Reports DataPages in Caspio are not just for displaying data. They provide the most robust ways of editing and updating existing data in your application. Each method of data editing can be enabled or disabled as you wish. Furthermore, as the author of the application you can specify which of your application fields are editable.

Inline Insert – Available in tabular reports, user can add new records at the top or bottom row of the search results.

Inline insert is best for quick addition of new records in small tables. Consider a full web form for more control and advanced options. All Unique fields of your data source must be included in Inline Insert. This is because these fields must have proper values for the new record to be inserted.

Editing in Details Page

Available in all report types, user drills down from search results page to an individual record to view, edit or delete in a standard web form style.

In Bulk Update and Bulk Delete notification emails can contain a customizable list of all affected records.
