Editing a field in the entry form is similar to the creation of a field, except that not all values can be edited.
|Prerequisite||Have created a contest, with a registration form partly defined.
> Workflows > Contests
- In the list of contests, select the one you want to define by double-clicking on its name, or by selecting the contest and clicking on Edit.
- In the edit page, open the editor by clicking on the registration form icon in the workflow section.
Once the form is displayed, go to the Form configuration page.
The form template already includes default fields, including those that form the primary key. You can add more fields, or edit or delete the ones already in the form. It is IMPORTANT however not to delete the fields composing the primary key.
- In the list of form fields, click on the edit icon related to the field you want to edit.
- In the field edit window, edit the desired information.
Note that the Field and Required values cannot be changed once the field has been created.
- Do not forget to save your changes.
If you edited a field for a registration form that is already online, you will need to update the registration for the change(s) to be applied. The Update button is only displayed when changes are made.
