Input Table Data Editing for Explorers (Beta)

This feature is currently in Beta. Beta features are subject to quick, iterative changes. As a result, this document may not reflect the most current version.

Input Tables are workbook data elements that allow manual data entry in some columns.

Not all users have permission to edit data in any given Input Table. Users that do have permission to edit an Input Table's data also may not have access to edit all its columns. Input Table editing permissions are defined by the Input Table's author.

Changes to an Input Table may be reflected in other data elements. This happens when other elements reference columns in the Input Table.

Data edits that are not explicitly saved (by clicking Save) are automatically discarded when the workbook is closed.

This article introduces how to interact with Input Tables. 

Interact with an Input Table

Editable Input Tables can be identified by an Edit Data button that appears on hover. 

Data edits that are not explicitly saved (by clicking Save) are automatically discarded when the workbook is closed.

  1. Click Edit Data.
  2. Make your edit(s).
    Edits have a yellow triangle on them if they have not been saved.
    • To enter data in a cell, click the cell and type a value. Cell value(s) must match the column’s type.
    • If all columns in the table are editable, you can also add new rows to the bottom of the table. To add a row click the + button.
  3. To save your edits, click the Input Table's Save button.
    To discard your edits, click Cancel
