to add the functionality of multiple record submission
It would be useful if you could submit multiple records by clicking on one submission button
A much needed functionality. Requested 7 years ago. Planned 5 years ago and nothing so far... Simply amazing.
this would be all I need to sign on to the platform.
We are definitely in need of this for our projects!! I'm not sure if this is what was originally suggested, but we need a "bulk add" feature much like the bulk edit with the tabular report. We want the ability to search and select multiple records from our master table and then submit new data in bulk to a separate table. Currently, we are trying to come up with a workaround, but I'm not seeing a way to pass parameters via a bulk edit or to create a multiple-record form.
This would be extremely beneficial for my application as well. I am currently trying to figure out an acceptable work around.
Caspio, do you have any update on this?
it is 2017, so no solutions to this?
I've needed this, and have had to work around this limitation, many times since we signed up as a customer. It's been planned since August of 2014? Wow, implementation turnaround times must be really slow with Caspio. Either scrap it, or do it....
This something that our office is greatly in need of. Currently we enter in, using the data page end user interface, identical child records for many different parent records. But if there was a way to select all corresponding parent records and submit one identical child record to each, that would be wonderful. Thank you.
Has this been done yet? I have multiple Leads that I want to convert to "Deals" and then edit the parameters in grid mode as well.. I believe I have seen a JS solution around here but I agree, this would be a great addition!
similar to this ...bulk insert ideabox?
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 all - passing the student id, course and a dummy value for letter grade to be edited in a grid report
another example: I need to add multiple dates to one event. I use a form to select a date, and then submit. Mouse clicks could be cut in half if instead:
select a date
date added to queue
select another date
date added to queue
submit all dates in queue
submitting once instead of individually
Another example would be for tracking attendance: 1 record per person. The form need only be filled out once (date, time, event, etc), but the record can be applied to many client Id's (1 record per person) rather than one at a time.
This would allow users to add a record once rather than once for every client.

This feature would be big for us -- we have projects with multiple sub-components, and would like to be able to enter all of the sub-components at once. It's possible right now as a workaround that we can upload several records at once via Excel, but that's not ideal.
Another example of this is an invoice application. Typically, you have an invoice header table with an invoice detail table. It would be nice to able to enter all the line items on (detail) on one screen.
What they are really talking about is an editable grid. I used to make these with ASP Classic many many years ago. Check out http://docs.codecharge.com/studio50/html/index.html?http://docs.codecharge.com/studio50/html/UserGuide/Builders/Builders.html
Great idea...we use Caspio form in our site to collect registration of a no competivive distance 8 km walking.
It could be useful have a form for a group that would enter registration for all their component instead once each.

I realize this post is old, but I would love this functionality an example would be similar to the one made by the admin:
1 of my Datapages is a test score submission. Usually hundreds of scores need to be entered at a time. The form is only 4 fields for each score, but users need to click submit and click the link for the form repeatedly. The repetition could be reduced if I could allow the form to repeat itself 3 or 4 or even more times.

I think this would be wonderful. I have needed this feature several times.
The way I envision it would be to allow for multiple choices in a list box, and then a tickbox to create a new record for every choice, keeping the input from other input fields constant.
This would be great!

EXAMPLE 1: I would like to create a single submission form that contains seven data input fields. The data entered into each input field needs to be saved to its own table (seven separate tables) when a single submission is pressed.
EXAMPLE 2: I would like to be able to edit data from multiple data sources instead of just one, when creating a new view.
Hope this helps, thank you for considering this.

Could you provide one or more scenarios?
I can think of an example, but want to make sure my understating captures your idea.
There could be a ribbon form (fields listed horizontally) repeated a few times on a page with a label such as "Enter the details of all your Children" (one child per line). Each child to become a separate record.
