Managing Records

Being familiar with entering data into Kinabase will enable you to maintain an updated system, enhancing its usefulness for your users and ensuring that your reports and charts remain current.

Adding records

  • On the Sidebar, select the Collection you want to add a record to.
  • On the top of the list of existing records that is displayed click the Add button.
  • This will bring up a form containing all of the fields that have been set up for the Collection. Enter a value for all that are appropriate.
  • Click the Add button to save your record in Kinabase. You can also select the Add another? option beforehand if you want to add another record straight away.
  • If a field is required then you may see a warning if you fail to enter a value.

Editing records

  • From the Sidebar, select the relevant Collection.
  • From the list of records shown, select the record that you want to edit.
  • With the record selected, click the Edit button. This option will then present you with a form containing the existing data of the record chosen.
  • You can now add data, edit existing data or remove data from each of the fields.
  • If you remove data from a field that is required then you may see a warning if you fail to enter a value.
  • Click the Save button to commit your changes to Kinabase.

Deleting records

Occasionally you may find that you have entered a record into Kinabase that you no longer need, have accidentally entered twice, or need to remove for compliance purposes. In any case, removing a record is easy.

  • From the Sidebar, select the Collection that contains the record that you want to remove.
  • Select the record from the list. Searching may help if you have a large dataset.
  • From the options menu (⋯) select Delete.
  • To continue with removing the record click Delete.

When you remove a record it is permanently removed from Kinabase entirely. Our support team do not have any ability to restore deleted records, so please use with care.
