Some of our admins have been asking to do quick edits, right from the table view. We've always whipped up a custom solution for them right then and there, but now... we're proud to say we have a general solution, one that is comprehensive enough that it covers most needs in seconds, but simple enough that we can keep maintaining for years.
We're happy to announce that we've released a new premium add-on last month. You know us, we like our names super-descriptive... so what do we call something that adds columns that are editable? Well... 🥁🥁🥁 EditableColumns, of course. And here it is, in all its simplistic glory:
Backpack Editable-Columns makes it dead-simple to let your admin do quick edits in the table view, by adding a few new columns you can use:
As you'd expect, those columns actually have an input inside them. When changed, they'll make an AJAX call, run validation, then show a success/error message. They're a simple solution to a complex problem. But we've thought of the little details too:
We've really tried to "keep it simple" with this one, and I think it shows in how easy we've made this complex feature to implement. And how well it works out-of-the-box. Don't believe us? **Try it right now, in our online demo. **
Please note that this is a premium add-on:
Big big thanks to Kevin Ohashi from reviewsignal.com and namebio.com, who's sponsored creating this add-on for us all! And to our team member, Antonio Almeida (@promatik), who's done the heavy lifting on it.
And of course, thanks to everyone who's used, contributed to or purchased Backpack. It's what helped us get to the point where we can build this feature. And we'll keep adding new features in the coming months. Some free. Some pro. And some paid, like this one.
We love doing this for you 🙏 Cheers!
