Web AppBuilder Edit in Attribute Table

The Esri JavaScript API 3.16 had added editing functionality to the Attribute Table widget. Can this functionality carry over into later relases of WAB?



I would like to see this because the attribute table allows for advanced sorting with a familiar spreadsheet interface. And also hopefully this will allow batch editing.


I would also like to see editing capability added to the attribute table in WAB for users of the app the same simple way that we can edit in the attribute table of the web map. I'm designing a map for users familiar with spreadsheet editing and simple need to change attribute data to see the choropleth map updated when they make the edit to the attribute being mapped. No selecting or geometry editing required in my use case, and those options as provided in the Batch Attribute Editor would confuse my audience.


Another vote for this functionality. This would really assist in our workflow.


I would vote this up 5000 times if I could. This capability would solve so many internal requests for me. Please do this ASAP.


Agree. And, if we could clear out attachments in this way (ALL attachments and photos) or somehow, all in one fell swoop on AGOL.  That would be very essential in order to use AGOL for damage assessment.  Basically, I would like to see the webmap and the WAB attribute tables have a Field Calculator and essentially replicate how it works in Arc.


I really hope this happens soon.  I'm looking for a quick way to allow users to just update one field via a web map.


It is hard to believe that this functionality has yet to be implemented. These simple but powerful resources like contingent values and table editing really need to be added. 


Would provide excel like experience to end users and scale up usage and buy-in.

Great idea !


Too bad to see that Esri is not engaging on this idea; we also need this.

I've submitted this request, more or less, with Esri Technical Support as ENH-000136181: Allow for users to update attributes from Hosted Tables in ArcGIS Online via Web AppBuilder

If there's a response from Esri I'll report back here.


This would be great functionality and a great feature to add to WebAppBuilder. Why can attributes be edited in the pop-up window within WebAppBuilder but not within the attribute table? 

This would have many beneficial uses in our organization. 

Please consider this as soon as possible!
