# Working with Non-spatial Tables
Non-spatial tables are often a key part of a survey project. The tables can be used either on their own to add new data or linked to a spatial layer, e.g. when linking multiple photos or records to one feature.
We recommend using GeoPackage format to save your non-spatial table. With this format, you can collaboratively edit the data and track changes.
# QGIS project configuration
Ensure you have enabled editing and browsing of your non-spatial table in Project Properties in QGIS.
# Browse, search and edit non-spatial data in Mergin Maps Input
Non-spatial tables can be browsed, searched and edited in Layers in the More tab.
Choose the non-spatial layer from the list in Layers. Tap it to open the attributes table. Here, you can browse and search your data.
To add a new record, select Add Feature and fill in the form.
Selecting an individual record will open the form related to the feature.
