    Hi,

    I want to fill a table from datatable plugin automatically with data from a database table whenever a user loads the page. Also when user changes some values in table I want to write that back into database table. How can I achieve that?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, Tomas

    Please, clarify, what do you mean. If you want to display data from database in Data Tables plugin by Supsystic – unfortunately it’s impossible to do right now.

    To save data that user have entered in the table, please use editable fields. To create editable field follow the instruction

    • Open Table
    • Open Table Editor Tab and create a table
    • Chose cells you want to modificate in Editable fields
    • And click here to add editable field function for highlited fields – http://prntscr.com/d81vk2
    • Open Settings Tab
    • In the Feature column
    • Tip “Save data in editable fields” – http://prntscr.com/d82noe
    • Save changes

    Importing from Google Sheets no longer seems to work like it used to. I can’t find the information about how to correctly publish the sheet anymore. Help??

    Hi Sheila
    Our developer checked the issue. In order to import Google sheets into table you need to:
    1. Open access for everybody to edit this document.
    2. Open Editor Settings Tab.
    3. Click on Import Button.
    4. File extension type – Google Spreadsheets.
    5. Fill in the URL of your Google Spreadsheets.
    6. Click on import button.
    7. Save changes of the imported table.
