  1. Create a dashboard with pull down menu

    I have 4 tables (Clients, Projects, Notes, Tasks). I want to create one Dashboard that, from a pulldown menu, I select a client, and have the projects, notes, and tasks associated with it show up below it.

  2. Reset an Auto Counter?

    Is it possible to completely reset the auto counter for a table?
    I have tried deleting a current one & creating a new one, but the numbers don't reset.
    I know that I can "reset" it by re-creating the same table, but I'd like to avoid that.

  3. Track Via Capabilities. A little confused.

    The one thing that would make TrackVia near perfect for our business would be the ability to easily customize the list for export based on factors.

    For instance, we have mailing to go out and we want to target a certain market, number range etc. we can just pick each database row and customize the export parameters.

    ie. Mail to A-J last names on our list, in Phoenix and Scottsdale, unit counts 50-250 who haven't been contacted in 4 months. (all current categories tracked in TV) Just easily go in create the list and export it.

    Would this program be…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. have a static line graph that doesn't require hovering over it to see the data?

    I need to create a static line graph that doesn't require hovering over it to see the data. Currently using Excel for this, the application takes hours to complete. Wondering if Track Via would even allow for this.

  10. 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?

  12. Error on Add/Import records

    When I try to add/update records with an import, I keep getting a little red flash that says something like: "We ran into a error importing your file with the mappings you provided".

    Obviously, there is some kind of a mapping issue, but everything looks correct; and after the red flash message goes away, trackvia just times out.

    Anyone else seen this? Any solution? What am I doing incorrectly?

    Thanks,

    Todd

  14. Returning Value based on date being between two dates

    I am trying to produce a formula to calculating carbon emissions factors.

    When inputting a new meter record I need the date to return a value if it is between two dates.

    I then need that value to be multiplied by the new meter value.
    For this to work I presume I am going to need to set up another table with all of the dates and values I want to be returned. But how do I lay the table out?
    Do I do a start date and end date? Month on Month?

    Really need some help on the formula…

  15. why are my app dashboard barcharts different to my actual dashboard barcharts?

    I've created various status barchart views for one of my apps on my computer and added to a dashboard. On the computer they look great. When I view them on my ipad most of the funtionality has been removed and they don;t match what I see on my computer.

    Is tehr a reason for this?

  17. Max Function and Dates

    I have a max function that returns the "highest", or most recent, date. However, what gets returned is the max date minus 1 day.

    For example, the highest date is 4/20/2014. But 4/19/2014 is returned.

    Is this a bug? Or how can I fix it?

  18. get rid of an unwanted comma before calculated text

    We have two tables - one for assets and another a check out log
    To get the current location with we have two formulas for calculated text

    Check out log
    if(isblank({Checked In Date}), {LOCATION}, "")

    Assets
    if(sum({Checkout Log}.{Asset (Checkout)}.{Currently Checked Out})>"0",childconcatenate({Checkout Log}.{Asset (Checkout)}.{CURRENT LOCATION} , ","),{HOME LOCATION})

    They work fine except a comma is appearing the box before the location. How do we get rid?
