Changing the value of submissions from a metadata?

Hi all,

Is it possible to change the metadata? For instances, I would like to change the username of a submission.

Thanks in advance!

The values of metadata submitted to the KoBoToolbox server are not changeable through DATA>Table>Edit. However, you could edit the same by downloading the data in an xls version.

Hello @Kal_Lam,
Is it possible to use calculation for metadata? This might allow to change partly.
Are other features also possible with metadata, like constraint (e.g. for start not before survey data), relevant …?
Kind regards

@wroos, the calculation seems to help manipulate metadata during data entry …


… but when it comes to editing from the DATA>Table>Edit it’s still impossible to edit a metadata inputs.

Reference xlsform:
