  1. Open a specific form in Mobile App

    I have a work instruction that said "Check this and record it in Trackvia". I can easily put a link to the rigth trackvia form in a PDF.

    But, If I put this PDF on a tablet, the link will open the form in the web browser, not in the Trackvia mobile App.

    Is there a way to open a specific form in the trackvia app ?

  2. Time field type

    We would like to have a field type that is a "Time" only. Just like the date/time field but not have the user select the date.

  3. sum a specific column when the child record is in a specific location

    I have a table where users can select a parent record in more than one location. For example, a child table, "work order" contains both "Service 1", and "Service 2" links to the "services" table. Each linked service has an associated quantity column in the "work order" table. I have tried using the sum function in the "services" table to sum the total services entered but when I sum the "service 1 quantity" all of the values in that column are added regardless of whether the service was a parent record in the "service 1" link or in the "service…

  4. Export (and import) forms configuration

    In our compagny, we are certified ISO 9001 so we have to handle change management.
    We already have a functionnal systems to manage changes. If we were able to export the configurations of the forms in trackvia, we woud complie with the norm.

    So any format for the export would be nice as long as we can :
    * import it on an existing form or a new one
    * export it from an existing form

    The best would be to have it in a human readable format like XML or JSON

  6. Copy the linked field to text

    I have a contracts table and in it, users will select a child company from the linked child company table.

    I am trying to create a client contacts form that will automatically populate the selected child company(ies) in contracts in the associated client contact field

    Can you tell me how? Or is there a way to create a second column that will do something like linked record = linked record text

  7. Create links within Manufacturing Work Instructions that automatically populate the correct TrackVia picture entry

    I work for 3D systems. We manufacture 3D printers and use TrackVia in multiple ways, but on of them is to take pictures throughout the assembly process using Android Tablets for accountability and quality purposes. Currently, assembly line workers read paper work instructions, and only use the tablets for TrackVia. We want workers to be able to use the tablets to follow work instructions. Within the instructions, we would like for workers to be able to click a link that would take them to the appropriate TrackVia picture entry form. I'm not sure if this can be done being that…

  10. return the previous month's record

    I'm uploading invoices into our table. Each entry in the table will list the date run, the company name, qty and subtotal. I also want to add a column that populates what the previous month's qty was, so i can add an additional column that calculates the variance.

    Can someone help me with what the formula would be to return the previous month's qty?

    Thanks in advance

  13. Sending/sharing/emailing a record or scheduled report as an attachment

    Hello,

    I work for a healthcare organization. One of our departments uses TrackVia on a near daily basis. We have very recently upgraded from the classic version to the Enterprise+ version.

    Is there any way that we can use the "Share Record" feature, but instead of TrackVia printing out the data in the body of the email (the users have told me this can't be done for HIPAA reasons), the data can be sent as an attachment? Either a Word document or .csv or Excel spreadsheet is fine; it's just for our purposes, we cannot have the data printed out…

  15. Calculating Task Completion Time

    I am looking for a way to capture how long it takes a user to create a record.
    Does TrackVia stamp when a Form is opened? If so, then I can use this value in a datedif formula against the record Create Date/Time to see how long it took to open the form, key in the information, and click Save.

  17. How do I set up alerts, if possible, to my email account?

    Every time, someone enters a new order to be shipped, it would give you an email notification, that way you wouldn't miss RUSH/OVERNIGHT shipments

  18. Add tool tips to views/fields

    Add tooltips to views/fields/flows.

    The text widget is kind of klunky. Tooltips would be a more elegant solution for fields, but would also be useful to explain the purpose of a view or flow before someone jumps into one.

  19. know which users have viewed my record

    I have a table, which is for FAQ/Knowledge Base. I would like to know how many times a particular question has been viewed and maybe by who,? Is that possible in TrackVia currently?
