If this relates to running a datahub import / export task. Whilst I fully agree to have this functionality as a standard feature would be great. I can confirm that Caspio Dev team did develop this option as a customisation for my account and the Dev cost wasn't too bad. So it can be done by them for a small charge if it's urgent.

this is such a basic request and there are at least five different ideabox items for this task.
caspio is great at lots of things but there are some basic functional things that continue to be missing . stuff like this one and the ability to <print> . a formatted report writer. not pdf integration

Fully agree on this. We definitely need them exposed to the UI and could use them in a variety of ways if we had some connection to them. I'm really surprised they are not already exposed in some way. Give us a button capability or a restful call at a minimum.
Triggered action cannot be used to perform operations if referential integrity is enabled in a relationship. Run task from button is a useful feature
I can't believe that tasks (with parameters) cannot be executed from buttons on datapages and that they can only be scheduled (outside of end user's control) or run manually (by a back-end user).
I see that requests to add this functionality have been around for years yet they are still not planned or in progress.
If core functionality like this isn't high on the priority list then I question the Caspio strategy and wonder how much longer it can survive.

Currently, tasks can't be triggered by an action in a DataPage. However, Triggered Actions may help with your use case. More information can be found at https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/triggered-actions/
