Hi. I've got a base in AirTable which I need to be able others to update through a form in fillout. I only want specific fields to be updated by the form. In the case as shown in the screenshot I only want people to change the status and no other fields. When I chose to limit who can edit fields such as name, email etc to nobody but leave the status field as editable by anyone the form doesn't update that field. 
I only manage to update the status field when all other fields are editable but then it will obviously create an issue that will allow people to edit the base. The idea is that people would report status updates by the form and they would need to see certain fields of the form.  Could anyone point me to some resources on how to accomplish that? Thank you.

It sounds like you want to be able to display values from your table from certain fields while only allowing them to update a single "Status" field.  If so, try using the "Heading" display element and select the field you want to display:

For example, here's a form that displays the value of the "Name" field:

And here's how it looks with the data:
