How to create a dashboard with text input fields that will update a lookup file?

Path Finder

Is there a way to create a dashboard with text input fields that does not do any searching, but rather pushes user input into a new row within a created input file?

Basically what I am trying to accomplish is this:

Lookup File: userLoggedInfo.csv

Dashboard: User Log

Dashboard looks like this:

Event: | Text Box |
Time of Event: | Text Box |
IP in event: | Text Box |
Analysis Notes: | Text Box |

When a user plugs in information I want to add what the user wrote to the lookupfile in a new row.

So before user inputs information, the file would look like this:
|Event|Time of Event|IP in Event|Analysis notes|

After the user hits the submit button in the dashboard, it should update like so and any future submission would be added to the next empty row:

|Event |Time of Event |IP in Event |Analysis notes |
|HD Error | Dec 21 | 192.168.16.1 | HardDrive failed because a rock was thrown at it. Verified|

So what would be a good starting point in learning to make textboxes output non-queried text into a lookup (for later querying) in a submittable form based dashboard?

Hi EdgarAllenProse,

given you have a lookup called 478751 which contains the following:

Event,"Time of Event","IP in Event","Analysis notes"

you can use this run everywhere dashboard to see how this can be done:

<form>

  <fieldset submitButton="true" autoRun="false">
    <input type="text" token="field1">
      <label>Event</label>
    </input>
    <input type="text" token="field2">
      <label>Time of Event</label>
    </input>
    <input type="text" token="field3">
      <label>IP in event</label>
    </input>
    <input type="text" token="field4">
      <label>Analysis Notes</label>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row rejects="$field1$">
    <panel>
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| inputlookup 478751 | table Event "Time of Event" "IP in Event" "Analysis notes"</query>
          <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
  <row depends="$field1$">
    <panel>
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| inputlookup 478751 | append [ | makeresults | eval Event="$field1$", "Time of Event"="$field2$", "IP in Event"="$field3$", "Analysis notes"="$field4$" | fields - _time ] |  table Event "Time of Event" "IP in Event" "Analysis notes" | outputlookup 478751</query>
          <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

You can of course change the lookup name to match your file.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
