Hi! Don’t forget to take a look in the Knowledge Base for answers to common questions :)

How do I...?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  4. Is there a way to select records in a table that are not linked to any other table

    I have a table of people who completed volunteer applications and a table of various volunteer jobs and a many to many link to link the volunteers to the activities they actually performed. That is working fine. I want to find all the people on the table of people who completed a volunteer application who have never volunteered at all. Is there a way to do that?

  5. How do you create a form to update records?

    How do you create a form to update records? For example; if I want to update the value of a date field to the current date, how would you create a form for this? so far I can only add records.

  6. How do I limit the number of records that show up by rank?

    I would like to have a top 10 list of items checked out in a asset tracking app. Right now I am trying to use the count field as a basis for this filter, but because the list constantly changes, I can't filter by a set number. it needs to be highest to lowest and only show 10 records. Anyway to do this.

  9. limited role can't edit table even though all maximum permissions are set.

    As you can see in the attached screen shots, I can't edit the asset and member drop down menus to create a new activity record. The checkout is a view of the activity table which is a child of both the member and the asset table. For limited role I have all settings to the maximum allowed permissions. It is only the assets and members drop down lists that don't show up.

    Thanks!

  14. How do I change a table name?

    There seem to be two opportunities for adding a table. One route allows you to immediately name it, the second route lets you add a table but with no way to give 'new table' a meaningful name. Finding the first route seemed rather serendipitous and I can't find my way back to it!
