  1. Caspio SQL Query

    Would be nice if there was an SQL query for Caspio whereby you can write SQL statements to manipulate data in your Caspio database. In addition, be able to schedule jobs to run SQL query. Furthermore, it would also be great to trigger queries based on insert or update or records. See attached.

      • Add SQL capability when creating a new View.

        Add SQL capability when creating a new View. I believe this would be very useful to generate aggregate totals like:"Max(), Sum(), Exists" and concatenation of values. This view should also be available for scheduled downloads .

        • implement Front End Data Validation

          Customizable validation for data submission forms and update reports and forms would be very nice.

          i.e...
          0 < DOBmo < 13
          0 < DOBday < 32
          1900 < vehicleYear < DATEPART(year, now())
          FirstName (Not Like "*[!((a-z) or (0-9))]*")
          999,999 < Phone < 10,000,000,000

          • Download table/datapage properties

            Have the ability to download the table preoperties like fields, records, size, last modified etc. or datapage properties. This is available when you click on datapages or tables, but it would be nice to have it downloadable.

            • Parameters in data source

              DataPage_1 -> DataSource = tblData_[@authfield:AccountID]

              AccountID = 1 -> DataSource = tblData_1
              AccountID = 2 -> DataSource = tblData_2

              This would streamline deployment of cloned apps tremendously.

                • Sequence generator needed for key data items.

                  Using Autonumber is not desirable to use as a key-field in a table as a related field to another.
                  First, Caspio allows the user to re-number, although with warnings, it could still corrupt your database with orphan links left behind. Also you can only create a join with another like "autonumber" (can't use a number field).

                  Suggest a fix for above, or create a new sequence generator similar to what Oracle has.

                    To avoid the issue with orphan records in this case, I suggest creating the relationship between the tables and enable “Enforce Referential Integrity” option. By enabling this option, the system won’t allow the Autonumber to be reset.
                    More information about the relationship can be found at http://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/relationships/

                    It is possible to create a join between “Autonumber” and “Number” by specify the number type to be “Integer” in the table design.
                    More information about the table data type can be found at http://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/data-types/

                  • Create an autonumber field that will use a prefix, such as Proj100

                    Autonumbering with a alphanumeric prefix would be a nice feature.

                            • Render Datapages as PDF

                              Caspio needs to include a PDF output option to bring it up to spped with other applications in this area.

                              As an Destination option, Caspio should provide a flag that allows a Datapage to display in PDF.
                              This can be applied with a simple html to pdf conversion tool.

                              Example.
                              Create a HTML Datapage which receives parameters and styled as a document.
                              Choose this data page as the destination page (Tick for PDF) and the page/pdf should Open/Display as pdf when called by the browser.

                                This feature is available but there is no UI for it. It’s implemented at no cost for Corporate accounts but there is nominal fee for other paying accounts. We plan to offer a UI in an upcoming release.

                                • Provide a feature for datapages that allows the creation of a beginning and ending balance.

                                  I have a datapage that produces a monthly statement. I am able to create an aggregate to display the total of items listed on the statement. But I'm not able to do a "Beginning balance" - the total either a) at the end of the prior month or b) the total of all items for that client prior to the monthly statement (these would be essentially the same, just different ways of getting the data).

                                  What would be very useful is a type of aggregation field that can be constrained by date, or other field. Then I could use it…

                                    • Keep the formatting

                                      I wish the Caspio program would allow users to download the exact same report as seen on the report display to MS. Excel. For example I have spent time formatting my data elements as a percentage , or with an extra decimal place, or currency as dollars with the two extra decimal places. However once I downloaded the report I notice that all formatting is gone. I am fully aware that I can make format changes in MS Excel but I feel like I am doing the work twice I wish that these items would export automatically.

                                      • Allow datapage elements configured as Display Only to be referenced in javascript like you can reference other elements.

                                        Sometimes a developer may want to display, and not allow edit, a piece of data from a previous datapage. This displayed datapage element may need to be referenced from javascript which I don't believe is possible now. All other configurations of elements can be referenced, even hidden elements, but now the display only element.

                                        • make output of counting functions be treated as float type instead of integers.

                                          Currently, using aggregate functions such as Count will return an integer, meaning if you attempt to calculate something of the form of Colunt_non_Blank/Count, you will get 0 since both are integers. This seems like an unnecessary limitation. I was able to bypass by multiplying by both number by 1.0, but this seems cumbersome and should not be required to perform such a calculation.
