  1. Cannot Save Chart as Image

    Have datapages deployed as Graphs. Users want to export, print or merely save these graphs as images so that they can be used in other applications (such as including a graph in a presentation). However, when right-click the graph and save as image, the image is NOT exported. In fact, in IE an error is thrown. Only in Chrome can I get the Graph to print. It seems strange that simple Windows standard functionality is not supported. This is a poor implementation of this functionality for Graph DataPages within Caspio. I have actually opened a Help Ticket for this, but…

    • Ability for App users to import data into tables

      Ability to create a datapage for App users to import data into tables without using a scheduled task or having to log into caspio. App users can add data manually; why not have the ability for admin level users to import directly into the tables?

      • Multi Language posibility

        I like to have the posibility to create a multi language app. Now I can only supply my customers with our native language (dutch), but for our international clients I want to supply an english portal. I cannot set this with the current labeling system in the tables. Is this possible?

        • allow views on views, so the data source design can effectively become a bit more "object-oriented" and more maintainable

          and also allow "full SQL" definition of views - set unions, set differences etc.; plus creation of combination / concatenation fields in views; would be great in itself but also provide solutions to some of the front end limitations like drop downs can't be sorted on some other field etc.

            • File submission renaming

              There should be a way for files to be renamed upon submission based on a field value. For example, the autonumber or field id could become appended to the file name as a prefix.

              This way when files are bulk downloaded it would be clear which record they were part of.

              • Allow users to be able to select the colors of their charts

                In the pie charts, it would be nice to be able to choose colors related to the values being charted. The colors Caspio chose aren't very pleasing and there is no way to change them apparently. I would like red, yellow, and green in my pie chart.

                • allow me to select an autocomplete value field that is separate from the field filtered on

                  When adding an autocomplete field to a form, I would like to be able to select the table/view, the field to filter on AND the field value to store in the record. So that, for example, if I am using an autocomplete field to let someone choose a person, I should be able to choose the 'full_name' field for autocomplete to scan, but 'person_id' should be the value that gets stored in the record when it is submitted.

                  • create a feature for bulk enablement of "deployed" on data pages

                    - sophisticated apps have a large number of pages and the manual process of "turning on" the deployment of each page can become mistake-prone, once you take into account that some pages may be "WIP" and you don't want to always expose all pages to the web yet....

                    • Add an async form processing option that allows a background datapage (or chain) and parameter cascade to act like a trigger

                      Right now, the system has what I would call "Foreground Datapages" - they are sequentially accessed in full view of the client.

                      I'd like to see the addition of "Background Datapages" - these are asynchronous pages that must start with a Foreground Datapage as a destination, can chain to however many background datapages one wishes to chain, and then returns a Foreground Datapage destination with parameters to navigate to.

                      This would alleviate the javascript cludge required to use a single datapage form to update multiple tables, improve the user experience of working with these forms, and simulate the activity of…

                      • Pre-POST ping for Zapier

                        It would be great if we could GET data from a table before POSTing using the Zapier Integration.

                        This would allow Zapier to work with tables that can't use Autonumber for their Primary key.

                        i.e.
                        GET tableName.primaryKey.max
                        POST tableName.primaryKey = max + 1

                        • bulk insert

                          the grid edit is so useful for updating records and the bulk edit further improves productivity. What if we could mark records, much like bulk edit/delete, and have new records inserted into a second table passing key fields from the 1st table along with default values to populate the 2nd table records. The 2nd table could subsequently use the very efficient grid edit for changes/updates.

                          For example: a teacher has a list of students, rather than use line item action (i.e. "add grade") to insert one grade at a time, select all the students still active(enrolled) and "add grade" for…

                          • PDF file preview and view

                            It would be a great help if Caspio allows access to PDF files online in addition to download. This is of great help to put user documentation on line for access by customers and service technicians. One example is user manuals for a new product. A 2-D QR bar code with that URL line will takes the user directly to that PDF document.

                            • calendar

                              It would be extremely helpful to be able to put records with several different date fields on a single Calendar.

                              For example, a table has fields for ‘Date_Created', Ship_Date', and ‘Received_Date'. I need to have a single calendar that puts each of these dates (if there is a value in that field) using another field's value (‘Description’ in this case, to identify the calendar ‘even't) in the same calendar.

                              For example. A record in this table with a Field:Description value of 'Oushak Rug' could have:

                              Date_Created: 05/01/15
                              Ship_Date: 07/06/15
                              Finish_Date: 09/03/15

                              I need the value 'Oushak Rug' to show up…

                                      Documentation is key to good database design. There is no where in Caspio to document what I'm doing for future staff. Each Data Page should have a description field that is optionally displayed as a column in the Data Pages view, so that one can scan all data pages within a folder and read the purpose of each. Thanks!

                                      • CONCATENATE for a calculation field.

                                        It would be great if there was a possibility to use an access style Concentration in a calculation or merge field.

                                        '[@field:a]' & ' some text ' & '[@field:b]' & ' more custom text.

                                        There is a way to do this with stuff but it is a bit more complex.

                                        A little icing on the cake would be to make it more dynamic with if statements or case functions.

                                        Thanks for continuing to create better functionality and for taking our suggestions on improvements.
