  1. 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?

  2. Is there a way to set up user dashboards to just show the records of the user?

    I have 4 sales guys and want to be able to use the same views for each on their dash but only have their files come up.

    Currently they have 6 views with 6 filters to allocate files to each of them (so 24 views with 24 filters built to make it work)

    Is there a way to set up a master dashboard which everyone logs into and they just see the files they are working on without having to replicate the whole setup for each user?

  4. Return child value based on max date field

    I have a child table with a date and a number. I would like to pull back the number for the child record with the highest date. The date field does not correlate with the create or modify date.

    Child table:
    01-05-2020 6
    01-23-2020 10
    01-15-2020 20

    Returned value would be 10

  6. Power BI Integration

    has anyone done integration with Microsoft Power BI? We are looking for a more robust set of visual representations of data display and a lot of the individuals who need to view the reports don't necessarily need to have logins and licenses. Just curios on the types of APIs possibly used.

  11. TrackVia API and Tableau Web Data Connector

    Tableau just came out with a Web Data Connector that allows it to pull in JSON data and Rest APIs.

    See https://www.tableau.com/about/blog/2015/8/connect-just-about-any-web-data-new-web-data-connector-42246

    Do any of the TrackVIa API experts know how it might be possible to push TrackVia data to Tableau using this option?

  12. Allow calculated form fields value to be selected/copied

    Unable to select (or copy) values from Calculated Text fields

    The html fields used to display these fields are <textarea> and marked as "disabled". This is preventing me from selecting the text and copying the values (to be pasted in another application/process).

    A few ideas are to:
    1.) Display the text as inline text (no textarea field)
    2.) Use non-disabled textarea's, but override javascript to prevent changing of the text
    3.) Give a copy button to copy text to clipboard (link bit.ly, Box, etc.)

  14. Please turn off the new info from your latest release

    Please turn off the new info from your latest release. I'm very tired of logging in every day and seeing the same info for your new "revamp" of your dashboards (which I don't care for, by the way). How do I turn the info off so I don't have to see it anymore? I don't see a way to turn it off!!

  18. Issues with tablets - App Update or Mobile Compatibility of Website

    We are utilizing iPads and Samsung tablets in the field with the TrackVia app. The app does not allow filtering within views like the desktop site. So in some instances we are having to log into TrackVia through Chrome on the tablet. When we do this there is no scrolling through a view. It is very annoying and limiting the amount of information our people can readily access.

    Either the scroll issue on tablets needs to be addressed or filtering added to the app. Both would be optimal, but one or the other to remedy the lack of access to…

  19. Scripting: If currentValues[] is a Map, why does .values() give me an error?

    If currentValues["Total"] is a Map of name/value pairs why does assigning it to m1 and then calling m1.values() not return the value?

    e.g.
    def m1 = currentValues["Testing"]
    m1.values()

    How else can I reference the value in currentValues["Testing'] ?
