  1. make it possible to timestamp a table when it was last updated for use in datapages reports

    It would be nice to have a datestamp for when a table was last updated or imported. I import a dataset every week into a table and have to manually go to the datapage report to inform the users last updated on MM/DD/YY. Sometimes it is different language reports and the date update needs to happen on all the language versions of the datapages.

  2. Need notifications for "failed" scheduled tasks.

    I had a very important scheduled task in a app that ran fine every day - then one day it failed for no apparent reason. I was not made aware of the failure and that caused us problems.

    Seems logical if a scheduled task fails there should be a notification someplace - email, or message, or something - only way to see a fail is to open every task and look at history on each one

  3. Allow tasks to be run by people other than administrators.

    it seems if I am an administrator and I want to grant access to somebody to run tasks (both tasks and scheduled on demand tasks) I should be able to do that. Not sure why tasks require to be run by a administrator

  4. Add additional parameters to calendar datapage

    The current calendar datapage function is limited to having 1 parameter. This is very restrictive and it would be useful to be able use multiple parameters.

  5. Create a built in capability to manage email/text communication

    At this time there is no way to associate email/text communication to the underlying tables, triggers, and data pages. This communication is absolutely vital to a developer's ability to maintain document where inter-functional communication is occurring within an APP. All that is needed is for caspio to provide a way to export just the names of the tables, triggers, and datapages as separate flat files via Excel. We can create the relational data page(s) ourselves

  6. Drag and Drop interface

    Make the interface more drag and drop to make building more visual than form driven.

  9. Label positioning

    Add the option of placing the label to the right of the field(not only left or top). This is good for RTL languages

  10. 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…

  11. simulator in tasks

    I want to suggest to have a simulator in the task, this is different that validating.
    The simulation would show if the task is going to do exactly what I want to.

  13. An option for files to keep the same Caspio URL when updating.

    Option to keep the same Caspio URL when updating existing files (images) in the table so that when you change the image in Caspio, it will also update on any website the image is attached to without having to update the code on that website.

  14. multiple select autocomplete

    I've had the issue that some of my lists on my multiple select options are really long and its hard for the user to be searching the answers they want, it would be easier if they could filter the answers by writing what they are looking for

  15. Support for Bootstrap or other design frameworks.

    Though Caspio Bridge Styles are great, the support of a design/style framkework would be great, as it supports the purpose of Caspio with is rapid programming. BTW - EVERYBODY has Bootstrap or the likes these days.

  16. Data Page Setup - Wizard Page List

    Have the option to see a list of the wizard pages on the left / righthand side to allow user to go to a direct page, instead of having to click next or previous if the user only wants to go to a single page.

  19. System timestamp available in table triggers and Tasks

    It would be extremely helpful to have the user's system date/time available as a timestamp in a table's trigger (under the 'Data' section) and in Tasks so it could update a field. Using a UTC date/time value doesn't help if you have clients all over the globe because there then needs to be a calculation to adjust the timestamp for the local user. If the user's system timestamp could just be used in a trigger it would solve that issue.
