How to Edit Entries in WPForms

Would you like to edit form entries on your WordPress site? Sometimes a user might submit a form, but later realize that they shared some incorrect details. Or in other cases, you may just need to fix some typos.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to edit entries in WPForms.


Editing Form Entries

To get started, you’ll need to make sure you have at least one entry on your site.

Note: If you don’t have any form entries yet, you can preview your form and submit a test entry.

When you’re ready, click on WPForms » Entries in the left menu of your WordPress admin area. Then, click on the name of the form you want.

Open the WPForms Entries page

After clicking on the form’s name, you should see a page of all entries submitted for that form.

Note: If you need to find a specific entry, be sure to check out our guide to searching and filtering your entries list.

Once you’ve found the entry you want, go ahead and click the View option on the right side.

Open an individual entry in WPForms

This will open the individual entry’s page. In the upper right corner of this page, you should see a box named Entry Details. Within that box, click on the blue Edit button.

Click the Edit button on an entry

After clicking this button, the entry fields will adjust to be editable.
