Tuesdays with Tadabase - May 2nd 2023

:dash: May’s welcoming us with a fresh breeze and even fresher updates from the team. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

:toolbox: Our engineers must have been feeling the new wind in their sails :sailboat:. This week they have-

  • Made a minor update to the API, so that you can now pass a URL parameter called “&fields=id,field_101,field_102” and it will only return those fields instead of the entire record. YAY!

  • Worked on some new pipes! These will make working with Docx and Xlsx files (Word and Excel files) a walk in the park. :wrench:

  • Added a new feature that will be rolled out in the coming days. This will allow you to set an action link that will download a file which came from a pipe request. More on this soooon. :link:

  • Added dozens of additional templates for the Dynamic Display Field to more easily utilize advanced equations on your fields. Woohoo!

  • Fixed an issue with URL Parameters when passing multiple parameters with the same name causes the page to show an error. (Pesky bugs, be gone!) :bug:

:clapper: :robot: BTS we’ve also been harnessing the power of AI! Our team is completely on the bandwagon (along with the rest of the planet) and we’re cooking up some really cool ideas - be sure to stick around, we can’t wait to share more with you! :crystal_ball:

:school_satchel: Tim’s back with a new video! This week, we’re learning 8 ways to filter data in your Tadabase app. This episode is back to basics - we’re seeing first-hand how to apply filtering to your data in different places in Tadabase and how adding filters truly transforms and brings your data to life! What are you waiting for? Check it out!

:scissors: Snippet of the week:
Adding a logged in user’s IP address to a form is easy with this snippet! Follow these easy steps and sit back and let your app do the rest.


We hope that you’ve been blown away by this one, Tadabasers. Hold onto your hats ‘till next time! :tophat:
