I find the current webform submission table completely inadequate when forms are submitted by anonymous users - you can't tell one from another other than by its submission date which not helpful in many instances. I would like to create a new webform submission table that can display specific fields from the submission itself to help identify who the submission is from. Ideally if I could accomplish this with views that would be great, but I am not adverse to creating a module if need be. Has anyone done this before and what would be the best approach?

Unfortunately, the current stable release of the Webform module doesn't support getting to any of the webform submission fields through Views.

However, if you look at this issue on Drupal.org: http://drupal.org/node/680386, you'll see that integration with views is a highly desired feature! That's why there's so much activity on it! The good news is that (look at this comment: http://drupal.org/node/680386#comment-6480250) there's actually a patch applied to version 7.x-4.0-alpha6 of the Webform module, so you can test this new integration functionality.

Let us know if it works well!

That sounds very encouraging and I look forward to Weform 4's release but in the meantime with Webform 3, is it possible to use Webform Tokens to accomplish the same thing? – user5013 Feb 25 '13 at 23:26

Webform 4.X is the way to go if you want to use views.

If you are only trying to change the column headers/info (or don't want to upgrade to 4) you can use the provided hooks: theme_webform_results_table_header & theme_webform_results_table.

Webform includes 'webform.api.php' in the module that doesn't include working code, but rather documents all of the hook usage in webform.

I am trying update the contents of the table itself, not the column headers. Is it possible to use webform tokens as a possible work around with Webform 3? – user5013 Feb 25 '13 at 23:25
