Release Notes

Triggered Actions

With the new Triggered Actions feature, you can define your application logic through a visual interface. In a Table, Triggered Actions can be created and executed on specified data events (i.e. insert, update or delete) to perform additional data changes and complex data calculations on the same table and other tables.

In this initial release, Triggered Actions focuses on data manipulation and application logic. In future updates, we are planning to support triggered emails, SMS messages and more.

Triggered Actions are available in Professional and higher plans at no additional cost.

App Overview

We have redesigned the App Overview page to show useful information about your apps, as well as tips to help guide new users in building Caspio applications.

Enhancements to List Data Types

  • Parameters can now be received or passed to a List Data Type field in DataPages.

Figure 4 – Parameters for List Data Types

 

  • Because a comma is used as a separator between each list item value, the comma character will be encoded as “%2C” when the field is used as a parameter.
  • In search forms, you can now choose the behavior for blank list fields. One option is to ignore the criteria, and the other is to return records with blank values in the list field.
  • The following options are now available when converting data types in Table Design:
    • Text Data Types can be converted to a corresponding List Data Type.
    • List Data Types can be converted from any sub-type (String, Number, Date) to another.
    • Note: Data loss may occur when trying to convert to incompatible data types and a warning message will appear prior to the conversion.

Performance Improvements

We have made significant performance improvements to the load time of objects, particularly if you have a large number of DataPages, tables, views or files.
