Data Entry Form

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • For the “owner” field, don’t select anything. Leave it blank.
  • For the “date” field, enter the date in the format specified. (This field is mandatory).
  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT enter anything in the “_id” field (which will be labeled yourtablename_id). This is a unique identifier, which will be automatically added for each record.

 

4. Enter your record data in the fields and then click on the “Add” button. You should receive a confirmation notice that your record has been added successfully.
