  2. 'unlock' a calculated field?

    I have a date calculate field that needs to be manually changed every now and then, maybe 1 in 10 records don't follow the pattern and need a custom date.

    I used the term 'unlock' because there is a small padlock in the top right corner of the box (image attached if you don't know what I'm talking about) so I am hoping there is a way to 'unlock' the field so that I can manually change the date.

    If you need anymore information let me know.

  3. 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.

  4. Changing the Font Color for Field Values

    Is there a way of changing the font color for field values?

    We can change the form background and label colors, but not the color of the field values which remain black.

    This makes is difficult to read on darker background colors.

  5. 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 :-)

  7. 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.

  8. Share all pages in a view

    I have views that contain more that one page. When I try to share or print, only the first page is displayed. I need to be able to include all data in a view when sharing and printing.

  9. Export a view with grouped data as it shows in TV instead of exporting as each individual record?

    When creating views that group store records by region, they show at the region level in TV, but export as individual records under highlighted rows for each region but aren't summed so I then have to go into excel and re-sum each section. Is there a way to get a View to export at just the grouped level? I really don't want to create a new table just to make this happen.

  17. Can I limit the available options in a form field based on a user/user with criteria?

    Can I create a user database containing country assignments for each user, then have a form field for another table have its dropdown options be dependent on the user filling the form in? Pretty much is a there a way to do a calculated field/calculated dropdown based on the user filling the form in?
