Rather than updating the data source manually, or by exporting and editing the spreadsheet, it is possible to create a form to perform data source updates.  This is useful for updates that will be necessary on a regular basis, or to perform updates from the MESH application.

The first step is to create a new Data Entry Form.

Before you complete creating, ensure you select the data source that the form will be modifying.  This will ensure that each field (column header) in the data source will be automatically added to the form.

Once the form is created, all fields within that data source will be created in the form, and be tied to the data source.  If you need to change the field type, you may drag and drop the necessary field into the form - just ensure it is tied to the proper data source field.

As long as the fields in the Data Entry Form are properly bound to the data source, any time that form is uploaded in the app, the data source will be updated accordingly.

For more information on creating forms, please review that section of our Help Centre.
