  1. Ability to add SQL to the table formula field for cross table calculations (like you can in a DataPage formula)

    Triggered actions are a great feature on their own and work well for new projects. However, they do not replace an SQL statement and only work for new records/actions.

    Someone else already commented this on a previous request (http://ideabox.caspio.com/forums/164206-caspio-bridge/suggestions/16414099-can-we-add-sql-to-the-table-formula-field-for-cros) that was marked "complete".

    • Copy/Move Triggered Actions

      the ability to copy or move the Triggered Actions from testing table to live table, since Caspio team advise to run the Triggered Actions on a testing table first and sometimes the Triggered Actions is complicated and there is a possibility to rebuild the Triggered Actions with missing pieces or rule.

      • triggered actions "on update" fired on bulk edit/update.

        triggered actions seems to be great idea.
        but worthless if it is fired only on single update /for example through details page/

        • Add an new Triggered Action selector

          It would be nice to have the ability to run a Triggered Action on only a single field being Updated. In this case I have a table which has a field which can contain the ID number for another user. This field might start out blank and can later be edited. None of the current selectors (less than, blank, exists, etc..) can accommodate a random value that you don't have any idea in advance what it might be. Might it be possible to have "Changed, or Unchanged" meaning compare the new value to the old value or lack of and…

          • Allow editing across multiple Tables in View

            Currently only one Table per View can be edited. This forces designers to create more DataPages then necessary to work around this shortfall. By allowing multiple Tables to be edited, designers could reduce the overall DataPage count.

            • Add file type to email triggers

              It would be beneficial to also have the "file" type field be sent as an attachment in the email triggers. This way, a user can essentially submit emails with an attachment.

              • include a text field which can support 64000k plus text

                currently having a trigger for concatinating two fields but gives error of incompatible ntext.

                my trigger is like this

                SET a(64000) = concatenate a(64000) ';' b(255)

                • Allow importing values into List datatype fields

                  Currently, there is no way to bulk upload into this datatype via the Import feature in the bridge, even if the data is formatted right. Such table fields are simply invisible upon import, which makes it cumbersome to convert existing tables built before this feature was rolled out to utilize this leaner option.

                  • Use views in triggers

                    You can currently only reference tables when building a trigger. Adding the ability to reference Views from triggers would be very helpful, rather than having to rebuild a view's functionality in the Trigger.

                    • Option to create Formulas inside Views.

                      For example:
                      I have Users and Roles tables. One to may relationship from Roles to Users but I would like to have a dropdown that reads Username (Role) but that is not possible unless we could have the ability to create Formulas in our views.

                      I think this will increase usability a lot.

                      • Export photos

                        I want to scheduled a daily task to export all new files which were uploaded that day. Currently I receive a daily file of the data in my tables, but not files. For my business, I really need an incremental file with files (in my case photos) for Caspio to be more efficient.

                        • Make it easier to reorder View fields

                          For Views with many fields from many tables, it is very helpful to arrange the fields in a logical order, especially when adding a new column which by default goes to the end. At the moment, one has to use up and down arrows for this, which is very clunky and time-consuming for large Views. Please could you consider replacing the current fields control with one that allows the selected item to be dragged to a new position in the list.

                          • Default table fields

                            How about having a global option to set default field names and types so everytime I create a new table, all these fields are automatically created.

                            For example, I always use ID(autonumber), Created_on(Timestamp), Created_by(Text), etc.. in all my tables but I need to create them all or have an empty copy of the table and duplicate it, it would be nice to have a default table fields location to define "common" fields.

                            • Add filter Criteria for Previous Day | Previous Week | Previous Month | Previous Year

                              It's not possible to create a view for a date range that has already past.

                              Current Year|Month|Week|Day are all nice, but not effective when looking back at data.

                              • run a trigger after record is saved in the table

                                We need to create a record in the child table when a new record is inserted in the parent table. Since triggers operates with #inserted record (which is not inserted in the table yet) child record cannot be created (we use referential integrity)

                                  • Copying the record from parent table to the child table and triggered action run in child table.

                                    Sometimes we need to split the tables in some sections by creating a new child tables. But when we insert records from parent tables to child tables it is not possible to trigger an action because of currently triggered actions are limited to a maximum of one nested level. This limitation causes the app builders to create complex applıcations. Caspio needs to raise of number nested level otherwıse it is pointless to subscribe to this system.

                                    • Enhance the View Criteria by using the trigger interface.

                                      Instead of just having the current, kludgy view builder (that has very limited criteria capabilities when it comes to comparing dates in two tables) allow a user to opt to use the Trigger builder interface for building joins and setting criteria. This would dramatically increase the view building functionality.

                                      • Attach Object

                                        There is a way to detach an object from a specific App but there isn't a way to attach it to a specific App. You can Share the object but sometimes you simply want to move something to a specific App as part of house keeping.

                                        • Add the ability to perform "star" ratings for reviewing a table entry.

                                          Today the user has the ability to rate a table entry using numbers, but how about what is common today for rating (like hotels, travel suggestions, etc.) is a 5 star rating.
