  1. im/export or share forms through spreadsheets.google.com

    it seems that spreadsheets.google.com can use csv file, tap forms should add import and export to google docs, and some public forms also can share by an offical google docs account in the tap forms users

      • Add another view under Favorites for Forms

        It’s good that I can simply click on a record in my Favorites to open it up. But I would like to click on a Form in my Favorites to open the list of records.
        When you have created 20+ Forms it gets pretty challenging scrolling through the list to find it.
        So, why not create two sections (or two views) under Favorites. Simply create two icons at the top right that will switch between favorites for Records and favorites for Forms. By default have it list Records when you open Favorites. Make it similar to how you did Search.…

          • Allow automatic syncing of a form to dropbox after adding records

            The export of a form is great, but it would be much easier if we could set up Tapforms to sync a selected form to dropbox after adding records to it.

            • Make it a Relational Database

              So I can link one form field (eg. Job Numbers) to another so that changes made in a field that needs consistancy is maintained. e.g. the "contacts list" is relational - changes made in contacts is shown in the form

              • Better way for Backup/Restore and Import/Export

                Nice update to the app. Unfortunately, having to download a separate desktop application for Backup/Restore (SyncDocs) and a separate FTP third party application for Import/Export (Files) on the desktop is quite a drag. Is there a much simpler way to implement these features to the TapForms app?

                • Be able to have Multiple answers

                  What about having a check box and say choose your answer
                  ie. White. Black. Red. Blue.
                  Tick next the one that is correct
                  will make it quicker and easy when entering data

                  • Add the ability to swipe through photos

                    For multiple photos attached within a single record, add the ability to tap to enlarge (as it works currently) and then be able to swipe left/right to go to the next/previous attached photo.

                      • Add functionality to provide default value for a field

                        Provide checkbox for all fields to enable default values. When checked, show textfield for hardcoded value input.

                        Example: a field named Copies of Book in a book catalog has a checkbox "Has default value." When checked, textfield appears to user; user inputs the value 1.

                        Imports: May need an additional Yes/No for this option to 'populate when null?' for imports. Default set to Yes. When set to no, value remains null; when set to yes, value is populated with default value for all null values. If field is not null, honor value already present in import field.

                          • Ability to import new form icons and delete them

                            I would like to be able to import new form icons based on the size that your using.
                            So, if its 32x32 for example I would like to import it and be able to use it for the new custom forms I create.
                            And also give the ability to delete the icons that I import.
                            You can lock the core form icons down so that no one can delete them. But the ones you import you can allow them to be deleted.
                            So, you'll have two form icons. Default Form Icons and Custom Form Icons that's imported.
                            The default cannot…

                              This is a good idea. For now however, you can use the built-in camera on an iPhone to take a photo that you’d like to use as a Form icon. iPod touch and iPhone users can also select a photo from the photo library to use as a Form icon.

                            • View records (non edit) mode

                              With a large database of information, sometimes you just want to view the records, not specifically edit them. A view-only mode would be nice when opening a database - it would probably be faster too. If a user then decides to edit a record, they could maybe click an Edit button or something to enter edit-mode.

                                I have an iPod Touch and cannot use the recorder.
                                But would like have this Field Type point to any of the music, podcast or video files.
                                Clicking it would play whatever its pointing to.

                                  We have a new Files section in Tap Forms 1.5 which will give you access to playing media files within Tap Forms without the need for a new field type. However, we may extend that to add the ability to add a file attachment field type.

                                • Export subforms along with the main form

                                  Great that the database is now relational. It would be nice if when exporting a record the export would include the sub records or even better if you could design your own export form.

                                  • Export pictures and audio with database data

                                    I'd suggest that TapForms make a way to export pictures and audio with the data somehow. I know the pictures would work fine in Excel, for example. The pictures are trashed with the CSV format.

                                    • Gobal Filtering System Based on a Saved Search

                                      Create and save a filtered subset of records within a list view. Essentially a saved search. Example: Search on a Movies Form for all movies I want to view as a subset of all my movies (viewed and want to view) and provided a list of only those.

                                      • barcodes and autocomplete

                                        As per cjs94's request posted on the Forum page 3 days ago, a barcode scanner which auto completed a form to enable faster upload to an inventory (e.g. books, DVDs) would be brilliant.

                                        • to be able to look up info from Amazon from your title

                                          If your making an inventory of things in your home, to be able to get the info and price from Amazon on the product. i.e if you had a DVD just enter the title or take a photo of the bar code and it would look it up at Amazon and paste the info in for you. This may have to be done on a desktop version.
