  8. Issues with Iphone 7 uploading files.

    We are currently using the mobile app in andriod and Apple products. We have rolled this out across our company and have come across the following issue. On the iphone7 the person is prompted to upload from dropbox (they do not have an account with dropbox.) It should just prompt them to their gallery. I have attached a picture for reference. Its for only these 2 upload spaces. All others are prompted to a gallery or files.

  10. Previous value of a checkbox with app script?

    Is this possible? I've tried testing for null and empty string both with and without [ ] like you need around ['Yes'] when testing current value.

  15. Timestamped record changes

    Can I set up Trackvia to record changes in records (timestamp) and run reports to compare current data with the same data at different periods.

    e.g. Property was empty last week, now occupied. Want to run a report as at last week and as at today. The report would show data held in trackvia at an historic point in time.

    Occupancy Field might show NO at Dec 2016, YES at Jan 2016

  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'] ?

  20. How do I calculate the sum of a column so that I can then use that to determine the percentage of the total for a given value?

    For example I want to show the percentage of total sales by store, salesperson etc.
    Everything I have tried so far just returns 100% as it is only doing the calculation on a row by row basis rather than using the column total.
