This release contains some highly-requested features to help you build more powerful applications and automate more data management tasks.
Advanced Search and Filtering Logic in Views and Report DataPages
We have introduced a drag-and-drop logic builder in the DataPage and Views Wizards to help you create more advanced criteria for filtering data.
Prior to this release, you had a choice between AND or OR for the logical operator between your search fields in Report DataPages. With this new enhancement, you can now build more complex search criteria using the new Logic tab.
You will still use the Elements tab to add new fields and criteria to your search, and initially, all of your elements will be set to AND by default. Simply click over to the Logic tab to customize the elements to choose AND/OR combinations and even nested logic.
A similar Criteria tab is also available in the Views Wizard where you can build complex filtering criteria for your Views.
This feature is available immediately in all Caspio plans.

Caspio offers powerful import/export capabilities both on-demand and as scheduled tasks using DataHub. Previously when importing data, you could create a new table, replace an existing table, or append to an existing table. This new feature gives you the ability to easily update the fields of an existing table based on any new or changed data.
Here’s how it works … First, you specify a unique field (such as user ID or email address) to match the importing data with the existing data. Using the matched field, any new or changed data from the import file will update the appropriate fields the Caspio table. The fields and records in the existing table that are not in the import file are left unchanged.
Please note that a single record can be updated multiple times during the same import if it is listed in the import file several times, with the last instance being the final update.
Not only does this feature streamline your data updates, it also helps you reduce import times and data transfer since you will only need to import changes to your data.
Corporate and Business plans include this feature automatically and it is available as an add-on in Standard plans.

New DataHub Repositories
DataHub gives you the ability to import and export data from external repositories. Prior to this release, depending on the availability of DataHub in your plan, the following repositories and protocols were supported: FTP, SFTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, SMTP (for export by email) and Amazon S3.
In this release, we have added DataHub integration with the following cloud storage services: Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox and Box.
Corporate plans include this feature automatically and it is available as an add-on in Standard plans.

New Security Feature in Password Change
If you are providing your app users with the ability to change their passwords, now you can require them to first enter their current password before their new password is accepted. This is a best practice and we recommend you take advantage of it.
This feature is available in all plans.
