Viewing, Editing, and Creating Records from the Web

Step by step guide for getting started viewing web records with Fulcrum

Once you are done collecting data on your mobile device, you may want to edit the records on the web. In addition to editing records collected on a mobile device, you can also create records completely from the web.

Return to your web account

Return to the Fulcrum dashboard.

Viewing Records

From the Fulcrum dashboard, click on the ‘view data’ icon.

View Data

Select the record you wish to view

This brings us to the records view. At the top of the screen you can switch the record view to change the record visualization, the three view options are map view, table view, or split view. For locating records it can sometimes be easier to use the split view. Switch to the split view.

Split View Split View: shows both the map and table in one window

There are a few ways to locate the record that you wish to edit. You can use the search & filter options or locate the record directly on the map or table. The table will filter records that are visible on the map.

Once the record is located either double click the record in the table or single click the record on the map.

Additionally, you can view and share a record by selecting the open option from the additional options (white plus with blue box) drop-down menu.

Editing a Record

From the record view page you can quickly edit a record by clicking on the edit button found in the menu bar at the top of the page. From there, you can edit any field, add additional photos, and even change the location of the data point.

Click Edit click edit

Repeat these steps to edit as many records as necessary.
