Managing Administrator Remarks in eForm Form Submissions

Since the very beginning eForm comes with a feature called “Administrative Remarks”. It can be quite productive and can come in handy especially when you want to comment on user’s submissions without editing any of the fields.

#1: Setting up Administrative Remarks:

The settings is right inside Form Settings > General Settings.

Admin-Remarks

  • Administrator Remarks Title: Gives a way to change the title of the remarks column. Leaving it empty would disable this feature.
  • Default Administrative Remarks: What to put inside the remarks when a submission occurs.

#2: Default view of Administrative Remarks:

When being activated, this would show up the summary table.

The image below shows the output in default configuration.

Default-Admin-Remarks

Now we changed the Review title to Application Status and default message to Currently under review.

Custom-Admin-Remarks

It shows up to new submissions.

#3: Editing Administrative Remarks:

Edit-Submission

  • Under WP Admin > View all Submission, edit a submission.
  • You will see your remarks area where you can put custom remarks.
  • Enter anything you wish and save the submission.

Editing-Admin-Remarks

It will now show up in the old trackback link.

Edited-Admin-Remarks

Also you could send an email to the user about the update during the procedure.
