  1. 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.

  2. Report Filter

    Instead of two data pages to accomplish a dynamic filtered search on one page, just include the fields that can be filtered on the report just like the sort option. Even if it is a single filter field and filter value it would be better than nothing or having to using two data pages. If it could be completely dynamic like the designer datasheet view of tables in Caspio, that would be AWESOME!

  3. Can you introduce a WYSIWYG DataPage Editor in Design mode

    Can you introduce a WYSIWYG DataPage Editor in design mode where you can drag and drop elements: like views, reports, charts, geomaps, butttons, virtual groupby totals, images, text, etc.. in the header, footer and content area, incl. interactions between the elements.

  4. control the selectable days in the calendar pop-up

    it would be great to control which days of the week are valid selections and be able to grey-out invalid days.

  5. rules

    Allow to modify/evaluate the same field in more than one rule.

    I find it extremely limiting (and unnecessary) that I can only alter the behavior or a field with just one rule. If I need a rule that makes a field visible, and another that makes it required, I can't do that. Even with the help of sections, there are many things I cannot do. Plus, sections bring other limitations (some just aesthetic, but still, unnecessary), and when a Data Page has way too many sections, it breaks, literally.

  6. Create ability to allow for multi-select of primary keys.

    Multiselect is important and available through embed scripts but those are merely for text data type. There are many scenarios, CRM for example, where user is entering sales activities for a company and they want to choose multiple contacts for that company. Since a contact has a unique PK there is no way to choose more than 1 value since the table that stores the "Contact_ID" only stores a integer. There are complicated workarounds using arrays and looped insert functions but not having access to the SQL Server to do triggers or stored procedures places a limitation and puts the…

  7. implement Front End Data Validation

    Customizable validation for data submission forms and update reports and forms would be very nice.

    i.e...
    0 < DOBmo < 13
    0 < DOBday < 32
    1900 < vehicleYear < DATEPART(year, now())
    FirstName (Not Like "[!((a-z) or (0-9))]")
    999,999 < Phone < 10,000,000,000

  8. calendar

    Calendar Start & Finish Date. Two things. First, I think it would be awesome to have two date fields to choose from such as a "Start Date" and "Finish Date". (Time would also be great). And then display the event across the dates.

    Second, I think it would be nice to be able to adjust the day-of-week start day for week view. That way one could create an event that ran from Thursday to Tuesday with Thursday being the first displayed day.

  9. Allow datapage elements configured as Display Only to be referenced in javascript like you can reference other elements.

    Sometimes a developer may want to display, and not allow edit, a piece of data from a previous datapage. This displayed datapage element may need to be referenced from javascript which I don't believe is possible now. All other configurations of elements can be referenced, even hidden elements, but now the display only element.

  10. Increase the code editor window!

    It would sure be nice to have some real estate for editing code versus the tiny little window you provide. Further, please, oh please, support and implement tabs in the editor. Using spaces to help readability of code makes for a royal pain in the backside when editing. Come on - this window is very much reminiscent of a 90s code editor tool.

  12. Auto download data from List Report

    To download data from a List Report, it now takes 3 steps: 1. Click on Download data, 2. Double-click on (XML or CVS) file, 3. Click on "Open".

    It would be nice if there was an option in the Datapage setup that enabled automatic download and opened the file. In other words, when I launch the report it opens as an Excel file.

  13. Autosave details page like Gmail does; critical feature for longer, detailed Details page

    When I type an email in Gmail or enter a contact into Gmail contats, google autosaves my entries as I go. This is a life saver when I'm typing a long email and my browser freezes.

    My users use Caspio forms (details page of search and report) to document interactions with customers. Their business requires detailed documenation. They find it very burdensome to continually "save" (or update form) to make sure their entries are "saved" to the database. Each update also reloads the page which causes annoying delays. They also often forget to "save" their entries and end up losing…

  14. Allow radio buttons to use Yes/No data types

    When I set up my table, I naturally used Yes/No for questions with yes or no answers. Someone suggested I change the data page to radio buttons instead of check boxes, as it seemed unnatural to them (and to be fair, the change seemed to make sense from UX perspective.)

    I figured the change would be trivial, but oddly enough radio buttons cannot be used on Yes/No data types. Now I'm having to backtrack and add the fields to each data page after changing the data type.

    Could we get Yes/No data types to use Yes and No radio buttons?

  15. Labeling of virtual and html block elements of datapages

    Currently virtual elements & html block elements are simply numbered in the order created, making it EXTREMELY time consuming to locate the components of your form. NEED to be able to label these myself!

    Oh yeah, if it was all WYSIWYG editing, that would be even better!!!

  16. Add Fields for TIME of Day or Hours/Minutes (HH:MM) without having to do a bunch of coding.

    Would like to be able have codes for time of day (singularly) and hours or minutes -- all as separate fields. As it is exists today, one has to use Caspio's calendar function and go through a process to separate fields and use virtual fields. Must this REALLY be so complex to configure one field?

  18. Advanced form rules and checks based on calculations of user input.

    We would like to prevent "garbage in" as much as possible by adding constraints on webforms.

    A good example would be for a Date of Birth field to only accept dates greater than 18 years ago.

    Another example would be to say field [x] must be greater than field [y].

  19. Ability to update or submit multiple records to different tables from a single form.

    Data normalization is important for flexible databases. The ability to update or submit multiple records would allow more sophisticated normalization. We need, for example, to store several types of firms in separate tables and use addresses for individuals as well as firms. Without the ability to update or submit multiple tables to different tables from a single form, we will not be able to use Caspio for our project.

  20. Prohibit an End Date to be earlier than a Start Date or display error mesage

    On our intake form, there are "Trip Start Date" and "Trip End Date" fields. It would be helpful to prohibit an End Date that is earlier than the Start Date (e.g., Start Date = 1/15/2019; End Date = 12/01/2018). Or an error message would be helpful. Currently this functionality requires custom JavaScript. Thanks!
