I'm developing a complaint portal for administration. All complaints are submitted by sites users. I'm fetching these complaints using views and don't know how to add active/Inactive as drop down options in each complaint. As everybody knows complaints' status stays active until it resolves. Active/inactive field is not existed in content type form.
This is for admin ease, admin can change the status of the complaint active or inactive.
Please let know if anyone has any experience regarding this.
You can use the Field Permissions module according to module's page:
The Field Permissions module allows site administrators to set field-level permissions to edit, view and create fields on any entity.
Then set permissions for your active/inactive field to be for admins only, then the field will not show for general users but admins will be able to change the status when they view each complaint.
I have done this task. Use Field Permissions module to hide a field from user end. You can set permissions when you create or edit field. Then install editable fields and in creating views, add a field that have multi values (like list type field) and change the Format from default to editable. That's it
