Update data instead of adding a row

Hi there,
I've set up a simple point tracker to help my son stay engaged with his reading tutor - which is virtual during the pandemic. Every time she awards points, he hits the + and if he loses them he hits the -. At the end of the session, he hits submit and the score variable is added to the data cloud when he hits the submit button. It adds a new row each time, which is fine for reporting at the end. The problem is that since he adds the scores, not the tutor, he can cheat.

I'd like to use another variable that sends the current total to the data set and updates/replace the existing number every time he hits the plus/minus button (instead of adding a row) so that I can create a corresponding view for his tutor on the other end. For example, when he hits + for three points, she'll be able to see the new total when her screen refreshes.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Steve. I'm not seeing any technical support-related questions, but since the title of this thread is "Update data instead of adding a row" I assume that's what you're looking for. You can check this discussion: https://cluelabs.com/community/forum/topic/anyone-accessing-the-same-variables-with-data-cloud/ It explains how you can use the same row across multiple sessions.
