Wordpress Participants Database edit

Is it possible to edit the db in Participants Database plugin?  The following verbiage from
https://wordpress.org/plugins/participants-database/
would seem to imply that one can do this.
If not this route, is there a way to edit the contents of the Participants Database?
If no way, why not?  Is this considered information accessible only to the site visitor?

"Backend Record Editing
For your backend users, the ability to edit and enter new records is provided. This backend form can also contain administrative fields that won't be visible to the front-end (not logged-in) user, so organization staff can keep internal records of volunteer activities, availability, contributions, personal notes, etc.
The backend form is set up for rapid manual entry of multiple records, such as after a signup drive, doorbelling, or public event."

any database can be edited, provided you can find the file, and it's not password protected. (this one says it can be fully customized, so there should be edits in admin available) This is not a database "for" the visitor to create & use per-se, but an extra database to track visitors. There are many reasons to want another database that is not part of the WordPress installation...for example, contact forms CF7 has a database plugin to keep track of everyone who fills out the comment form on a site... this one is to track visitors who choose to "participate" in whatever program it is being used for...it was created for some political group monitoring and maintenance it looks like. I think the wording is a little deceptive.

And like I said, It is supposed to be fully customizable, yes. But the best place to get more information about a plugin, is really to go to the plugin authors, as  I don't think this would be a very widely used plugin. (I've never heard of it)  So you can read posts on their support forum here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/participants-database ...or you can try to contact the author on is site here: https://xnau.com/ ...and I don't see a Facebook page, (which always works best for me) but he does have a Google+ page linked to his site.

Hope that helps.
