  2. Allow copy, cut and paste of task/triggered action elements

    You might build a task and find you wish to use it as a triggered action instead - or vice versa.

    Currently you have to rebuild from scratch....where if you could copy and paste the different logic sections it would speed up the process

  3. Fix a bug where datasheet only displays date when other parts of timestamp still exist

    https://forums.caspio.com/topic/8867-insert-current-date-automatically/?do=findComment&comment=28142

    I implemented the above solution in order to insert just the date for a particular column. However, upon creating a task that included a date comparison on that column, we found that matches were not being made correctly because we didn't remove milliseconds as well. This took some trial and error since the datasheet was only showing the date part of the timestamp, even though milliseconds were not 000.

  4. Enable sql views, Functions and Stored Procedure

    I am new in Caspio but I loved it very much. I believe that Caspio will be perfect if it allows writing views, functions, and stored procedures just like SQL server, besides the easy way of generating views. I believe this would solve many issues for developers. It would also make Caspio appropriate for experts and non experts.
    Thanks

  5. Make the way TASKS are written optional graphical or text based

    Allow Task writing in text mode in stead of graphical blocks, so one can build an own library and copy past between tasks.

  6. Make it possible to edit formulas that are referenced

    Right now, if I want to edit a formula, Caspio won't let me, because there are references to the formula in tasks and triggers. I understand that this is an attempt to keep me from breaking the application. But as a consequence, to edit my formula, I now have to remove all the references to my formula across the application, change the formula, and then put those references back, praying I don't forget one or break something else in the process. That's a terrible way to accomplish this task.

  7. Add the capability to eliminate duplicate records in views where 2 tables are joined (with a check box).

    Joining 2 tables in Views needs a check box for "distinct" which would remove all duplicate records. This would allow the views to be easily used in tabular reports.

    "Distinct" is an important keyword in the underlying SQL Select command that should be easily added by Caspio. I have never needed an SQL Select without the "distinct" keyword in my programming experience.

    Views with no duplicate records could allow productive views created with other views as the data source. This should allow data to be filtered and messaged in almost any way which may reduce the need for all of…

  8. Allow filtering on List string fields

    When you want to filter a table, the List string fields don't appear in the "select field" dropdown list

  9. Many-to-Many Relationship

    Caspio can only handle a "one-to-one" or a "one-to-many" relationship in a table field. As a result, creating a "many-to-many" relationship requires creating a third table.

    Competing database programs (even those that are less developed than Caspio) allow a table field to easily hold references to multiple other entries in another table -- i.e. a native many-to-many field. (Webflow, Knack, Bubble are other ones I've looked at, and they all had it).

    Increasingly, the world works in a "many-to-many" way. For example...
    - A blog post will have many categories
    - An article may have multiple authors
    - An event…

  10. Add Function to display a message in Triggered actions

    It would be useful to be able to display a message when a triggered action runs and meets a certain condition.I could then inform the user of confirmation, actions required to rectify or warn them the other table did not update and why.

  11. I was getting duplicate name for the column header in table design view

    I think It was because I was swapping column headers with the same name and did not save in between each. the issue was that the first row for the first column would be the one highlighted in red. I nice feature would be to highlight the actual one.
    Also for it not to dumb all your work and just not let you save it....because when you do, all the work goes away, as another suggestion.. I should be good now thank you!

  12. Please allow incremental update of imported tables

    Once a large table is imported from Excel, please allow at least APPENDING to the table easily with only updated rows. For example, I have daily data and already imported historical data of 1M rows, I need just this month's rows.

  13. The Ability To Stop A Trigger If No Conditions Are Met

    The use of CASE and IF/THEN statements in Triggers are very helpful - however, it would be nice if there was a logic block or something where we can STOP the trigger from executing.

    In example, if you have an email trigger with a conditional CASE statement in the body, and none of the conditions meet the CASE statement, a blank email will still be sent out. If I could use the ELSE part of the statement will a STOP function, there would be no problem.

  14. Option to update record after email is sent

    There are a few instances where I have to send an email then update the record with a time stamp to show the email was sent so that we are not sending multiple emails.

    Caspio is pushing us to not use if statements but right now I have to for these. It would be great if we had an option to update a field after the email is sent successfully. If we could have that included in the email action then I could eliminate the If statements and hopefully increase the performance of my triggered action. An example of what…

  15. Provide a parameter for when a table was last updated.

    I update a certain table 1 time per week manually via import. After the import I need to enter 1, (or many) datapages that reference the table, and manually update HTML text field for "last updated MM-DD-YYYY).
    It would be nice to have system parameters for the tables that can give for example
    "last added record date"
    "last deleted record date"
    "last added or deleted record"
    or
    "last modified" (Any change to the data table)

  17. Add new formula fields in views with more than one table

    It would be great I could create formula fields in views (with more than one table). This could make it possible to use, combine or calculate data from multiple tables in a formula.

  18. Image file as URL

    Instead of uploading image files to each file field, the ability to pass an image url only as file parameter is easier and space saving.

  19. Freeze first column in a TABLE (not a datapage table)

    I'd like to be able to "freeze" the first column in a table, so that as I scroll across the table, I can always see the first column (which indicates the name of the record).

    Sometimes we have a lot of editing to do, and it's easiest to do it in the table. And sometimes, we want to copy the same info into a field for several records. But since we can't see the "Names" of the records (that are in the first column) as we scroll across, we can't accurately past info into the fields. If we could freeze…

  20. Run Tasks outside of Caspio Website

    I would like to see the ability to create a button/link to run a specific task inside of a Datapage. For example, I have many tasks that my staff need to run on demand. Currently, I have to set these tasks up to a schedule, or log in and run them on demand for my staff.

    If we had the option to add specific task buttons inside of datapages, or even a specific link that would trigger the task to run, then my staff could run these tasks as they complete their work.
