Locked Fields in CDS


Has any one figured out how to edit locked fields without having to unlock and re-lock the field to complete the edit?

Yes I am will aware that you can do this by editing in excel. However that is not a good way to manage data.

Re: Locked Fields in CDS

Hi @MelodyShults ,

Could you describe more about about "unlock and re-lock the field to complete the edit"?

I do not know you use which way to update based on this description.

Currently, we only support these ways to update:

1)update in PowerApps app

2)edit in excel

3)data integration (import data from other resources)

If you want to edit data in this management page, I'm afraid it's not supported now.
