  1. 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?

      • 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…

          • 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…

            • Add ability to disable/display field of the record on Grid Edit form based on rule

              We can set rule in submission form for single record edit.
              We would like to edit the record in Grid Edit form, but to disable the field entry if certain criteria is met.

                • documentation

                  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!

                  • Download files in xlsx instead of xls

                    I would like to export/download (automatically through datahub) some files in a current MS Excel format in de backoffice. It's only possible in .xls now, but I would prefer .xslx.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                            • Cancel Button on all DataPages

                              To create the best interface for users, I have tried different ways of navigation between DataPages. Sometimes users will open a DataPage just to realize that the DataPage was not the right one. An obvious thing would be a cancelclose button on all datapages which does just that: Close the datapage without having to navigate back in the browser "Back-button". Setting the destination wil not solve thes issue as I want to open the possibility to submit several submissons before closing, and also to close without submitting anything at all.

                              • Time Out & Redirection - Please allow 8 hours of authentication ( a full work day ) before forcing new login

                                Employees use (any system), but the authentication rules force them to login twice per day (unless you give them 12 or 24 hour access). It would seem to make sense to allow for a 8 hour authentication rule before forcing them to log back in, since most employees work an 8 hour day. - Unless there is some way to customize this that I am unaware of!

                                Currently the rules are:
                                15 minutes
                                30 minutes
                                1 hour
                                2 hours
                                6 hours
                                12 hours
                                1 day
                                3 days
                                1 week

                                  • Filter a View by comparing two fields like a calculation.

                                    For example. I would like to be able to create a view by comparing two separate fields.

                                    1. Field1 Equal to Field2...
                                    2. Field1, Greater Than or Equal to Field2..
                                    3. [Sale_Price] - [Cost] < "500"
                                    4. [Last_Import_Date] = Max of [Last_Import_Date]

                                    Examples, COST vs SALE PRICE. Create a filter that allows me to show

                                      • action

                                        The rule list allows only one action per item. For example, if I have a column for transaction type (Field = TransType) and the options available for this field using dropdown menu are "Cash", "Bank Transfer", "USD Cheque" and "HKD Cheque". Then, lets say I have a field named "Cheque#" which should be shown only if "USD Cheque" and "HKD Cheque" are selected as TransType.

                                        So I create a rule that if TransType = Cash, then hide "Cheque#". Then I want to add another rule that if TransType = Bank Transfer, then again hide "Cheque#" but this time it won't…
