Update Web Form?

Question

Hello and thanks for your help.

I have users submitting information through a web form and we're displaying it in various search and report data pages.

What I'd like to do is allow an admin to make a change to a record after it's submitted. Specifically, I'd like to resize the jumbo photos they submit and display smaller versions without having to go into the 'files' function of caspio.

Is the Update Web Form the right way to do it, and if so, what are the basics of passing parameters?

Thanks

Hello,

Update Web Form basically is used when you would like to let users to update their profile as it just pullup one record based on users login.

So if you would like to let an administrator to have some rights on changing users' data you could create a Search and Report DataPage and let the fields be editable by selecting the fields' form elements as text box rather than display only in the \"Configure Details Page Fields\" wizard screen. This way admin could pullup the report and edit the data.

To limit users from inserting large files you could limit the file size in the Web Form wizard where you are configuring fields.

Thanks Barbara, but when I try to edit the record through the Data Page, the photo field, which is a file, can't be edited.

Unfortunately, I need the high-res images for print publication. I'm currently saving those offline, then overwriting them in the Caspio table with a resized low-res duplicate.

Yes there is a way to make the file editable. In the DataPage wizard where you select the form element as File for that field you will see two tabs for field options, one is Display Options and the other one is Edit Options where you can choose upload new file.

The Caspio Bridge Image Resizer can create thumbnail versions of your images automatically when they are submitted to a table through a File field. More information can be found at https://howto.caspio.com/files-and-images/resize-images/.

In addition, here's documentation for displaying Files in DataPages: https://howto.caspio.com/files-and-images/uploading-files-and-images/
