  1. Deny specific words to fields

    People are sometimes submitting our forms by giving Donald Duck as their name field value. I think it would it be a good idea to be able pre-moderate some of these most common "false for sure" values.

    I have tried to solve this with rules but fields that I need to control are required. It seems like I can't disable users to execute their form in anyway.

  2. calendar

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to put records with several different date fields on a single Calendar.

    For example, a table has fields for ‘DateCreated', ShipDate', and ‘Received_Date'. I need to have a single calendar that puts each of these dates (if there is a value in that field) using another field's value (‘Description’ in this case, to identify the calendar ‘even't) in the same calendar.

    For example. A record in this table with a Field:Description value of 'Oushak Rug' could have:

    DateCreated: 05/01/15
    Ship
    Date: 07/06/15
    Finish_Date: 09/03/15

    I need the value 'Oushak…

  4. bulk insert

    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…

  6. Multi Language posibility

    I like to have the posibility to create a multi language app. Now I can only supply my customers with our native language (dutch), but for our international clients I want to supply an english portal. I cannot set this with the current labeling system in the tables. Is this possible?

  7. PDF file preview and view

    It would be a great help if Caspio allows access to PDF files online in addition to download. This is of great help to put user documentation on line for access by customers and service technicians. One example is user manuals for a new product. A 2-D QR bar code with that URL line will takes the user directly to that PDF document.

  8. documentation

    Documentation is key to good database design. There is no where in Caspio to document what I'm doing for future staff. Each Data Page should have a description field that is optionally displayed as a column in the Data Pages view, so that one can scan all data pages within a folder and read the purpose of each. Thanks!

  9. allow me to select an autocomplete value field that is separate from the field filtered on

    When adding an autocomplete field to a form, I would like to be able to select the table/view, the field to filter on AND the field value to store in the record. So that, for example, if I am using an autocomplete field to let someone choose a person, I should be able to choose the 'fullname' field for autocomplete to scan, but 'personid' should be the value that gets stored in the record when it is submitted.

  10. Add an async form processing option that allows a background datapage (or chain) and parameter cascade to act like a trigger

    Right now, the system has what I would call "Foreground Datapages" - they are sequentially accessed in full view of the client.

    I'd like to see the addition of "Background Datapages" - these are asynchronous pages that must start with a Foreground Datapage as a destination, can chain to however many background datapages one wishes to chain, and then returns a Foreground Datapage destination with parameters to navigate to.

    This would alleviate the javascript cludge required to use a single datapage form to update multiple tables, improve the user experience of working with these forms, and simulate the activity of…

  11. Pre-POST ping for Zapier

    It would be great if we could GET data from a table before POSTing using the Zapier Integration.

    This would allow Zapier to work with tables that can't use Autonumber for their Primary key.

    i.e.
    GET tableName.primaryKey.max
    POST tableName.primaryKey = max + 1

  12. Add ability to disable/display field of the record on Grid Edit form based on rule

    We can set rule in submission form for single record edit.
    We would like to edit the record in Grid Edit form, but to disable the field entry if certain criteria is met.

  14. Cancel Button on all DataPages

    To create the best interface for users, I have tried different ways of navigation between DataPages. Sometimes users will open a DataPage just to realize that the DataPage was not the right one. An obvious thing would be a cancelclose button on all datapages which does just that: Close the datapage without having to navigate back in the browser "Back-button". Setting the destination wil not solve thes issue as I want to open the possibility to submit several submissons before closing, and also to close without submitting anything at all.

  16. include more than one field in grouping headers

    When grouping, only the field that is selected for grouping is displayed in "header". However, other fields are available to display in the header of the group that are common to the grouping field. E.g. Car repair/services. A service is needed on a car. The car name is used for grouping, but also the model, year, color, VIN are also attributes of the car, rather then service. The various services are displayed under each car. In the current set up, only one of the car-related fields, model, would be in the header. It would be nice to have model, year,…

  17. action

    The rule list allows only one action per item. For example, if I have a column for transaction type (Field = TransType) and the options available for this field using dropdown menu are "Cash", "Bank Transfer", "USD Cheque" and "HKD Cheque". Then, lets say I have a field named "Cheque#" which should be shown only if "USD Cheque" and "HKD Cheque" are selected as TransType.

    So I create a rule that if TransType = Cash, then hide "Cheque#". Then I want to add another rule that if TransType = Bank Transfer, then again hide "Cheque#" but this time it won't…

  19. It would be great if a table field could be set with a default value or do a calculation on update.

    If you use importing to get data into a table you can't interact with the data without manual intervention. That defeats the purpose of automatic importing or importing at al really.

    have a notes field to be able to describe the intended use of each / various tables /datapages/views etc. As you have more and more tables and datapages it gets more difficult to figure out what each is actually there for
