  2. format dates for search criteria automatically and don't have the program shame me

    This should be a no brainer as long as you decide you want to. When I enter a date search criteria as 8/5/23 I get a warning to enter a date. This is because it is not formated 08/05/2023. But you show it as that new format and all I have to do is hit submit again. Why shame me when you don't have to. Just change it like you are already doing and go on with the query. Geeshh

  3. File: upload or choose

    Make an option, so that the user can chose between an already uploaded file or upload a new file.
    It would reduce duplicate files where the contents is the same.

  4. clear search

    This is more of a bug report then a feature request: give us a proper CLEAR SEARCH button next to or comined with the existing search button.
    There really needs to be a "clear search" button available that will clear all the existing search terms (also the ones in dropdown's, not just the ones in text fields), but will not reload the page. In short,

  5. Create a feature where you can COPY the SUBMISSION Form Data (formatted Input of fields) over to a REPORT Details page

    SUBMISSION Input COPY to REPORT. The idea is that when you have large complex input forms 100s to 1000s of data fields (1023 being the limit) ... which should also be updated for larger tables) that you have to spend days to create/design layout ... that you will ultimately want to use the SAME Layout in a SEARCH/MODIFY REPORT ... the way it is working now, you have to completely recreate the layout from scratch to build the Modifiable report. It would be very useful if there was a way to COPY over the FORMAT details of the INPUT/DETAIL PAGE…

  6. scatter plot graph = simple map

    Please provide a Scatter Graph with the ability to upload a custom background figure. Why? Because Scatter Graph + custom background = map.
    This would be a really easy way for you to add basic map capabilities. You can provide some backgrounds for the most common use cases (USA, Europe, et.c) and GIS savvy users can produce a map of anything they like.
    You can advertise this as a huge upgrade!

  8. Multi-record update form / or a tabular report in which you can have grouping + inline edit

    I have an app in which I need to display multiple records for the user on a single page and for that user to be able to edit those records. With only single-record update available, this is currently impossible via an update form. My workaround has been to use a tabular report and grid edit. This is OK (although still needed loads of JS and CSS to get it to display the way I wanted), but the problem comes when you want to display hierarchical data. Although such data can be presented effectively using 'grouping', once you enter grid edit…

  12. View PDF saved in Table on Datapage

    We need a way to display PDFs that are uploaded into a file field in our tables. The ability to display a PDF that a user uploaded on a page is critical.

    There is a similar post that is marked Completed, but there still is no way to show sensitive PDFs that are saved to your Caspio tables. Their 'solution' is to use FileStor, but they tell you that you can only use non-sensitive materials for this.

    We are almost in 2023 and I have to ask for this...

  13. System Parameter - Timestamp

    When I submit or update a record and use the System Timestamp paramente in the datapage to track when then action was performed, currently the time is set after the datapage is open.

    However, the time between the datapage loading action and the form is actually submitted by the user might be different. It would be useful if this timestamp parameter is set when the form is successfully submitted too.

  14. Format Negative Numbers with Red Font

    Caspio needs to modify the Format area where Numbers are formated for each Text field to allow the developers to select a Font color (the default should be RED: #FF0000) for Negative numbers. This is a standard accounting practice. This shouldn't be too hard since the (-) sign is already being associated with the number.

    Right now, you have to jump through hoops and then code on every data page (the code being slightly different based on the type of page). The current solution is not documented anywhere. It took me a week and a half on the Forum to…

  15. Create a simplified way to change the default text of the standard "View Details" function.

    When using a a "Details Page" for each record in a tabular view, the default text is set to "View Details". I can change that in the CSS, but it is very complicated to create the right text per page. Some pages I would like it to say "View Details", but others I would like it to say "Edit Details" or "Update".

    It would be nice to have a way to very simply change the default display text locally to a DataPage.

    Alternatively, if you would allow the Details Page to be linked to an HTML "Specific Data Field" that…

  16. Add Formatting Setting by Text fields in DataPages - submission form

    If you have a Text field in a DataPage - submission form and you to use it for entering an currency, you can't formatting settings. While this field in the table does have the correct DataType.

    If you have a form element 'Calculated Value', then is the formatting settings is available.

    There is a workaround solution in an JavaScript but you make it quite complicated. I do believe that for something so simple, this must be standard functionality.

    For using percentage is this more or less the same issue.

  17. Payment processor in Details Report datapage

    I suggest to add Payment in Reports details datapage too. That is extremely important! It will save so much time and resources to have eit in REports datapage. Now it is possible to add only in Submission form, which is not useful as details report datapage.

    I have a huge list of users and instead of adding the payment in the details page I have to create another dummy table, connect it to my main table, then set 2 triggered actions, then create another submission form datapage and pass 10 parameters just for adding in my submission for the payment…

  19. make the autocomplete and dropdown fully interchangeable fields

    Imagine a dropdown list with 2500 items. Finding proper value is challenging. The Autocomplete field is the best fit for this use case, but it does not currently work when the field is a foreign key.

    The dropdown list has "field for display" and "field for value". However, autocomplete lacks the "field for display" parameter. So, currently, on the initial load of the data page, it shows the "field for value" (the ID field, in my case, not the value that users should see).

    It would be great to add "field for display" and make autocomplete and dropdown fully interchangeable.

  20. Conditional Dropdown; 2+ sources for dropdown list

    It would be nice if we could have conditional dropdowns (not cascading) that will change the datasource/value list depending on the value of a Parent element.

    In example, if the Parent value was A, then the dropdown would list Group A values. Likewise, if the Parent value was B, then that same dropdown would now show Group B values.
