Download feature

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Great application. Everything I need. However, it would be great to have a download as pdf or excel feature on the table, instead of export.

Formatting Inquiries

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hello Igor and team,

Thank you for your previous help… much appreciated.

I have a couple of questions if you don’t mind.

Q1 (attached screenshot) – when trying to export PDF in the Record table that I made in Arabic, I get the letters all scrambled up. I tried using the Language icon in the records builder to switch the language to Arabic, but no luck. The Excel seems fine and so does the Print option. Only extorting to PDF seems to not work.

Q2 (attached screenshot) – when reviewing the Record table with a picture inserted, the picture doesn’t take a bigger size. Clicking on it opens the original size, but I’m trying to have a single records sheet printed with the picture bigger and more visible. I edited the image size in Forms > Upload > Advanced Options, but no matter the size I set, it only affects the Embedded Table Preview, not the Record that I created. Is there a way to make the pictures bigger in the Records table?

Thank you so much for your help.

export excel sends no excel file

Publication date: August 14, 2018

Hi Igor

hopefully last question on this project.
The export is not working correctly. I can’t get an excel file back.
see example

Is it possible to upload an excel file as template for exporting?

Publication date: August 14, 2018

Although I can export the table in plain excel format and then copy all the data to the already formatted excel file and then adjusted to match the destination format, I have to do this every day in order to make it suitable for a report. It would be a great time saver if the exported xls file is already in the desired format. I think this can be done if I upload the prepared formatted excel as a template and set it as the template of each export.

export to excel from table widget

Publication date: August 15, 2018

How and where do I define e-mail address to which exports are sent? (per report if possible)

File Downloads Are WRONG

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Thanks for changing the way the export works.

However there is a major issue. The linked columns are not being included in the downloads. This makes the data corrupt and not useful.

PDF/XLS export not working

Publication date: August 16, 2018

It’s been many weeks since we’ve been able to export any search of filter results as either PDF or XLS. I’ve tried multiple searches as simple as 2 line results and nothing will export. Help?

Excel file doesn't contain relationship columns

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I found that when using the Excel export feature in an embedded iframe coded webpage, the created file does not contain the relationship columns.

If you export the same form by logging into MTH account, it will actually export a proper file with all the columns in place.

If you need extra information let me know and I’ll be glad to provide it.

Thanks in advance!

PDF Export - No "Table" View + Missig Field

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I noticed that when using the PDF Export, that if I specify “Table” View, instead of “Individual” View, then, it doesn’t send any email at all, as it does if I just specify “Individual” instead.

Also, with “Individual”, many of the records shown do NOT include the first field “Last Name”.

Export to PDF does NOT get emailed

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I’d love to use the new “export to PDF” feature, but, after trying it (selecting 8 1/2 by 11; landscape), though a message was displayed that it was supposed to be emailed to me, it was never received (not in Spam either).

Export not = Backup

Publication date: August 16, 2018

If I exported all the tables in my database, this is not a backup. If for some terrible reason, MTH went out of business, these exports would not help me determine which of the records in a “reference table” should be linked to its associated “main” table, since the “primary keys” and “foreign keys” are transparent.

Member - Export/Import

Publication date: August 16, 2018

For a “Member” (read-only), the “Import” link should be disabled (better if it’s not even shown), but, the “Export” link should be shown (it’s not) and should enabled.

Since there isn’t any reporting feature (yet), these type Users should have a way to get a report on this data (an export to a spreadsheet is an alternative) – they can’t change the database by just exporting, so, there’a no harm, and, if someone didn’t want them to export, they shouldn’t have access to view this data online.

Description Text

Publication date: August 17, 2018

A great addition to the PDF export would be to add the ability to include either Description Text or Field Instructions in the PDF export. This would greatly enhance inspection forms as the details of each inspection point can be added, documented and printed as desired without having to be added to the table/spreadsheet as a column header.

Export as Excel

Publication date: August 20, 2018

I think it would be an excellent addition if we had the option to export to Excel via download rather than email. I just discovered that you have download capability built into the Team member export (so it may not be a complicated addition) — and it would be a most useful addition for my clients.

Thank you,

Russell

Online (but not ecommerce) Order Process

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Hi

what we are looking to provide is a process to make online ordering (but not ecommerce) easier. It also needs to provide the facility to have the data entered during the process exported to a multi line csv or excel file.

The process envisaged will have 3 steps: see attached document http://mytaskhelper.com/images/data/btxTV1vGHiI4Ckm1CRK4B8/dQrgSYd95eW53OJCuP-Fdt/orderprocessspec.pdf for images of required inputs & outputs

Step 1: Enter Client / Order Header info
- a standard form to collect name, email, delivery & invoice addresses etc
- (no problem to achieve with existing functionality)

Step 2: Enter multiline information
- a form to collect the product detail and the personalisation requirements for each product
- needs to be linked to Client Details entered previously (note: I envisage that these 2 collection steps will be 2 discrete forms as in an e-commerce checkout environment – however it doesn’t have to be so!)

Step 3: Output ‘Order Details’
- as now send an email to the form administrator
- provide export capability to allow excel file to be output with the collected information – as per the layout attached


Thanks
John

Exporting database from database widget

Publication date: August 20, 2018

At present it is only possible to download to excel via the records page. I wondered whether it would be possible to also add an export link to the database code produced from the widget which you could activate as you wish if you wanted that feature on certain databases so that they could be directly exported if the person viewing wanted to download thedatabase in excel format. I know it is possible to add more ‘team’ members and get them to access from the record section of the MTH site but didnt really want to do it that way

Regards

Andy

exporting and importing data from and into excell

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Thanks you for your great work!

Question:

I like the option importing and exporting from excell files into and out of the database system!

I was wondering if it would be possible to export a ’ selection’ of the records into an excell spreadsheet.
For example, after using the search options, you get a useful selection and want to export it to an excell spreadsheet

so far i seems only possible to export the
whole database, rather than the selected record.

thanks,
Christien
