Anyone Able To Help Me Build an MTH Databse

Publication date: August 13, 2018

I think that MTH will be able to do most of what I am looking for but, whilst it may be an easy interface for people with more technical skills than me, I am finding it quite difficult without a tutorial that shows you how to get started and what each of the choices in the fields options and advanced options do! I have no idea what ‘Validate on submit’ means or ‘FORMAT (REGULAR EXPRESSION’ means or what to use it for.

I am enjoying learning but I need to get my project up and running. Is there anyone that can help me put this together? I need help to create the user accounts, front interface and various reports etc.

This is probably dead easy for someone with experience of the software but for me, I think it is going to take too long to learn each part to be able to make it work.

Thanks

I need 4 basic forms
lead entry

Agent logs in and loads up relevant lead information
Admin allocates to a manager who then begins process and checks
Manager, on completion of checks, books a survey and allocates to the surveyor
Manager on completion of the survey send to installer who books and carries out the install

The agent can only see progress of his leads
Agent and manager can see all leads.

Surveyors can only see their leads

Reports of specific records can't seem to be used as data sources for charts

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hi,

I’m attempting to use a report of a database that was through specific search, meaning I only have a few of the total entries that are in the full database actually in the report. When I attempt to use the report as the data source in a chart, however, I get no bars in the bar graphs, also no lines in the line graphs above 0, either. Still, when I use the entire database for that same specific form as the data source, it will show the graphs correctly each time.

Any thoughts on this issue I’m having?

Couple of quick Qs before signing up for paid plan

Publication date: August 14, 2018

Q1: Is it possible to use mathematics in forms.

So that for instance if you have a list if items with prices could you set the database to calculate totals?

Q2: Is there any way to display or embed only CERTAIN form elements on a web page

For instance, you may want just an “analysis” web page which just shows:

Client Name / Booking Name / Technical Details / Running Total So far

Is this possible

Please could you point me in the direction of some tutorials or let me know.

Great service so far!!

Relational data

Just evaluating mytaskhelper and I have a question. In the general information you claim that this is a “MTH is a relational online database.” When I create a form. How can I add a question that may have several answers (unknown number of answers may be 4 however it could be 30)?

So far I can create a table with multiple lines but I need something a little more dynamic!

Specific Questions about security and others minute details.

Hi,

We currently use Terminalfour and Microsoft Access and both of them are falling apart or is not living up to our liking.
So my small project for the small company is to migrate our database and our web content management system to a more streamline service.
I have a couple of questions below:

Is the Database PCI compliant?
Can we upload our own document/template to make Reports?
Can you make reports using different tables on the Database?
Is it relatively simple to connect the Database and the CMS?
Can more than one person access the database?
Is there a wiki/documentation or some videos that may aid my development when working with MTH?

Thank you

User's manual

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Hi,

I’ve been working with Microsoft Access for several years and I’m used to use it’s standards.
It’s very difficult for me to understand MyTaksHelper’s philosophy as to database basics, eg. tables, indexes, references, SQL-queries, views, etc.

I would also like to know whether it is possible to create 1:many forms in MyTaksHelper. For example I have one record in Tasks table and it has several “subrecords” (subtasks) stored in (sub)table called Subtasks.

Another problem is that I do not understand how to build comboboxes (dropdown) which are based on lookup tables. For example:
lookup table: Persons (id_person AUTOINCREMENT, name VARCHAR)
Tasks: (id_task AUTOINCREMENT, id_person TINYINTEGER, …)
There a 1:many relation between Persons and Tasks.

Is there a complete manual (brochure) about how to use MTH?

Thank you very much for your time.

How to migrate from DabbleDB or InfoDome to MyTaskHelper

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Hi!



First of all, difference in terms between dabbledb or InfoDome in MTH:

The database in MTH is called the Project. The table is a Form. One project can have many forms, i.e. the Database have many tables. You’ll be able to link forms using
relationships.



To migrate from the dabbledb (or InfoDome) to MTH, please, follow these easy steps:




  • Required steps


  • 1. Backup you dabbledb database


  • 2. Signup for MTH Trial. We offer a 25% discount for dabbledb users in case of buying 1 year unlimited access. So it would cost you only $ 175.00 USD per year for the first year.


  • 3. Unarchive your dabbledb backup. It contains CSV files.


  • 4. Import your dabbledb CSV tables to MTH one by one


  • 5. If you had no luck importing your table this is most probably due to limitations on a Free Trial account, it’s 10000 records, 3 forms, 100 columns/fields, 30 users, 250Mb file storage, 3 charts. If you believe there is another issue, please, contact us.


  • 6. During import all forms will be created and you’ll be redirected to the Records page, where you’ll be able to Search, Sort, Filter, Group your table, invite team members, create Views etc.
    Basically this is all you can do in dabble. But in MTH managing form (table) structure can be done only on the Forms menu.
    So, to Edit fields, add or remove new Forms, setup relationships, field rules etc, go to the Forms menu.


  • We do not ask your column types during import, so you’ll need to adjust your field types immediately after import.










Also, please, Browse the alphabetical topic index to find more useful links, bookmark Support page.


Please, feel free to contact us at any time!

How to make you read only database, everyone can search database but not modify it

Publication date: August 15, 2018

If you need to read only your database and share it with everybody MTH is exactly what you need.
You can create a database and embed it into your web page using a database widget.

Everybody will be able to search the database and nobody will be able to edit/delete records.

However, you can enable records deletion from the database widget using such option in the database widget.

Problem with importing CSV file to create a Table/Form

Publication date: August 16, 2018

Hi,

I’m unsure as to what the root of the problem is but when I try to test the DB out by importing some of my CSV files, it won’t import and I would like to find a resolution to my problem.

May it be because the file size or the number of input data is too much?

An example CSV file is attached below for reference. Attached is the most populated of the bunch that didn’t import properly.

HTTP/HTTPS issue

Publication date: September 17, 2018

Can you help with this please. I have a acquired a new computer that I am keeping as virgin so that I can test applications. One issue that I have with my Record View html content is that IE8 and 9 display the Mixed Content message – which the only solution I know is to change the browser security settings. However, I note that on the QuintaDB web site your own examples do not have this message displayed in your demo databases.

I can see that my using my own html content I have replaced what could be the calls to prevent this, here is a paste from one your demo sites;
<br /> <!DOCTYPE html><br /> <html><br /> <head><script type="text/javascript">var NREUMQ=NREUMQ||[];NREUMQ.push(["mark","firstbyte",new Date().getTime()]);</script><br /> <title>Templates - Yellow Paper</title><br /> <meta name='robots' content='nofollow' /><br /> <meta name='norton-safeweb-site-verification' content='5nfikchek440qhex6rp4dkx9npmeh28xacb9rvrrepzszlqdkwyw-pt9y2ihu305uvqebpgyvc74zxc4yhlop2t0izzl67sl9469gy9nfm18qukwywqtobu5qd3b5hix' /><br /> <meta name='verify-v1' content='EoGNPmzsb8tOdi3BLwyMOJWLuZ+ukwVWNq6vQ7hxgzY=' /><br /> <meta name='wot-verification' content='37363603f1e6ae4be0db' /><br /> <link href='/blog.rss' rel='alternate' title='RSS' type='application/rss+xml' /><br /> <meta http-equiv='Content-Language' content='English' /><br /> <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'/><br /> <script type='text/javascript'><br /> __RULES = []<br /> </script><br /> <script src='/javascripts/all_app.js' type='text/javascript'></script><!--[if lte IE 7]><br /> <link href='http://MyTaskHelper.com/stylesheets/ie.css' media='screen' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' /><br /> <![endif]--><br /><br />


Should I be using a similar head content in my html? If so, what are the defaults?

The links are called within a Record View html directly from QuintaDB url fields. The only exception is a Mail to link calling an QuintaDB email link. There are no other links than within the QuintaDB database record. Here is a test page url;

http://www.markwardproperty.com/for_sale_ELITE_DEMO.htm


It seems that if QuintaDB calls Record View then the fact that it uses https and other links in the database are normal http that IE (fine in Firefox and Google Chrome) wants the user to respond to a badly phrased security message. For the time being I will insert a help link on the pages to explain the issue but we really should have a better work around that this. Is it possible for QuintaDB to either detect the existence of http calls and then use http to access Record View? Or is there some way that Record View be parameter set by the developer/user to use http?

I know and understand this is not an issue of your making, however if users are to feature url links in their database and call these from Record View then QuintaDB should be able to facilitate this without having web site visitors be potentially frightened away from applications by a Microsoft message.

Duplicate Form Redirect

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When duplicating a form and setting ‘Submit Data To’ to the original database, the ‘Redirect To Another Website’ option under Redirects in ‘Customize and integrate’ does not work for the duplicated form, only for the original.

Database Field Name

Publication date: August 16, 2018

Perhaps there can be a difference between the “Common Field Name” (what people see on the form) and the “Database Field Name” (what is actually used on spreadsheet or relationships. For example, the common field name can be = Student Email and the database field name could = StuEmail. By default, it could equal the common field name and if someone want to change the database field name it can be done on the validation page.

Field rules in Submit To form

1. Duplicate the form and test… field rules are OK.


2. Use Advanced Settings to write data of duplicated form to another central database


3. Field rules are then corrupted and resulting form is useless.

Same Database - Two Views

Publication date: August 20, 2018

I have been thinking it would be very handy to be able to have more than one view displayed on my sites from the same database.

Is this possible within the existing framework?

Create full change logging and field history

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Per the Advanced Options it looks like the DB logs changes – at least Create and Update times.

You should also enable “full audit” logging, so that it records value changes and users effecting changes, and with the implement an automatic “History” view of a record or field.

Line Colours in Online Database Table

Publication date: August 20, 2018

As we continue using our database and the number of records increases the need for a new feature arose.


Would it be possible to have each line in online database table to be coloured differently depending on a value of a certain field of each particular record ?


This will be useful to anyone working with clients.


Example: The line of a certain record in a database table (online) will show in red if “renewal date” filed value is less than current date; will show green if “renewal date” filed value is more than today’s date.


Example 2: The line of a certain record in a database table (online) will show in red if “status” filed value contains word “pending”; show green if “status” field value contains word “completed” etc.


A combination (“or”/“and”) of just 2-3 conditions could turn it into a very powerful tool that would dramatically increase efficiency of work.

Imagine opening database and seeing at a glance what needs your attention on the fist place…

Accountants will LOVE it !

Relational database request

Publication date: August 20, 2018

When a relational database is created and then linked to it’s form the drop down field generated does not have an option to select a default, this will lead to problems with data entry as it is inevitable that a user will forget to make a selection and then all field rules and image fields that are brought into the database are null and void. I can see no way around this issue other than MTH to allow an optional default selection for the SELECT drop down that is created.

Subdomains

Publication date: August 20, 2018

It would be great to add Subdomains to MTH. This way Companies can have URL for their database, like this:

CompanyName.MyTaskHelper.com,

and when they open this link they will see Login page, with the ability to upload their own Company Logo. So it would be like the door to their companies portal.

Also this way we’ll reduce link size, it will not have /apps/app_id part. It will be still long, but better then now.

Add New Record link

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Igor

Is it possible to add an option to have “Add New Record” link on top of the Editable Database table, next to Pagination for example, or before it. Clicking on it would show Add New Record form below the table OR in the same Window as the Whole New page.

The above would eliminate the need to always have both Database and Form links at hand.

Will be extremely handy !

Thank you

Editable/non-Editable Database Links

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Hello Igor

It would significantly enhance the possibilities of the system if users are given a choice of Editable AND non-Editable links (both Embanded and Direct) at the same time simultaniously.

At the moment as a user I can only choose to have one of the above. However, ideally I would need to give my client a link to the table that is only possible to view and to my employees the link to the same table that would give an option to Edit. Without need to log it to mytaskhelper website.

I understand that the above would probably mean significant amount of work, but the result is obvious. Then, also, there will be no need for a “tick” to be put to allow users to edit records as those unauthorized to edit would just be given non-editable link.

Whould you be looking at something like the above. I know there was a similar request already to do multi profile (if I’m not mistaken).

Thank you

Artem

Redirections for online Edit mode

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Dear Igor

It will be very useful for the layout of the database to have Redirection features for Edit mode online.

When I click “Edit” next to any table entry and after making changes click “Update”, I would prefer to be redirected somewhere else, rather than see Brief details of what I’ve just edited. Especially taking into account that it only shows those items that I have not specefied as hidden initially, not necessarely including the field that I’ve just edited.

I’m sure other users will find it useful too.

Many thanks again.

Label placement property for Edit Mode

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Hi

First of all would like to thank you for the excellent product and trully GREAT customer support.

I have few vital things that are missing for me in Customize and Integrate module however.

Here is one:

Online Form properties have an option to set Label placement (Top aligned, Left aligned, Right aligned), however, Database Edit form (which looks exactly the same) does not have it and when I press Edit in Database Table online (if enabled of course), the same form is shown only in Top Aligned mode on default and there is no way to set it for Left Aligned (which is nicer and more organised).

I would really need this to be configurable as well.

Many thanks,

Artem

Update existing entries via import (match on record ID)

Publication date: August 20, 2018

This is a must-have feature that was incredibly useful in DabbleDB. As a application developer, it is often necessary to have users outside the database update information that is inside the database. In this situation, it is critical to be able to bulk update existing records. There are also cases where it is simply faster to manipulate/update data in bulk in Excel and import it back into the database.

Here’s the link to the DabbleDB description of the feature: http://blog.dabbledb.com/2008/10/plays-well-with.html

Column Heading

Publication date: August 20, 2018

I gave a class today to 7 people from the organization (Christian Friends of New Americans – CFNA) for which this database supports. There were 2 suggestions from then – one follows:

Since there may be many records on a page and there may be many columns per record, when a User scrolls-down a page, they may not remember what a particular column is for, so, they have to scroll back up to determine this.

Please devise a way to “freeze” the column heading (like they can in a spreadsheet) such that, when they scroll-down, this column heading always shows.
