Release Notes

SMS and Email Notifications

A popular feature request in the Caspio Ideabox is the ability to trigger SMS and email notifications based on conditional logic and specific data events. We are pleased to announce that SMS and email notifications are now available in Triggered Actions, allowing you to streamline communications and workflows in your Caspio applications.

Using the visual drag-and-drop interface, you can add email and SMS actions to new or existing Triggered Actions (available in the Actions menu).

In this release, SMS notifications will be limited to the United States and Canada phone numbers. Other regions and countries will be supported in future releases.

This feature is available in Professional and higher plans, all of which include 100 SMS messages per month and the ability to add more based on your expected usage. See our pricing page for details.

For an interactive demo of this new feature, join our webinar: “Send SMS and Email Notifications Using Triggered Actions”:

Enhancements to Triggered Actions

In addition to SMS and email notifications, we have made the following usability improvements to Triggered Actions:

  • A new Text Area block is available to support multi-line text.
  • TEXT64K fields can now be used in “IsBlank” and “IsNotBlank” comparisons.
  • Expression names can now be renamed for easier reference in other areas.
  • When enabling GROUP BY and HAVING in a SELECT block, field and aggregation elements will automatically be populated.
  • When connecting a new block with existing blocks, it will be joined with existing blocks whenever possible, instead of replacing them.
  • The visual indicators where individual blocks can be connected have been enhanced to improve usability.
  • When saving or validating a Triggered Action, incomplete expressions in a SELECT block will be automatically removed.
  • When moving a block to the canvas area, any configured fields and values will now be preserved.

Caspio Bridge REST API v2

We have released a new version of the Caspio Bridge REST API to incorporate Swagger UI, a popular third-party tool for API developers to interact and test against Caspio’s Bridge REST API using a visual interface.

Swagger UI is only available in Caspio Bridge REST API v2. If you are currently using v1, you will need migrate to the new version.

In addition to Swagger UI, we’ve also made the following enhancements to Caspio Bridge REST API v2:

  • New operations for Files
  • New endpoints for DataPages deployment
  • Changes to Tables/Views endpoints
  • Changes to query string parameter

Smaller Enhancements

  • List Fields can now be used to create conditional behaviors on the Rules tab of the DataPage wizard.
  • When defining criteria in Views, you can now use two fields between comparison types to filter data.
  • It is now possible to enable the “Inline Add” interactive editing option in tabular reports with grouping.
  • New grouping options are available for Date/Time fields in tabular reports:
    • Hours (i.e. 3 PM)
    • Date (i.e. 04/18/2018)
    • Week Number (i.e. Week 1)
    • Month (i.e. January)
  • When previewing a DataPage, the timeout/redirection URL will be ignored to make it easier to preview DataPages within your account.
  • Folder sizes are now displayed in the Files section.
