New user: how to videos incorrect info for new GUI?



Playing around with Casio free trial for Web Forms. However, after watching first video and following along I noticed discrepancies between the early How To Videos and current interface for Creating a Web Form ( http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/ ) . Specifically right off the bat:

1. Create web form part 2 of 3 (http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/create-a-web-form-2-of-3-create-a-datapage.html ) it states at 3:00 minutes in for the Date Submitted field settings form element to change it to a Time Stamp, but in current interface Time Stamp isnt an option as Im following along.

2. Create web form part 2 of 3 ( http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/create-a-web-form-3-of-3-deploy-a-datapage.html ) it states at about 2:32 minutes into video to Edit fields and Insert Header. But the Insert option/icon referenced is not in current Bridge GUI version.

Is there a video showing whgere the new Timestamp feature for a form is or how to insert header/footers? Thanks!

1. There are two methods to stamp the time.

In the table level, you can set up the data type as Timestamp which automatically record the date and time whenever a record is submitted and/or updated.

In the DataPage level, you can set up the data type as Date/Time in the table design and select the DataPage where you want to add a timestamp. Proceed to the Select Fields screen and move the Date/Time field to the right-hand column using the arrow button. Use the Form element dropdown to select the TimeStamp option under Special Elements. Please refer this at: http://howto.caspio.com/datapages/form-elements/stamp-the-time-andor-url-on-a-new-submission-or-update.html.

2. Header and Footer

You can use insert button at the bottom right corner of the DataPage Elements panel: http://howto.caspio.com/datapages/form-elements/header-and-footer.html
