Clicking this button will update the record with the contents of the details page.
