I am using Umbraco 7.13 and I made a request form and as per requirement, this can be editable at some point.
My form includes file upload control and some textboxes.
Please advise how to manage form entry (edit/update/delete) either in back office or frontend whichever is more secure.
If you could also provide some documentations and examples will be very helpful as I am new to Umbraco.
Thank you very much!
You need to set AllowEditableFormSubmissions to true.
You will find the UmbracoForms.config in the \App_Plugins\UmbracoForms the find the below, and change it to true
<!-- Setting to true allows Form Submissions to be edited using ?recordId=GUID -->
<!-- BEWARE! Enable this feature ONLY if you do understand the security implications. -->
<setting key="AllowEditableFormSubmissions" value="True" />
Hope this helps,
Hi Alex, thank you for the reply.
I actually did that and it works fine but I noticed the Fileupload is not updated. I am not sure why.
Please let me know if you have an idea on this.
Not sure why, so when you upload a value first time - it works.
If you try to edit it via backend - not?
Basically the edit is in the front-end, I added something like this : "?recordId=
I have 2 upload files, initially only 1 is populated. So in my edit I populated the 2nd one. After submit, the first 1 got lost and only the 2nd one has the value. Everything else were updated.
Is there a way to edit forms in backoffice? I saw only View and Delete actions but no Edit/Update.
Please advise. Thank you very much.
I managed to solve the issue with the file upload edit.
Not sure if this is the best way.
This post helped with the idea: https://our.umbraco.com/forum/umbraco-forms/93241-umbraco-forms-custom-upload-field-store-string-value-of-file
string fieldFolder = field.Id.ToString();
string newFolder = DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime().ToString("ddMMyyyyhhmmss");
string dir = "/media/forms/" + fieldFolder + "/" + newFolder + "/";
IList<HttpPostedFileBase> files = context.Request.Files.GetMultiple(field.Id.ToString());
var existingFile = context.Request.Form[field.Id.ToString() + "_file"];
foreach (HttpPostedFileBase file in files)
if (file.FileName != "")
// Create directory
// Save the file
file.SaveAs(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(dir + SafeURL(file.FileName)));
// Add string to the form
myValue.Add(dir + SafeURL(file.FileName));
//force close the file to avoid error in accessing the file
// Remove any old file
if (existingFile != null)
string oldDir = existingFile.Substring(0, existingFile.LastIndexOf("/"));
// Remove old directory
// If nothing has been added but a previous value exists add to the list
if (myValue.Count() == 0 && existingFile != null)
