  1. Is there a similar feature in Trackvia Express as the document merge function in Trackvia Classic?

    I currently use the document merge function in Trackvia Classic for exporting to MS Word templates and am looking for similar functionality in Express.

        • Highlight Required Fields for Users

          The red box highlighting required fields for users only appears if the user has clicked on the input, not entered anything, then attempted to save the form. On a form with many fields and a user quickly moving through the form, they may miss the required field and try to save. Even when this occurs, the red box does not appear signalling where the user has to go back. While it makes sense to not have the red box showing by default, it would probably avoid some user frustration/confusion by having it triggered also by clicking "Save Changes." This would…

          • Reset an Auto Counter?

            Is it possible to completely reset the auto counter for a table?
            I have tried deleting a current one & creating a new one, but the numbers don't reset.
            I know that I can "reset" it by re-creating the same table, but I'd like to avoid that.

                  How do I delete users? For individuals I know will not be using the system again, how can I eliminate them so as to avoid a cluttered user management table.

                  • print a dashboard

                    I am new to TrakVia and have enjoyed using it for our application, but I have a superb dashboard, which I would like to send to all executives every 15 days, but seems there is currenly no way to print dashboard. I have to print each view individually, which is time consuming. Wish we can print from Dashboard and further if I can automate it to send it out to people with email address (non track via users) every 15 days, that would be fantastic!!

                    • Assign multiple forms for a single table

                      I need to be able to assign multiple forms to a single table. This works fine as long as the user is an admin. But it does not work when users are given limited access or when mobile app is in offline mode.

                        • How can I share a dashboard?

                          I have several tables and views saved within one rolled up dashboard. I would like to share this dashboard via email weekly with our team. Is there a way to share dashboards? Or does anyone have a creative idea for sharing more than one view?

                            • bulk

                              Bulk Editing, any updates on fixing this bug? It's getting beyond a joke now and I've been asked to explore options for an alternative to your system because it's still not been fixed.

                              It's actually quicker to export a table to Excel and re-import with changes, which completely defeats the point of the whole system.

                                • Calculated Link field to allow custom action on each row

                                  It seems that in TrackVia we can not add custom actions on each row like in Zoho creator.
                                  For example, jump to LinkedIn profile of a contact, based on its name and forname stored in TrackVia table.

                                  An easy way to achieve this could be to create a new type of calculated field: Calculated Link

                                  By this way, we could extend the action functionalities of TrackVia on each row,

                                  image: trying to calculate a link base on forname and Calculated Text Field (without success :-)

                                        • Calculating Duration of Time

                                          Is there a way to calculate Time, (not Base-10 numbers)?

                                          I have a user who tracks Total Run Time (TRT) for TV Programming, and we need to sum/add the durations of multiple TRT's in the format of HH:MM:SS (Base 60).
