Importing Views

Previously exported views can be imported into any Caspio Bridge account as long as the tables used in the view either exist in the account or are being imported at the same time.

From the top menu bar select Tools/Import to start the import wizard..

Next, select the file containing your view and start the upload. Once the upload is complete select the app into which you want to import the View.

In the Configure Objects section, select an import type:

  • Create New – Create a new View object.
  • Replace – Overwrite an existing View.

Once the import is finished, the details of the import are shown.

Exporting Views

You can Export a View or Download its data.

Exporting a view saves the definition of the view on your computer. View export files contain no data. To ensure that the view can be recreated at a later time you may want to consider exporting its tables as well.

There are two ways to start the Export:

  1. In Views listing select a view and click More > Export.
    exporting_views_1
  2. or, on the top menu bar click Tools > Export.

In either case the export process guides you through the export process.

Downloading the data of a view can be performed when the view is open in Datasheet. The Download option is at the top of the view. Note that downloaded data cannot be re-imported into Caspio Bridge as a View but it can be imported as a Table.
