  1. More Chart Customization

    Is there a chance to add further customization to charts.

    For example:
    - Adding the option to display the data point on a line / bar graph in place of or in addition to hover text.
    - Customize the color of the lines

    The more options for charts the better.

  2. Calculate a fields value at record creation time, but not update it ever again

    I would like to sum up the values in the child records and store the sum in the parent record when the parent record is created. But not have the parent sum value change when the child records change. I just want that parent sum to stay the same forever. Kind of like taking a snapshot in time for history purposes.

  3. Pin open the paragraph field

    Currently, paragraph fields are by shown, by default as one line. Would it be an easy adjustment to add into the view editing interface an option to pin open a paragraph field to a certain depth - the ability to change the width of table views is a similarly useful function.

  5. application user nick name

    The application user field gives you a list of the user's name AND email, which is cluttered when there are several users in the list.

    I would like to be able to rename to exclude the email address or create nick names for the users. Is this possible?

  6. Make Zapier connections work consistently?

    I'm using Zapier with Ebmerge and Google Calendar, and sometimes the Zaps just stop working. Is anyone else using Zapier, and can you tell me any tricks or best practices for building the views and zaps so they're reliable?

  7. Section Headers on Dashboards

    I would like to be able to add a Section Header on dashboards. For Example: a current dashboard may contain data for 3 different pieces of data that belongs to one site. I want to be able to TITLE the sections - Section 1, Section 2, Section 3, so that when paging down the dashboard there is a specific division between the data.

    The issue is that if I create a dashboard for each site with each piece of data I will have 18 different dashboards and that's just unwieldy to manage. Also, only 4 + 1 tab shows across…

  8. 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…

  12. Set up a multiple layered conditional filters?

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know if there is a way to set up a filter where there are 3 layers of condition filters. At the moment I can only seem to manage to have a two layer filter. I am not sure how to explain it so I hope everyone understands what I mean.

    Thank you.

  13. On my pie chart (or other graph), you can hover over a slice to see the qua

    On a pie chart (or other graph), you can hover over a slice to see the quantity and percentage for the "slice", but I would also like to see the TOTAL of all slices (maybe on cursor over or in the legend?).

    Currently, I create the graph view and a second view that counts the records to produce this information...it would be nice to have it all in one view.

    Thanks!!

  14. Distinguish text from number

    We track houses being built and need to enter lot number to generate lot IDs. sometimes these lot number have letters in them like lot 3A & lot 3B for a duplex. the field is currently a string and not number for this reason.

    the issues come to sorting. since it is a string field the houses show up with lot 1, lot 10, lot 100 before lot 2 because of how numbers are treated alphabetically.

    i fixed this with the code below:
    if({Lot Number}<10,concatenate("000",{Lot Number}),if({Lot Number}<100,concatenate("00",{Lot Number}),if({Lot Number}<1000,concatenate("0",{Lot Number}),{Lot Number})))))

    it makes lot 1 lot 0001 so that we…

  15. Add working days to a date

    We need the ability to add working days to a date, at the moment the only unit available is 'd' which includes weekends.
    Please note - i dont need to work out the number of working days between 2 dates, rather add working days to a start date, in order to determine the end one. Any ideas?

  16. 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.

  17. Implement a Refresh Token for View URL?

    The information regarding RESTful API at:
    https://developer.trackvia.com/tutorials/hello-world
    does not discuss how to use "refresh_tokens".
    I want to know how to implement the refresh token for the sake of acquiring a View ID URL that does not expire.
    Please help.

  18. 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!!

  20. Scan multiple barcodes within mobile app

    Is there a way to scan multiple barcodes either on record creation or searching for the record and then edit/save those records all together? Also, are there any other options for bulk editing records on the mobile application?
