  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. 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 :-)

  6. Timestamped record changes

    Can I set up Trackvia to record changes in records (timestamp) and run reports to compare current data with the same data at different periods.

    e.g. Property was empty last week, now occupied. Want to run a report as at last week and as at today. The report would show data held in trackvia at an historic point in time.

    Occupancy Field might show NO at Dec 2016, YES at Jan 2016

  8. Restrict data input by using a validation rule

    Hello, can be used in TrackVia data input restriction rules, e.g to be not able to set in some Date/Time field, Date/Time value which for instance is in the past.

    Thanks

  10. Combine the drop down menu and single line text?

    I have 6 options that I need in a drop down menu. I would like to include an "other" option as well. If my users select that choice, they will need to input their own selection. Is there anyway to do this?

  12. Copy/share a list of dropdowns in a table?

    In my database application, one table, I have 3 columns which are calling for states, because there is a project state, there is an address of the engineer and there is an address for the owner. Currently, I have to go in and manually enter the dropdown for each columns as 50 states in US plus all Canadian province. If there was a feature to copy or share the list choices in the table, or among different tables, it would be greatly useful. Also for standard fields like US states, if it was a pre created dropdown, I could use,…

  15. Create tasks that are dependent on each other?

    I'm working on creating a project management tracker. I have several tasks that I want to link to each other, so that if one of the tasks takes longer than scheduled, it modifies the dates of the other tasks when I change the task date.

  16. download pictures and documents into a table in database. Sure would be nice, if it was as easy as the spreadsheet import!

    I have many documents and pictures that will reside on the database and want to know how to import them into my database.

  17. upload multiple documents to a record?

    Do i have to add multiple "document" fields? Or is there something I can add that will allow for multiple uploads at once? Also, if I want to add more documents later, and I use the upload field, it seems to replace the file I originally uploaded. Is this right?

  18. Inventory App

    The legacy Trackvia had an example of an Inventory App. I would like to build a similar one where my employees can keep track of inventory of products in their area so that on a single dashboard, in real time, the supply manager knows when levels of certain products go below par levels. Any ideas?

  20. edit the table schema

    Hi,

    The new app look very nice! Hope you like some feedback:
    In the first test drive minutes I found it extremely hard to find where the table schema (fields) can be edited.

    Finally I managed to find the table builder, but I still get lost. FYI: I'm using it just for minutes now, but that usually is the best moment to get an impression of how intuitive it is regarding 'where am I' or 'where can I do this/that'.

    Warm regards,
    Henry
