  1. Allow the count of the number of times that the List - String is selected in a table

    Currently you cannot count the number of times a List - String is selected in a table. Assume the List - String has 10 options and there are 5 records in the table. So if a user chooses 3 out of the 10 options in each record, you need the answer of 3 x 5 records, the COUNT would be 15.

  2. Application Parameters In TASKS

    It would be great to be able to use Application Paramters in TASKS.

    For instance, we will want to generate reports on a pre-set basis (e.g. daily, weekly, etc) to be sent from a particular email that's used application-wide and to another particular email that's used application-wide. FromEmail and SendReportsToEmail would be the application parameters.

    But when I try to put the application parameters into the task input fields, they won't validate. I can use them in DataPages, e.g. for password recovery and submission acknowledgements. Very frustrating to not be able to use them in tasks as well.

  3. Show the Type of Datapage within the main App and Datapage listings view.

    I am constantly having to open a datapage to see what kind of form, report, calendar, etc. that it is. Please show this information within the main App listings of the datapage properties available. This is in the donut for the "Columns Displayed" for viewing where you can show the date created, authentication name, date last updated, etc.

  4. Enhance User Logs so datapage usage and geographic location can be included

    Improving user logs to have datapage usage information, besides adding the feature of creating usage graphics from user log information
    Geographic location would be another nice feature.
    This will provide the ability to add analytics analysis to determine and correlate favorite features from users in our Caspio applications

  5. Create 'self-sufficient' copy of an app

    At the moment when you copy 'duplicate' an app from the admin panel it creates a copy of the app and updates the table names with "1". However, the triggers are not updated. This leads to the dangerous situation that a user could be modifying a copy of an app, but actually impacting their original data. I'd like to suggest that users are given the option to create a 'self-sufficient' app that updates all the references and triggers within the app to use the copied data instead of the original data. For example, if a table is updated to

  7. Use Map as an input (ie add marker etc) & store location in Caspio field

    Ability to use the map as a data input source. I specifically would like to allow users to add a polygon or a line to a map and have the area or length returned and stored in a Caspio field.

    Currently the map mashup is being used as an "output or reporting only" fashion.

  8. Ability to programatically modify Application Parameters inside Caspio application

    Since the purpose of Application Parameters is to hold "application wide" parameters we should have the ability to set application parameters inside the application itself. This request is an expansion on the following IdeaBox request (http://ideabox.caspio.com/forums/164206-caspio-bridge/suggestions/34038961-include-app-parameters-in-api)

    A simple use case is to hold users specific "preferences" or other application level controls. You could use authentication parameters for preferences but simple access to them is not always possible. I wanted to use Application Parameters as a "licensing variable" to control access to various parts of the application dependent upon the feature set they "purchased" meaning all users registered to…

  9. A Better Way To Create Multi Step Forms

    The way Caspio has us create multi step forms creates numerous problems. First, the limited styling makes the form look very outdated. Next, there is no back button besides using browser history, which would inevitably submit an unwanted record.

  10. allow for an ODBC connection to our Views so we can use our data in Excel O365.

    We really need an ODBC connection with Excel (O365) so we can create more elaborate pivot tables and analytical tools. I'm told the plug-ins for Excel are only applicable for 2007 and 2010. Need it for current version(s), please.

  11. The ability to hide empty fields in HTML Blocks.

    Currently, you can include fields into your report/details page and HIDE them if they do not contain a value. However, if you are using a HTML block, you cannot do this.

  14. Is there a way to be able to send a single message to multiple results

    Just to start I am very new to this! So a gopd place to start with the example database that is preloaded on my Caspio, (the surgeon one) and also the you tube video for the doctors database linked to word press. On this can I say that it's a fantastic guide for some new to this.

    I would like to give users the option to carry out a search and have a list of possible results that they can contact (in the video guide it would be doctors). Is there a way that the user could select suitable candidates…

  15. You need to allow implicit FTP site connections

    Hello
    We have a new FTP provider and I cannot make a new site because Caspio does not allow implicit FTP connections. This is really important because it prevents alot of customers from making a site connection.

  16. Allow us to create a dropdown that default's to user's data in first item listed

    It would be helpful to be able to customize the order of a dropdown list. Specifically if it could default to the user's information but also allow him the option of selecting another item from the dropdown if necessary.

  17. Create Formulas on Trigger Level

    The ability to manipulate data with a Formula on the Trigger level would be great.

    In example, say I receive a Full Name value and I need to split it into First and Last Name. Currently you can only do this by changing the First and Last Name fields to a formula on the TABLE level - consequently making these fields non-editable.

    If I was able to manipulate this data from a trigger, there wouldn't be any problems.

  18. SQL distinct for views

    Add a distinct records option to views. I'm aware of the requests at the report level, some / most of that need could be resolved if we could base that report on a view that has a "SELECT DISTINCT" enabled. Should be easy to implement?
