  1. What you wanted to have is similar to the high usage FileStor. Please check it out at http://www.caspio.com/extend/platform-e ... estor.aspx.
  2. Hi, Please check destination of Form 1, and see what is the destination URL. The most possible reason is that the destination URL is the direct URL of Form 2. To fix this, please also embed Form 2 onto another of your web page, get the URL. Then edit Form 1 in Caspio again, and change the destination to the new URL. Hope this helps.
  3. Hi, When editing the DataPage, please use "display a message" instead of "go to a DataPage' as the destination option. Then on the text box, use HTML code to create a link (or button) back to the same form. The following message is an example. Thanks for your submission! Back to the form. . Hope this helps.
  4. Hi, The recommended way to create Open calculator is to use a Web Form. If you don't need to collect the calculations, simply use virtual fields instead of real table fields on the form. Use Javascript to perform the calculation and display calculated results on the confirmation/destination page. Here's one Javascript example - viewtopic.php?f=14&t=12155. Report DataPage is not recommended because it only displays/updates existing records.
  5. Hi, I'm afraid Caspio does not have email campaign analytics. But you definitely can use third party email to track it. We can implement a custom program to send the email trigger to the third party emailer to send email and synchronize. Please fill out the professional services request form at http://www.caspio.com/support/professio ... vices.aspx if you are interested.
  6. Hi Derek, What you'd like to do is possible. The brief steps are as follows. Please first edit Localization of your DataPage, go to the Settings screen and find item # 351 - "No records found." from the Results page >> Messages category. Enable custom text, use "Not available" and wrap the message with a div tag with a specific ID. Then you can come back and edit your Report DataPage, use Javascript to detect if the div with that specific ID can be found or not. If not, then hides the results table and display the "available" message accordingly. Hope this helps.

    Check boxes

    Hi Derek, As I understand, you'd like to automatically hide and show checkboxes on a details page based on the status. It is achievable by Javascript. Here is some sample code to hide one checkbox. function hideit() { if(document.getElementById('EditRecordFIELDNAME').checked==false) { document.getElementById('EditRecordFIELDNAME').style.visibility='hidden'; } } window.onload = hideit;
  8. Hi, Both requests are available on a Report DataPage like explained in the response above. However, they are not a standard features in a view. There's no good way to achieve the first request in a view for now. However, there is a workaround for your second request, which is to combine both fields you'd like to search on into one big field. Then create a view to perform "contains" search on that concatenated field. Hope this helps.
  9. Hi, I'm afraid each file field only accepts one file upload. In order to upload multiple files, you will need to create multiple file fields in the table and include them in your Caspio Form. Your users still need to browse and select the files one by one, then submit all of them at once.
  10. Unfortunately you cannot change the account ID. The only workaround is to create a new account and move all contents over to the new account. However, it doesn't worth the effort for most of the cases. The account ID is just a name to represents your account when you reach out to Caspio and is used when you login your Caspio account. There's no way for anybody else including end users of your app to know this information.

    Hey Derek, I believe you will find the following article helpful - http://howto.caspio.com/datapages/creat ... ssion.html
  12. Hi, Here's a workaround solution. In the form used to submit the summer programming opportunities, make the grade level field a listbox and simply include 3 options: ES, MS and HS. Then use the method instructed in the following link to enable multi-selection on the listbox field: http://forums.caspio.com/index.php/topic/3148-js-select-multiple-values-from-a-listbox-in-a-webform/. On the search form of your Report DataPage, also include the grade level field as a listbox. You can simply check the "allow multi-select" checkbox and use the "match any(OR)" option. Note to change the "comparison type" from "equal" to "contains". In this way, you can submit multiple options and search on multiple options as well.
  13. Hi, Have you tried to relocate the map by using the following map positioning method: By default, the map displays right above your DataPage. If you want to place your map in a different area of your page, place the following code there: You can try to deploy the map code and the DataPage in a blank web page and check if you see the same problem. Feel free to post the URL of your web page if you need any further help.
  14. Hi, Is this process done online? I guess you can create an update form with a file field. Your users can download the file, modify it and upload it again to replace the old file. In order to notify the admin when it's complete, you can add a custom link on the update form (http://howto.caspio.com/customization/g ... ndows.html), which says "If this is completed, please click here to notify the administrator". The link opens another blank update form and triggers the notification email (http://howto.caspio.com/automatic-email ... on-emails/) when the update button is pressed.
  15. Hi, I noticed that you use document.getElementById('Door') when refer to the checkbox field. Although the field is called 'Door' in the source table, it's ID is actually different in a real form. If it's a web form, the ID would be 'InsertRecordDoor'. And on an update or details form, the ID will be "EditRecordDoor".
  16. Hi Marty, To answer your first question, currently Caspio only provide calculation on report Datapages as a standard feature (for plus accounts and above). If you would like to perform calculation on Web Forms, Javascript is needed to custom program this. Examples can be found at: viewforum.php?f=14. Regarding the second question, it is possible by passing parameters. You will need to create two Report Datapages or Update Form to do so. The first Form is used to find and display the record that you would like to make a copy of. Either insert a custom link which opens the new record and passes the fields out as parameters, or utilize the 'destination and triggers' function to link to the next page as well as pass parameters. Here are the help articles on parameters: http://howto.caspio.com/parameters/ and I highly recommend you to go over the following two: http://howto.caspio.com/parameters/pass ... tring.html and http://howto.caspio.com/parameters/rece ... eters.html. Hope this helps.
  17. Hi, Unfortunately bulk upload on multiple records is not a standard feature for now. It is possible by utilizing web services API: http://www.caspio.com/support/web-services-api.asp. Or you can hire Caspio programmer to do this for you. The good news is that the development team is working on to add this feature in future release.
  18. Hi, What about open a ticket (https://support.caspio.com/Default.asp) and attach the document for further troubleshooting?
  19. Hi, Your account manager will contact you tomorrow for sure to discuss the email trigger project together. Thank you for the reminder.
  20. Hi, Can you paste the code you used to create this custom link here so that I can take a look? Please also paste the URL of your Datapage so that I can take a look of the problem and help you to troubleshoot.
  21. Hi, What a dropdown list can display is pre-defined custom values and/or data from a pre-designated table. So if the value will be displayed as long as it exists in the source table. If you wanted to let users be able to insert new options into the dropdown as well as not affecting other fields on the same form, here's an workaround which you can try out: http://howto.caspio.com/datapages/form- ... boxes.html.
  22. Hi Walt, I noticed the double quote was not closed in your code. See the double quote I marked with red here: CLICK Add this should make it work.
  23. Hi Mike, So you have inserted header&footer to a Report Datapage and wanted to hide the header when "no records found"? It might be possible with programming to wrap the code in header in a and insert Javascript in footer to check the status of the results page to display or hide the in header.
  24. Hi, Yes, this is possible by creating a table with only an 'email_address' field (http://howto.caspio.com/getting-started ... table.html) and a Submission Form (http://howto.caspio.com/getting-started ... apage.html) based on the table. Also enable acknowledgement email which will send an email to the email address the user typed in (http://howto.caspio.com/automatic-email ... mails.html). Hope this helps.
