I think "active" is used pretty commonly to refer to fields which can accept
input, which seems to be what you're after.

Subject: Need another word for "enterable"
I need some help. A techy SME type insists that "enterable"
is an acceptable term for use in technical documentation.
I'd like to use something else, but can't come up with anything.
Here's an example:
All enterable fields should have a white background.
Is there a better way of saying this?
We're documenting software programming standards.
