CommCare allows you to edit your case data directly through the Case List report. This feature allows you to edit properties or values connected to a case, giving you full control over your data and ensuring your case's data is accurate. 

If you need to edit your from submissions, please see the Clean Form Submission Feature.


This feature (Clean Case Data) is available to users with a Pro Plan or higher. For more details, see the CommCare Software Plan Page.


To use this feature, proceed to the Reports/Case List and search for the case you would like to edit. Once you have found the case, select it to proceed to the Case Detail page. For more information on how to use the Case List, please proceed here.

Once you have found the case you would like to edit and selected it from the case list, you will be brought to the Case Detail page. 


To edit the case, select the Clean Case Data button that can be found at the bottom of the grid of case properties. 

Selecting this button will open a window with the case properties that you can edit.

Select save to commit the changes you want to make the case property. Doing so will update the case to reflect the new properties that you have submitted.
