I know there is a way around for your task, using your email list manager conjoined with a web form builder such as 123ContactForm (a fine tool I've been using for a year on several of my projects). Here are the steps to it:
First, you need to define unique identifiers for each of your database entries (e.g. person's name). Insert those identifiers in your email manager.
Second, create your email form with a set of pre-filled fields that will contain those identifiers. The URL of the form will look something like http://www.123contactform.com/sf.php?s=123contactform-201140&control1111111=John&control2222222=Doe.
Last, synch your form with a WebHooks script that will fill in your database/spreadsheet based on those identifiers.
It may sound complicated, but it isn't. Here is the info you need on creating forms with preset values.
Let me know how it works for you.
