Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Database Addon - CFDB7 » Select columns for admin-view

  • hy,
    thank you for your plugin – the first i found which stores data well organized and saves files as well 🙂

    one thing came into my mind: it would be great to select fields which are shown in the admin overview. i have another addon which allows to show/hide fields depending on certain values and these options are stored in the first fields of the form. therefore, they are shown in the admin table of your plugin. (screenshot:

    if you could release it just as a filter in the first version it would be also great, no need for fancy UI 😉

    Thanks for your opinion..
    The plugin will get complex, If I add this type of filter.


    so you do not like the option? as it would only be an addon for developers, i guess it would not make it more complex for the typical user.
    but it is your choice of course 😉

    This is a must have in my opinion. For instance, when the form has a checkbox for a newsletter registration, having it on the main admin table as a column is much easier than clicking on each entry to check it. Espacially when the CSV export of unchecked boxes is not consistent (they contain weired content on my website).

    I second that, it’s a little strange that you can’t see all of your forms’ data. I understand not creating the added functionality of filtering the data, but at least seeing it would be more clear. Otherwise, you’d have to constantly export your DB to make sure it’s capturing everything.

    I’m also experiencing inconsistencies with the checkboxes, it’s mixing up the data across the last 4 columns when I export a csv.

    +1 from me.
    I’d like an option to choose which columns to see in admin and also choose the columns titles myself.

    we have some really complex forms, thus this plugin unfortunately displays only those columns that are of absolutely no use to the regular user..

    Thanks for a nice and free plugin!

    Hello everyone,

    I also support this option, in my example, I do not need the subject field at all, why do I have to keep it there as a blank one. It is better to choose required fields on the list and also to be able to choose names in the exported CSV.

    @arshidkv12, of course it is your decision, but an addition would be appreciated.

    @matthiaswagner, could you share the filtering plugin you mentioned?




    @solutionsdev, this is the plugin for conditional fields:

    no filter so far, i just meant that the requested functionality must not have a UI but could also be implemented as a wordpress filter.
