Creating custom searching algorithm

Question

I am wondering if I could create a data base searching datapage with my own algorithm to search through it. The existing database searching and data retrieval algorithm doesn't fit my system requirement. So, I am wondering if I could create my own algorithm to search through the database and create a datapage for it.

Hi @Ashenafi- as  I understand, if you would like to create your own 'algorithm' for your DataPage, you may try to create first an Application folder that you can store your Tables inside. For the Tables, that is where you can store your data/records or you can import your own data to Caspio if you already have one. Then, I usually create a Search and Report DataPage if I am already satisfied with my Table structure. Make sure that your data is normalize before proceeding to any complex part of the application. Once you have established your base or foundation, you may now continue working on what you desire. 

Here are some of the article and video tutorials that personally helped me throughout my process:

https://blog.caspio.com/data-normalization/#:~:text=By normalizing data%2C you reduce data redundancy while ensuring that only related information is stored in any given table.

Hope this helps! Cheers mate :)
