  1. Add "Columns Displayed" to Reports

    With a tabular report, it would be cool if the end user could turn on/off certain columns from the results display, much like the "Columns Displayed" gear option that can be found in the top right corner of the admin sections (i.e., DataPages, Tables, etc.) with the Caspio account. We run into issues with people wanting too much data on the results page, but it would be great if we could define what columns are available in the report setup and then let them turn columns on/off as needed. Just a thought!

    • Specify tooltip for image / record from column

      It would be great if it was possible to specify a tooltip for a field which is diplayed in a datapage.

        • Fix the logic tab editor for date comparisons - Today and before/after now

          Currently this is broken when using the Logic Tab editor in a datapage report. If you attempt to use the operators (Today and/or before/after Now) using the Logic Tab, this will fail because the operators/values keep resetting to the same.

          You have to use the original way of adding criteria. (http://howto.caspio.com/faq/reports-datapages/how-to-add-today-to-after-now-or-next-x-days-criteria/)

          • mobile

            Could you make a format option within the "Display options" that says "Phone" or "Mobile Format" and allows the leading Zero to be displayed (it currently doesn't work that way). This would then allow users to click on the phone number from their mobile and it would dial automatically.

            • Add the ability to embed HTML in Labels.

              It would be nice to embed HTML into element labels. In order to open a modal screen by click on a word in a label (for a more descriptive meaning), I had to itterate through each element on the datapage and find the one that contains the text of my label, then change the innerHTML using Javascript.

              • Allow keyword parsing in a Search Field to be turned off

                When using the "Contains" comparison type in a Search Field the basic behavior is useful in many cases, but it can also be problematic. It would be nice to be able to choose whether or not what was entered would taken as a single Literal rather than Parsed.  

                Here is the issue in more detail.
                Contains | Does Not Contain
                Keyword is searched within a text field or a file name field. If multiple keywords are entered in the search field, AND operator is assumed between them. User can also provide a desired operator by entering it in ALL CAPS

                • Allow the Rules for fields in a Search Form to have the "Required" Action in the same way they do for a Submit Form.

                  In a Submit Form when you create a Rule it can have an Action to make a Field either Hidden, Disabled, or Required. On a Search Form the Required option is not available, but it would be nice to have. The option exists to directly set a Field to "Required" in both a Search or Submit Forms. It is just the functionality to so so dynamically via a Rule for a Field in a Search Form which is missing.

                    • SQL DISTINCT - Unique records from a field or set of fields

                      Add an option for a DataPage to generate a list (either Gallery or List) which displays unique values only. This is the equivalent of the SQL DISTINCT command and should be capable of being filtered (unique Zip codes in a single/set of states in a list of addresses) or the unique records from a set of fields - One instance of any records with first and last name being exactly the same.

                      • Need BCC: email distribution option available for notificaiton and submission

                        Currently there is a option to send submission and acknowledgement emails, but not BCC. It would be nice to have a BCC option as some senior managers want to be copied without them being on the email distribution.

                          • Allow a horizontal gap between header and first row of data in tables

                            For style reasons it would be great to be able to have a blank separator between the bottom of the header row and the top of the first row of data in tables. Presently, CSS margin code has no effect, and while padding in the header helps, it does not solve the problem - particularly if the header is a contrasting block of color to the rest of the table. Thanks

                            • Give Calendar Report the ability to span a single event over multiple days

                              Can we please give the Calendar Report the ability to span a single event over multiple days? For example, if I am hosting an event from April 4th - April 6th, the Calendar will only display either the Start Date or the End Date. The calendar would be much more useful, and much more accurate, if the event was listed through April 4th, 5th and 6th. This would also give a much cleaner picture, and allow businesses a more accurate reporting when it comes to event/meeting dates.

                              • Dynamically change chart colours

                                Currently we have a bar chart that displays all the records in various status'. We would like to colour all "New" items as blue, "In Progress" as orange, etc. But, we can only pre-define colours in order. So if there are no "New" records, then "In Progress" will show up as blue because it is the first column.

                                • Convert submission data to Plain Text

                                  Currently, submission data is not converted to Plain Text, which can cause text errors in the Table where the submission data is stored.

                                  For example, if somebody goes into Microsoft Word, and copies quotation symbols “” or bullet points •, pastes it into a Caspio Submission form, and presses submit, the data is not converted into plain text, and the result is a � symbol or "&#65533" in the table data.

                                  However, if the text were converted to Plain Text during the submission process, the quotations would be converted from “” to "" and the bullet point • would be…

                                  • Add NavBar Menu datapage

                                    Currently we are using an HTML datapage to add a navbar menu on every webpage. The reason for this is to not duplicate code and have the ability to dynamically change the menu with different user authentications. Unfortunately, we cannot authenticate the navbar menu differently than the datapage on the webpage, so we had to resort to authenticating all datapages the same and re-direct the user manually if their authentication doesn't match.
                                    It would be really convenient to have a navbar menu datapage that you could add menu buttons, drop downs, etc. And assign URL's to the buttons for redirecting.…

                                    • Add cascading option in result page

                                      This is really an essential feature when making a report. For example, based on "class name", the "class room" from another table should be able to be displayed in the result page.

                                      • Field populated from a list should be available as a parameter in a calculated field.

                                        A field should be able to populated from a list and be used as a parameter in a calculated field as well. This is a basic expectation, but is not possible due to a Caspio limitation.

                                        • should add a bulk file upload function similar to social networks like Facebook

                                          for example in a real estate application when a property owner needs to upload up to ten files of his advertized property and he wants to do it all at once...
