  1. Run Tasks outside of Caspio Website

    I would like to see the ability to create a button/link to run a specific task inside of a Datapage. For example, I have many tasks that my staff need to run on demand. Currently, I have to set these tasks up to a schedule, or log in and run them on demand for my staff.

    If we had the option to add specific task buttons inside of datapages, or even a specific link that would trigger the task to run, then my staff could run these tasks as they complete their work.

  2. Form builder like in MS Access database

    It would be fantastic to have the same type interface for building custom forms and reports as you have when using MS Access. The drag and drop options, customizing format, adding buttons, multimedia, short code and the ability to export out as a PDF while utilizing database fields would make life 100% awesome.

  3. Record Locking

    Not all the time we work with people editing only his own profile info. In our case, we have a lot of users who might access to the same records without any notice that somebody else open it before. This causes information being lost. For example, User A opens a record first and then User B does. As user A only editted the date of birth leaving the middle name empty, as he did not intend to deal with the middle name. Now user B (who accessed the record while it was being editted by User A), only wants to…

  4. CSS Field per element/ Custom Style on an individual Datapage Element

    I think this would be super simple to implement and totally awesome. You could add a field in the properties for an element that allows us to add a custom class. That way we could add some additional styling via an external style sheet. 1 example is to to simply allow some specific elements to be bold versus other. Conditional CSS would be incredible as well. If you agree, please vote... If not, no worries. Please, please please leave any comments or ideas regarding this.

  5. API Authentication from Caspio Login in Tables

    Use caspio authentication methods that are integrated with Caspio's API so create user tables and passwords.

  6. To make ture sense of white labeling

    To have a true sense and complete purpose of white labeling feature, I think it will be great if the code to be deployed to any website will be encrypted or caspio can create virtual domain or some kind of key for the customer identification that replace "caspio.com". in the embedded section of the code that copied and posted to individual webpage or framing, that way customer can get what they are actually paid for as white label and customer can also protect some unethical people who steal sources page just by doing the right click on the page source…

  7. Add Telephone Number Authentication and/or Automatic Formatting

    Similar to that done for email, but with separate validations for US and International numbers (and other formats as appropriate). Include choices of 7 or 10 digits and use of parenthesis or dashed for US numbers; similar choices as appropriate for International numbers. Even better, have the Datapage Wizard automatically create boxes for each part of the number (area code, base number, country code) when phone number field is created in a table. PART 2: the ability to concatenate a label with the phone number (as in Home: / Work: / Cell: )

  8. Date format in table

    It is a good feature if the Date format can be changed in the table level. Currently, the date values are stored in the tables in the format MM/DD/YYYY.

  9. Faster moving of datapage elements when configuring datapage fields

    I'm building my datapages, so I make mistakes and have to delete elements/fields. When I re-add them, they show at the bottom of the list in the Configure page. They take FOREVER to move up to where I want them. I spend half my design time just moving them. Could you add buttons to move elements 10 spaces at at time. And would it be possible to make them move faster in general?

  11. Code editing

    I have finally given up on creating javascript and HTML code directly to the code editor window (CodeWindow.jpg). There is obviously no code error-checking, which is inconvenient but I think that would be difficult to feature (idk...). However, can we not have a monospace font that is standard of (all?) code editors out there? (ActualCode_Editor.jpg) And why can't the size of the code window be made bigger?

    I don't think I'm asking for the world

  12. 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…

  13. Add Zapier API ability to add file attachments in Caspio

    Currently unable to upload a file attachment through the Zapier integration with Caspio.
    Both Caspio and Zapier support have advised that they are aware of the issue but no timeframe has been given as to when this function will become available.

  15. Increase the limit for using triggers above 10,000!

    I've been trying to implement a trigger to estimate the min/max/average for all the records in my database. If I have four fields I want to estimate min/max/avg values for with a table of 1,000 records I get an error (e.g. 3 aggregations x 4 fields x 1,000 records = 12,000 which is above 10,000. This is very restrictive for doing aggregation calculations. I've also not noticed any performance issues. This limit can be lifted without any compromises for those who need it.

  16. Ability to add SQL to the table formula field for cross table calculations (like you can in a DataPage formula)

    Triggered actions are a great feature on their own and work well for new projects. However, they do not replace an SQL statement and only work for new records/actions.

    Someone else already commented this on a previous request (http://ideabox.caspio.com/forums/164206-caspio-bridge/suggestions/16414099-can-we-add-sql-to-the-table-formula-field-for-cros) that was marked "complete".

  17. Many-to-Many Relationship

    Caspio can only handle a "one-to-one" or a "one-to-many" relationship in a table field. As a result, creating a "many-to-many" relationship requires creating a third table.

    Competing database programs (even those that are less developed than Caspio) allow a table field to easily hold references to multiple other entries in another table -- i.e. a native many-to-many field. (Webflow, Knack, Bubble are other ones I've looked at, and they all had it).

    Increasingly, the world works in a "many-to-many" way. For example...
    - A blog post will have many categories
    - An article may have multiple authors
    - An event…

  20. 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].
