How do I make it so users see live changes/updates to a record in a table?

Hello community,

I was wondering if it was possible to have tables display live data (the individual record/cell is updated with the new value) by the end-user viewing the table.

Thank you!

Hi Brian

At a guess, you may be able to achieve this by enabling "Inline editing" of the table in question. Under options for the table you can tick the box which says inline editing. I'd try this first, otherwise you may have to add some CSS code to do periodic fast page, partial page or the table object refreshes, to avoid the user having to manually refresh their browser (which is a slight limitation in the way the current version of knack operates). You may also be able to trigger a partial refresh on the user having submitted a change to the table to avoid it refreshing while they are still editing etc.


good luck!
