  1. Hello; Do views and tables have different performance characteristics? Or, is their only purpose to provide multi-table data sets? Consider these two scenarios: tbl_1 -> fld_1 | fld_2 | fld_3 | fld_4 | fld_5 | fld_6 frm_1 -> tbl_1.fld_3 | tbl_1.fld_5 Will the following View save me data usage or speed up the call? (or do anything else) view_1 -> tbl_1.fld_3 | tbl_1.fld_5 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- frm_2 - tbl_1.fld_1 | tbl_1.fld_2 | tbl_1.fld_3 | tbl_1.fld_4 | tbl_1.fld_5 | tbl_1.fld_6 Will the following View slow down the call? (or do anything else) view_2 - tbl_1.fld_1 | tbl_1.fld_2 | tbl_1.fld_3 | tbl_1.fld_4 | tbl_1.fld_5 | tbl_1.fld_6 THANKS
  2. I want to create a view that will give me unique values for an activity with an entity, while the table stores activity, entity and sometimes multiple contact persons per entity. I want a chart and a report that shows the number of activities with each entity (and do not want those entities with multiple contact persons to count / shown multiple times). Is there a way to create so-called Group By views, or is there a way to structure a report in such way that The multiple contacts are not shown?
  3. Does anyone know if its possible in JS to dynamically change the filters applying to a Table or View that's linked to a datapage? I have several checkboxes for Users to select from, and the selections can drastically alter the types of filters I want to apply. Essentially I'm looking for much greater control over the results table than the Caspio wizard screen filters can allow. Thanks
  4. I have a View based on about 6 related tables. One of these tables has about 60,000 records that span the last 20 years, which is by far the largest table. I really only need the last 5 years of data from this table for Caspio purposes, so I'm wondering if it might be worth it to archive any data in that table that's older as a means of improving performance. That said-- unless there's a huge performance boost, my preference would be to create a View that filters out all years from prior what I need.
  5. I've found an issue doing a left-outer self-join. I can't get any criteria to work for what should be a simple left join; does anyone have any ideas? One table, relevant columns are:CID (Number) - ID number to join with other tables (other tables not relevant in this instance, relationship has not been defined in Caspio)VID (Text[255]) - Name of the Vendor usedEndDate (Date/Time) - Date that the relationship with the Vendor endedLet's have 3 people:John Doe - CID 1Billy Bob - CID 2Fat Joe - CID 3Table Enteries are as follows:1, HR, *null*1, Surefire, *null*1, Vantage, *null*2, HR, 01/01/20162, Surefire, 01/01/20163, HR, *null*3, Vantage, *null*Table should join to itself (left outer) with the CID as the relationship join. What I want to see is anyone with a *null* value for the HR end date and their corresponding Surefire information. View should populate as:1, HR, *null*, 1, Surefire, *null*3, HR, *null*, *null*, *null*, *null*I can't get the criteria right to do this. When I restrict the criteria for the self-join to only join if the right table VID entry is "Surefire" it restricts all the results by that field. The view I end up with is:1, HR, *null*, 1, Surefire *null*
  6. I've created a View that utilizes several tables. When I update the design of a Table, I'm not seeing that change reflected in my View. Is this normal behavior, or perhaps I'm overlooking something? As a work-around, I can delete the view, and create another, using the same tables (which by this point have the mentioned Design change already in place), and everything just works. I'd love to find quicker way to go about this though.
  7. Hi, I'd like to share a performance tweak I discovered this morning. Filter your data at the Data Page, not the View. In a View, I filtered out values based on the criteria of time-stamped values from the last 30-days. The Data Page that used this view took ~9 seconds to load. I switched to Filtering a DataPage, and now it loads in <1 second. Think Easy CHAD
  8.

  9. Hello Caspio Gurus! I have an action log, and in this action log I have three Foreign Key user fields - Assigned, Creator, Completer. (all three which point at tblUser) How might I go about displaying all these users in one report? I tried creating views (qryUserAssigned, qryUserCreator, & qryUserCompleter) and using those views in a view, but I can only use tables when creating a view. Any help will be greatly appreciated. CHAD
  10. Hello; I am trying to create a view in which I would like to use multiple criteria on one field to filter the data. i.e. RecordID <> 101, 109, 117, 131, 140 When I attempt to do this Caspio tells me "Invalid value - Value Must Be A Number" Is there a workaround for this? Thanks!
  11. I am trying to conditionally show/hide HTML elements based what type of user is logged in. I’m not too familiar with how Caspio sessions are handled and how they relate to my HTML pages. I also have very little Javascript experience. There should be three levels of access, Admin, Manager, and User. I currently have an authentication table that has three users and three yes/no fields (admin/manager/user), each user is a different type. My first idea was to use cookie data. On successfully logging into my authentication form it would make a cookie for user type which would have a value of admin, manager, or user. Then I could use that cookie to add the display:none style to certain elements that I don’t want lower access users viewing. My problem is that I’m not sure how to do that with Javascript, or if that is the best practice. I currently have an HTML Datapage linked to my Authentication. On that page is this code: var type_admin = '[@authfield:admin]'; var type_manager = '[@authfield:manager'; var type_user = '[@authfield:user]'; if (type_admin == "Yes") { document.cookie="type=admin"; } else if (type_manager == “Yesâ€) { document.cookie="type=manager"; } else if (type_user == “Yesâ€) { document.cookie="type=user"; } Then I assume I would just reference the cookie on my HTML pages somewhat like this: <div class="adminContent"> Show this content if the user is Admin </div> <div class=â€managerContentâ€> Show this content if the user id Manager </div> <div class=â€userContentâ€> Otherwise show this content </div> Here are the HTML/PHP files I’m working with: http://domco.us/vita/test/ And here is the login page that’s just an embedded Datapage: http://domco.us/vita/page_login.php In the end I would like to be able to filter things like navigation buttons or div blocks. It would be great to have an Admin Tools link in the navigation that only Admins/Managers could see. I’m not sure the specifics of getting something like this to work. Also I don’t know how to keep that @authfield data throughout different HTML pages (not linked to Caspio) and I’m just assuming Cookies are the best option. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. I have a view With the relationship between tables. The values from a parent table are displayed With values from the related Field (configured i Relationship settings). When I create Search and Report With such a view I want to see values from the related table instead of Ids (from parent table). Also I eant to be able to insert and update such records in Report.
