Received 401 Unauthorized response with REST request

Publication date: April 17, 2019

I am trying to fetch all form records using the documented pattern ‘/apps/APP_ID/dtypes/entity/ENTITY_ID.json’ in Java 8, with Retrofit2, and Gson to handle JSON stuff, but I received 401 response no matter how I try.
The complete URL can produce valid response in Chrome browser, but receives only brackets([]) in Safari.
I tried to set an API key in the body, but the Retrofit framework complained that body is not acceptable in a GET method. That seems to violate the specifications of HTTP 1.1.
Then I tried to use POST method instead, got the same 401 response.
I have no idea. Is there any operational sample written in Java?

Thank you.

How to have Action triggers once, but not on all Record Edits?

Publication date: April 30, 2019


Anyway to prevent “Actions” to run only once and from re-triggering after a record has been edited? I have trigger for when a File field is “not empty.” Anytime that record is edited, the Action gets runs again if a file has already been uploaded.

Is there a way or Condition that only triggers if “on change” or something like that? I also tried an extra validation field in the Action conditions (yes/no) but since its value is saved it is only useful for the initial edit.

1) Anyway to run Actions once per-record or prevent from running
2) Anyway to reset a form field to a value – regardless of what was saved in the record?

Workflow to help: Person X submits initial form → Person Y receives notice from Allow End-User Edits Notification, and uploads a file to that record via Edit Records → Action is triggered by the file being uploaded to the record and email sent to Person Z

Moved form - lost data

Hey, I moved a form from one project to another and seem to have lost all my records in the process. The form appears blank!

The form was a list of philanthropic donors who have given to our charity. The data is incredibly valuable. I do hope this hasn’t been lost!

A screen shot suggests that the information is still in the system somehow, but it’s appearing blank.

Send information from one form to different record tables depending on selection

Publication date: August 15, 2018

I have a form for creating student results and when filing out that form I would like the record to be sent to different forms depending on the selection from one of the fields in the original form. For example, we have students in year 10, 11 and 12. We have learning outcomes (student results) for year 10, 11 and 12 but we would like to be able to have each entered result split into different forms. So when filling out the form, If select year 10, the record will then be sent to the year 10 form etc.

I'd created a form, but need to query the data from a website.

Publication date: August 10, 2018

I am a new user needing to know where to go in setup to create a form (with embedded code) for a website to enter data into a single field and return the results of this query showing all results. It’s probably simple, but couldn’t figure it out. Thanks. Hopefully, this could be helpful to new subscribers.

'Add' link on relationship fields

Is there a way to remove/hide/disable the ‘Add’ link underneath a relationship field if you want to prevent users from creating new target records from within the base record?

"Back" button and other issue

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hello MTH,

One persistent bug that I have encountered is with the “back” button. To recreate the issue, go to our database and enter the search term “Florida.” The second entry (at least in this moment) is Yoanly Savon. Click on the #2 on the far left. After going to the page, then click “back.” The page that you return to is the original home page, not the “Florida” search results. Is it possible to rectify this?

The other issue is more straight forward. When I enter a search term like “Florida,” I’d like to be able to hit “enter” and see the results, but the program necessitates hitting the “Search!” button. Can this feature be added?

Thank you for all of your help.

Access rights

Publication date: August 13, 2018

I’m experimenting a little to see what I could do with MTH.
I haven’t manage to find how to set user-specific rights to see certain rows or columns other than defining that a user can see only his/her own records or all records.
We have projects where we define in the beginning of the project which of our employees and our customer contacts should be able to see the status, comments, details and files of the project, regardless of which team member has added the comments, details or files. Then it would be good if we could design the view presented to employees to look a little different than the views presented to the clients (The clients should not see all columns/fields).
Can this be done in MTH?
Best regards,

RE: Duplicate entries in database

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am finding duplicate entries in my database after entering a search term. To recreate the issue, set your search for “ALL” “like” “drugs” in the three search lines. Hit enter. You should see 657 rulings.

I transcribed all of the rulings into an excel file and have been finding dozens of duplicates. What I’m noticing is that anything above 500 tends to be a duplicate. I have confirmed that I have not accidentally entered the information twice (though I’m sure this is still a possibility, generally speaking). The database itself is reporting duplicates after a search.

For example, ruling #39 (of 657) and ruling #514 (of 657) are the same. I’ve confirmed that this ruling is listed a single time in the database, but it shows up twice in the list when I enter the above search terms.

Can you help me out with this?

Thank you,

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

Publication date: August 13, 2018


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.

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.

Lookup & Filtering

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Team records can be filtered by a user. For instance students added by each user can only be seen by that user (and the administrator in records). But if records are accessed in a relationship drop-down those records are not and cannot be filtered so that the logged in user can only select from their “added by” students. Is this correct?

Fetch report records REST API

Publication date: August 14, 2018

I tried to fetch the report records using the documented API URL and query parameters, but the MTH server seems to reply the whole table every time, instead of the report which filters out some of the records.
I’ve checked the log of my program and the formulated HTTP GET request is:
Some of the parameter values have been replaced with bracketed holders in order to protect sensitive information.

Publication date: August 14, 2018

We can configure to show these fields in the table, but in the search panel, we can’t use these fields as search criteria.
More often than not, we want to utilize these timestamps to find out the freshly updated/inserted records, instead of using a date/time input field, which can be wrongly set by the user.

I’ve tried sending out a test-newsletter but it did not arrive. Am I cleared to be able to send such a newsletter or is there still something I’m supposed to do before I can do this?

Records updated email

Dear MTH team,

Yesterday we made a change to the format of the subject line for the email notification on record create. This change worked great but when records are updated the email that is sent is still sending with the old format. I believe this is due to only the subject line being changed and the standard email sent on updates does not use the same format. Is there a way for us to customize the email subject for records that are updated?

Bug between my records

Publication date: August 15, 2018

I am cleaning the data that I imported and I have discovered that several of the records are connected to each other and when I choose “select theater” for one, it changes the other.

There are two Cherry Lane Theatre entries that are linked, one to the Cleveland Public, another to Company One.

The internet audience would have complete access to enter data and inquire?

Column Sorting Issue

Import Function - Mal Function

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When we import a file to to create new rewords is Mal Functions:

Firstly – after importation – it shows all records have been imported, but when we go back to the records and update the view, the view does not show the records that we have updated.

Obviously we tried a few times.

Secondly – We tried to see if the records might be created – so we did a duplicate search, And there were 3 duplicates of each record.

1. Why does the records that were imported not display in the view after importation?

2. Why does create new allow duplicates to be created – does it not check the validation limitations on the system?

Please fix this problem

Sorting and Pagination issues

Publication date: August 16, 2018

1. Widget (Integrated Database) view. While it is possible to set the number of records to be viewed for a widget that is generated as a result of search (saved search) MTH ignores this when displaying records within an iframe and always displays the number of records of the prime database.

2. Sort. When a record is edited or when a new record is added the default sort criteria set by the user for a widget is ignored and the database re-sorts based on the most recently entered record.

Back link missing

2. Update part of the information.
3. You will get into the “Record Widget”

Formula fields - images and record view mode

Publication date: August 16, 2018

1. I created a formula using an image field + null image (empty) which computes correctly.

2. In widget view this displays correctly and the image location url is correct. All good so far.

3. In record view mode the MTH dynamic link works correctly. It does so by using the img src= syntax followed by an abbreviated url, for example; img src=‘/images/data/dcPmobW7LgW4BcI8o2W7b7/c4W4hdVSjisjfBW7LSgcjZ/agent-pic.png’ – this where the field inserted was |image link|

The above is OK in a limited way.
The problem is that it does not allow the image derived from the formula to be used in any practical way as it can not be opened by the href tag because the syntax img src= is built into the output from MTH into Record View mode.

This strange because as noted above the url location of the Widget view image is correctly output and displayed.

Is it not possible to output the whole url without the img src= prefix into the Record View? This way the user can decide how they will use the url output, for example img src=‘http://www.mytaskhelper.com/images etc etc’ or indeed href= “http://www.mytaskhelper.com/images etc etc” or both together to open an image link.

I have tried using java to unstring the syntax that MTH passes to Record View mode for a dynamic link. No success.

The project I am designing uses 4 MTH relationships where each database contains images of localities and properties. For example, in data entry the user selects a relational database that contains 10 images of a property, these are then passed to the master form using a formula. All works nicely.

But when the MTH dynamic link for the field passed in displayed in Record View it comes in with the the prefix of img src rather than the real url for the image, which is correctly shown in widget view.

This means that I either have to display small images in Record View mode that can not be opened using href and therefore useless or place all images in the master form, which is defeats the object of the design.

Graphic into a Formula Field

Publication date: August 16, 2018

This is not acceptable in a VIEW mode, e.g., if I were to show others all or a subset of the ContactInfo Records and scroll to the right to show the “Language” table’s “Name” field, an EMPTY-looking drop-down appears for ALL these Records – if a drop-down for a Record is clicked, then the previously set value will display, but, this should NOT be necessary to do – in the VIEW mode, the previously set values for these drop-down fields should display automatically (if muliple values are set, then, all of these previously set values should display – either on the same line, seperated by a seperator character, or, via multiple lines).

Requied Value for "is not empty"

Publication date: August 16, 2018

In the Records area, I tried to do a “search” for ones with a Birthday that is not empty, but, it required me to enter a value (it should not require this).

Records - Page No. - Not Working

Publication date: August 16, 2018

On the Records view, the “Page No.” drop-down shows the correct no., but, since the system allows the User to change it, there’s an assumption that changing to another page no. will navigatge the User to that page – it doesn’t (it just stays on the same page).

Conditional Logic for Non-Attendance

Publication date: August 17, 2018

Say we are due to go to a site every day of the week.

If we don’t record an entry in the day for that site. Can we generate an email as an exception to normal? Or a report? Or…?

In-place editing to speed up data entry and record appends

Publication date: August 17, 2018

Is it possible to create a “quick verify” form where:

MTH “single line” field formats in a record can be entered into and modified without clicking the edit pencil. See image quick_verify.png: Record #2. Change the First Name, Last Name, and phone….

— a hot link is attached to each record (possibly unique ID), that will take a data entry person to the record in the “Add a record” form and then back to the “Quick Verify” records screen. This would make it quick to append check box formatted fields etc…

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.

I would like one where the administration staff can delete a record (for example)on one view, however the user cannot delete a record on another view of the same data.

Is this possible within the existing framework?

Email Newsletter - include related records

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Could it be possible to email a set of related records.

For example, lest say I have a Form called PEOPLE and a related form called THINGS. Let’s say that an PEOPLE record can have many THINGS.

Could it be possible to email a PEOPLE record person a listing of the THINGS records associated with the PEOPLE.

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.

Merge Duplicates

Publication date: August 20, 2018

In the database we uses prior to MTH there was a feature to “merge” duplicate records so that links aren’t broken to other forms. Can we please have the ability to do this in MTH? We have several people adding contacts and sometimes they don’t find the original record and add people again. Thank you!

Column order

Publication date: August 20, 2018

It would be very useful if we could setup column order to be shown on the records page.

Currently the order is determined by the position of the field at the form, but sometimes the information we need to see more often is requested at the middle or end of the form.

It would be easy to change the form arrangement but it turns out that most of the time it’s not the best solution because of the form’s logic.

For example, if you are interested on due date, then you should be able to set due date’s column at the beginning of the records, but you wouldn’t ask for a due date at the form if you don’t have the general information of the task first.

If you need extra information, I’ll be glad to provide it!

Images to view in Records

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Hi, I am building a form to collect photo entries for a contest. People will upload their photos in jpeg form onto the form. But in the Records pages, is there a way I can view a thumbnail of the image uploaded? At the moment it is just a linked image file which I have to ‘right click’ to open and save on my computer.

Also, if this is possible, can I attach a thumbnail of the images into the Success email back to the entrant, so they have confirmation that their images are uploaded correctly?

Thank you, Steven

Save record

Would it be possible to stay on the same screen after making record changes ?

Printing Records

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Can we have a feature to allow us to search records and then sprint the results.

Pagination Options

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Hello Igor

I just realised that Pagination only gives maximum of 200 records per page. Is it possible to add “All Records” option to it.

It it very important especially in line with Total of the column feature. I’ll explain. If I set numeric column to display Total at the bottom and there are more than 200 records in a database, there is no chance for me to display total of all records, since Total feature will only adds up displayed items (20, 40, … or 200 maximum) and not all of them..

So the only way out is to either show all records on one page or ask you to change the way Totaling at the bottom works. First option is easier I believe.

Thank you.

Create a Default Option to Repeat the last record

Publication date: August 20, 2018

It would be nice if you could create a default value of the last value entered in the data base.

Row 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 to the right, they may not remember what this record is for (e.g., which “Contact”), so, they have to scroll left to determine this.

Please devise a way to “freeze” the “row” heading (like they can in a spreadsheet) such that, when they scroll right, this row heading always shows. Like a spreadsheet, ideally, they would be able to select which columns to “freeze”, e.g., Last Name, First Name, etc.

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.

Record - Copy

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Please add a “Copy” function for Records, e.g., I may add another Record that is exactly the same as another, except for 1 Field; so, this function would be veey appreciated.

Import from XLS/CSV File

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Instead of importing from a set of records that have been copied & pasted from a text file, it would much appreciated to be able to just Browse and select a file that’s either an XLS or CSV type of file, with the option of specifying that it has a header row or not.


Publication date: August 20, 2018

Many databases have a Field Type of an automatic sequence no. (better if it allowed a gap, e.g. automatically increment by 10 or 100 – this allows an insertion, which should be allowed, in-between existing records).

Initial Value

Publication date: August 20, 2018

When I define a Field, I’d like to set it to an initial value (this is a very commonn feature for databases), as I don’t really want to have to update ALL the records to do this.

Hide Entries from Database Widgets View

Publication date: August 20, 2018

is it possible to hide entry from the records?rather than to delete the entries for future use…i want to hide some entry from the database widget rows, so that online user cant view it…and manually schedule for them to view after i unhide row entries from records entry.

Allow creation of checkboxes for record search

Publication date: August 20, 2018

When creating a database search, allow the creation of a search form that you can list choices. Such as…
5:00am to 6:00am
6:00am to 7:00 am
7:00 am to 8:00 am

These would match entries in the database

Adding records to existing database

Publication date: February 11, 2019


I am testing QuintaDB with the view to using it for a large collection database at a Museum.
I have been able to easily and quickly import from a spreadsheet but need to know whether I can add further records to the same database using the import from Excel method and if so how?


Blank records

Publication date: February 19, 2019


Thank you of the QuintaDB account enabling to make a new database. I have started with a simple three forms that have relationship links.

I am entering data into the ‘apartment’ form. Each record is a brief description of the apartment in terms of size, bedroom number, aspect, bathrooms etc. What I am finding is as I enter them, there are blank records also created. I have tried ‘editing’ the blank records (ie adding in apartment data) but there are so many of them!

I assume this is some setting that I need to alter, so please advise how I can prevent new blank records.

Thank you.
