Editing Form Entries

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.

This tutorial will show you how to edit entries in WPForms.

Editing Form Entries

Before you jump in, make sure WPForms is installed and activated on your site. You’ll also need to verify your license and create your first form if you haven’t already.

To follow along with the tutorial below, you’ll need to have at least one entry on your site as well.

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

Editing Form Entries

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 whose entry you want to edit.

Open the WPForms Entries page

After clicking on the form’s name, you should see a page of all the 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 to make changes to, click the Edit option under Actions on the right side of the list.

Alternatively, if you’d like to look at the entry first to determine if any changes are needed, you can click on the View option instead.

Viewing an individual entry's page

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

Click the Edit button on an entry

After clicking this button, the entry fields will become editable.
