Ability for App users to import data into tables
Ability to create a datapage for App users to import data into tables without using a scheduled task or having to log into caspio. App users can add data manually; why not have the ability for admin level users to import directly into the tables?

Its been awhile since this was first brought up.
I believe Caspio may have reasons to not consider this feature.
Nevertheless, this dev tool is a wonderful engine, please Caspio, reconsider to help us evolve our work.
I agree - there is a massive need for this especially if we are to increase usability on the datapages!
My customers has to depend on us to import their data? I has to be done!
I have a SaaS model app which incorporates record level security based on additional unique identifiers for different 'user' accounts... Would be great if Caspio also enabled RLS-based users to upload data to tables from csv / excel (perhaps with each users unique identifier pre-filled for uploads).

Very much needed!!
I believe this is an essential feature. Please build it asap.

Can someone from Caspio take a quick moment to comment on this prospective feature? Is it a limitation from Caspio's side (i.e. is it problematic to implement)? Is it something Caspio assumes can be done with third-party integration? Looking around the internet, it seems this is a highly saught after feature for low-code environments.

Why isn't this already available???

I do not understand why this functionality is not in place currently.

Effectively a duplicate of "CSV or Excel via Web Form"

I really like this idea. Users could be so much more efficient if they have all of the tools to bulk edit, delete, and import data all while operating outside of the "Caspio" UI. Interaction with our end users would be far more fulfilling if they can immediately see the impact of their new data without emailing us with an attachment in order to wait for us to make the changes through the back end. I can imagine a number of other practical applications of a feature such as this. Please Caspio!
This a good feature. A possible solution at this time is to have our Professional Services team to develop the custom import process. I have opened a ticket and will follow up with you from there should you wish to consider the PS approach.
