Setup a way for clients to edit web app items on frontend?

Aug 29, 2012 8:05 PM

Hi, I have a client that has a huge web app, with so many items that the web app usually takes a few minutes to list the first 20 items, or fails to load outright. But this is the page where the admin can search the webapp items to edit them.

 

I need a way to allow editing of web app items. Can it be done on the frontend somehow?

 

there is a nice search bar that is usually located on the web app list page in the admin area, where you can easily find a web app item to load and edit, however, because my web app has so many items,this page takes so long to load if at all, that i am stuck for a way to edit a single web app item now.

 

I see we can use the tag {tag_edit} for allowing users to esit web app items on the frontend, can this be used somehow on the frontend search results, but just for an admin?

 

Or alternatively,is there a way in the admin to search for a web app item, without loading the initial list of web apps?

    You need to add {tag_edit} to a list layout, create a page inside the secure zone and place {module_webappscustomer,....} on to it. Create a CRM record, give it a username and password and subscribe to a secure zone, then go to one of the web app items and assign it to that CRM record. Log in to a secure zone from the front end and the above module will list the item that's assigned to the CRM record you are logged in with and render edit link. Clicking on the edit link will take you to the edit layout and form where you can edit that item.

    Maybe you can check "Anyone can edit items:" in web app settings to allow anyone who belongs to the secure zone to edit the item. Although I'm having problems understanding what you wrote above I don't think it can be done, because you said " they can do a search and edit a result" and the search module will not display the edit link. Only {module_webappcusotmer,....} will do so.

    Yep

    You have to be logged in becasue these could be assigned to specific owners for example So can only work when logged in. If open to all your web apps would be full of porn and illegal downloads in no time

    Hi Scott,

     

    Go to the web app item you wish to assign to a CRM record and under More Options you'll find Submitted By section and Edit link. If you click on that edit link you'll be able to search for the CRM record and assign an item to it.

     

    Cheers,

    The only way to do that is to check "Anyone can edit items:" in web app settings, but then anyone with access to the secure zone will be able to edit them.
