The Data Entry Gramplet allows an easy method of editing previously added people, and adding new and related people in your family tree.==Usage==
==Usage==You can access the {{man label|Data Entry Gramplet}} by adding it to the Gramplet sidebars or bottombars in the People, Relationship and Chart views. This gramplet is only for "Person" category views, so it is unavailable in the Dashboard or Family views... or any other views that focuses on something other than the Active Person. You can still detach/undock the Gramplet to allow use while referencing other Views. The {{man label|Data Entry Gramplet}} consists of two separate sections: the '''[[Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active person]]''' and '''New person'''sections. Both sections have a number of text fields, just displaying that type of data for different people. The topmost of is thhe {{man label|Surname, Given''' :}} entry field/// which is a combined entry for just the surname followed by a comma and the given names, separated by a comma. If you need more fine finely grained editing on the name (for example, you need to add the person's name includes a suffix or prefix), you can use the Edit icon once a the new person has been selected as the active personcreated.
The '''{{man label|Death''' :}} and '''{{man label|Birth''' :}} lines for both the '''Active person''' and '''New person''' are also a combined entry, allowing you to enter a date and place. The date (if one) is entered first in any format available to your Gramps installation, followed by the word "<code>in" </code> (in your language) and the location (if one). For example, the following are all valid entries for the birth or death entries:
* Jan 1, 1867 in Kingsport, TN
If a location has been previously used, then it will share that location with the others. If it is new, it will be created.
A new To {{man button|Add}} a '''New person can be automatically added ''' as a relation to the active person. You can add choose a relation type from the {{man label|Add relation:}} drop down eg: ''No relation to the new active person ''(default), Add as a parentParent, spouseAdd as a Mother, siblingAdd as a Father, Add as a Spouse, Add as a Wife, or childAdd as a Husband, Add as a Sibling, Add as a Child. The gramplet Gramplet will guess at the best place to add the person. For example, it will add the new person to the first family available. The gramplet Gramplet will also try to discern gender where needed, guessing that the "father" spouse of a family is male, and the "mother" spouse is female. If these guesses are incorrect, you should add your new person via the normal Gramps data entry method.
If you would like to bring up the standard Edit Person window for the active person, simply click on the Edit button to the right of the Active person's name. If you would like to bring up the standard Edit Family window for the active person, click the Edit button to the right of the word "Family:" on the top row. This will bring up the first/primary family (if the active person is a parent in a family) or will bring up the active person's parent's family, if it is known.
If you begin an edit Click on the Edit button to the right of the active Active person, then 's name to use the active person data won't change until you either '''Save''' or '''Abandon''' your changesstandard {{man label|Edit Person}} window.
The '''Copy Active Data''' Click on the Edit button to the right of the {{man label|Family:}} label to use the standard {{man label|Edit Family}} window. This will copy bring up the entries of first/primary family (if the active person to is a parent in a family) or will bring up the entries for the new active person's parent's family, if it is known.
If you begin an edit of the active person, then the active person data won't change until you either {{man notebutton|Note that you cannot delete date Save}} or place information using this Gramplet{{man button|You can only add or change themAbandon}} your changes. For example, you cannot remove  {{man tip|Use an existing person as a Template|Understanding the precise data format needed to avoid creating duplicate place by just deleting the textand sources can be confusing.
