    • Allow Add or Remove folders inside the Files tab

      Currently you only have the option to use the Import or Export folder. I would like to create folders here to store files I want to link to.

        • enable a checkbox reset for entire form

          There should be a check box reset for the entire form database item. This is especially useful when one is creating a list that is meant to be re-usable as a check list. for example, a list like "things to bring"

            • FTP Client capability

              For corporate clients the ability for a field worker to upload their completed data (in CVS or XML) to an FTP server on the Web would be remarkable. I have not had this software long but it appears that the current capability is to send to email or to act as an FTP or WebDav Server. This functionality would be that the software acted as an FTP client and could upload the exported data to a server on the internet where it could be pulled down into a corporate database by the company - even on an automated basis. This…

                • Several suggestions, actually...

                  1) Create a field that autofills automatically, such as for a library where things are stored by number...1, 2, 3, and so on. This would be a unique identifier and not able to be duplicated by any other number in that particular form's data (you already have a unique identifier that is hidden until exported to CSV).
                  2) Have a way to export or import those quick pick lists, particularly if you are sharing data between two devices.
                  3) Have a way to "beam" a form (and all its data) with all choices used in that form between two devices…

                    • Tap Forms for Dummies

                      The App. is really superb, but to use at it's best maybe it would be of use to have a guide. I mean something for an average user like I am and have sometimes problems to understand every single setting or feature.
                      Maybe some more clips?

                      • extend the URL scheme

                        While I realize the basic URL scheme for opening the app exists, it would be nice if the capability to open a database or even open a record within a database.

                        Why would this be helpful?

                        If you are sharing a database and have hundreds of records, I might send the link to a colleague of mine, referencing the link, which he/she can open and see all the details.

                        Or

                        If I create a QR code for such a link and I put these QR codes on my stuff, I can quickly scan the QR code with any QR decoder,…

                          • mailto feature

                            I was wondering if we could have a mailto preset - such that on e-mailing a form the e-amil address(es) is already selected?

                            • Display pick list without the extra click

                              When entering a field designated as a pick list, there should be an option to 'force' only the data offered as acceptable. This would mean that instead of the user seeing a text box and having to press a button to get the pick list, that they are only offered the pick list. For example - on a questionaire for Sex: Male or Female, the user should just be offered the pick list and not the text field and button first.

                              • Cover Flow View

                                It would be great to have coverflow in landscape mode, specially when there are photos in the forms. The photos could flip with a tap, to show the rest of the field entries. There can be a limit to the number of fields shown. And for forms without any photos one could customize which fields they want visible in coverflow view and also the ones they want to see when it's flipped. The way there are different icons for different forms, there could be different form themes/types to choose from.
                                This will make viewing and navigation easier for the chosen…

                                • Add basic form layout elements

                                  Such as separators (to delineate between sections), and perhaps labels and text boxes at the form level (i.e., not field or record-specific). This would be very helpful on forms with many fields.

                                  • Forms repository

                                    I'd hate to have to re-invent the wheel for common forms everyone needs.

                                    An online repository of user-submitted forms, importable into the app, would make your app more marketable--even more useful right out of the box, so to say.

                                    • add sync to an open format file (API)

                                      The idea is to just establish a sync between a Tapform Form and a simple file on the desktop and/or an external server that would be clearly documented, such as an XML or JSON file that as a minimum would only have to contain the entry type, the content and the last change date. This way, you would have a working API for power users wishing to sync their custom apps to Tapform and as a minimum people could just edit the Form data in Excel etc. and thereby enter data more easily than on the iphone.

                                        When will it be possible to displa several fields on the same line by e.g. deciding that fields A and B will display on 1/2 line?

                                        • Update on import / export functionality

                                          When you import you should provide two options.
                                          Give the option to create a new Form from a CSV file or be able to append the records from a CSV file into an existing Form.

                                          For exporting, well that’s simple. Just export everything.

                                            Currently exporting will export everything. But import will require the fields to be the same as the fields in the form that you are importing into. I realize it will be more useful to be able to auto-create forms based on a CSV file and that will come. Just the first version of import will require the form to be pre-made.

                                            If you do an export, we will export the unique row identifier that will be processed upon import and will update pre-existing records.

                                          • Don't see your idea?
