Feature Roadmap: Equations, Calendars, and Triggers

09/27/2012 Posted by Brandon

We’re always super excited about the new functionality we’re working on to make Knack even better. We’d thought we’d share a few of the features you’ll be seeing soon:

  • Custom Equations: we’ll be adding a new field type called Equations. You’ll be able to create custom equations using other field values and simple math. This way you can easily create fields to track totals, averages, sales commissions, etc. And it’s all in an easy point-and-click editor.
  • Calendar View: we’ll be adding a new view for displaying events and date records. This will operate very much like a Google calendar. Users will be able to shift between month, week, and day views. You can even set options for users to add events to the calendar, so scheduling and event apps will be simple to build.
  • Form Triggers: we’re taking our time with this one because we want to get it right. The idea is that after a form is submitted, you may need that submission to trigger an action. It might send an email, update another record, or simply post the form data to an API.
