  1. Caspio will custom build this for you, for a fee. And then there will be a monthly fee to keep it up and running. We had them build something like this for us where I work. I hated paying to have the script written, and then seeing the monthly costs added in. However, the solution was well done, quickly implemented, and it's supported through all Caspio updates. If you see this as vital to your app, I recommend working with the Caspio team to get it built. They are great to work with.
  2. Does anyone have thoughts on how I could create a system for taking attendance or operating a gradebook with Caspio? I've been thinking about this for over a year, but I haven't come up with anything that isn't too crude. Here is what I would like to see: A table has student names and IDs, along with several events (e.g., the date a group met, or the title of an assignment). A user (teacher/coach/group leader) can take attendance for the event by marking students "present" or "absent" in a submission form. This is the challenge I see: Users don't always know the "events" when the table is created, and they are not Caspio developers who can modify table structures. So...creating a new "event" would actually require me to edit the table with a new field, which I do NOT want to do every time a user creates an event. I'm thinking there must be a way to do this with multiple tables, and perhaps views or relationships. But then there comes the challenge of marking multiple students "present" or "absent" at the same time. Any thoughts or insights would be appreciated.
  3. I'm a relatively experienced Caspio user who is looking to try the caspio mobile kit. Has anyone used the kit with any success? Would you be willing to share an example of it? Any insight would be appreciated. We deploy a lot of apps to mobile responsive pages, which creates the feel of a smart device app, but I'm looking for something more.
  4. I'm relatively new to caspio, but I'm using it for darn near every aspect of my work lately. I think I can get to a point where I have a nice HHTML data page that looks like a report, with set headers and such. What I REALLY want is to give users the option of converting a data page into PDF document they can easily print. Is this going to be a third party kind of thing? Or can I convert HTML into PDF if it's in java script? Full disclosure: I am NOT a programmer AT ALL! Caspio sure makes me look a lot more clever than I am, but I think this "print as pdf" option would really help me with my last piece. Any insight would be appreciated.
  5. I've been shrinking the results table (data page) by creating different Styles and reducing the table from 100% to a smaller proportion. Creating or modifying the styles may also have some of the other options you are looking for, but it doesn't seem to let me format individual columns. I think we're looking for the same thing, so I'll follow this topic and wait for someone more skilled to reply
