  1. Fabrik Global Options (for PDF)

    as there are some Fabrik global options relating to PDF, it would be nice to add one global about default document format (Letter, A4),
    instead of having to configure it everywhere.

      • accordion-style/collapsible sections in form edit (left side)

        same as editing a list. for some reason the sections are not collapsible when editing a form.

        • website Login form using QR code scanned from a mobile device (like web.whatsapp.com)

          Maybe a really hard implementation, but could be very usefull.

          • Add a filter dropdown in Admin to filter shown lists/forms/groups/elements by connection

            In Fabrik Admin, add a dropdown beside the "-Select Status-" dropdown, with the default selection being "-Select Connection-".

            The items in the dropdown would be the connections defined under the Connections tab. The dropdown would filter the shown lists/forms/groups/elements by the chosen connection.

            One corner-case/problematic issue would be how to filter cross-connection lists/database join elements.

              • Optional Repeatable Group

                It would be handy if we could set a repeatable Group to Optional to clearly indicate that it does not need filling in (Like a Contact Form with Enquiry Groups)

                • Create a Fabrik "call" which would invoke a MySQL stored procedure that I could then assign to a Joomla Menu item.

                  I would love for Fabrik to have a feature which would call a stored procedure in MySQL - which I could then link to a menu item. Stored procedures would allow me to extend the capability considerably.

                  • Enable table joins across connections

                    Fabrik isn't able to use joins across different connections, only within the default (current site) connection.

                    I think this limitation comes from the manner how the db queries are proceeded. As we know, the syntax for fields is "SELECT tablename1.fieldname FROM tablename1 LEFT JOIN tablename2 ..." but joining across different databases means that the syntax should be "SELECT databasename1.tablename1.fieldname FROM databasename1.tablename1 LEFT JOIN databasename2.tablename2 ..."
                    One important part in joins is the alias names. For fields the aliases are tablename___elementname that we call element full names. This importance occurs especially when saving form data with joined groups. Fabrik should know…

                      • UX Group for fabrik

                        Fabrik is GREAT and very efficient but sometimes needs patience and efforts to get a result.

                        A UX Group could suggest improvments.

                        The pupose of UX is not to invent new technologies or functions but to find a better usability for existing tools, functions or interfaces.

                        I see so many people using badly designed data, forms or CCK systems when Fabrik is a rich, robust and versatile solution.

                        UX Fabrik could use a simple, by-task mockups repository and process user evaluation to give core-team an accurate vision on real needs (pull-requests for instance).

                        ;-)

                              SendInBlue is a very cost effective alternative to MailChimp for large numbers of email recipients and infrequent mailings using there pay as you go financials. There are no current integrations for Joomla. Could the MailChimp plugin be cloned to work with their APIS (see: https://apidocs.sendinblue.com/ )

                              • Ability to reset list ordering by users and in menu item option

                                Some of my elements to "allow ordering". I request that when I click the "Clear filters" button in my list that it would reset the "default" ordering that is set in my list options. It doesn't need to be the same button but that would be nice.

                                Also, please add this as an option in a menu item setting.

                                    It'd be neat to have an option to update a specified Google Calendar whenever events are added through a Fabrik calendar visualization.

                                    We have pretty much all the code we need in the GCal Sync scheduled task plugin.

                                    • A widget that can be placed on other websites (non joomla) displaying for instance the latest three coming events for a certain area

                                      i have a events list for an entire region, a widget displaying the latest three or so events for a town in that region would be nice. So i would give the widget to customer living in town A. So this customers website will display the latest three coming events from my fabrik list on my own website in their website for town A. And so for town B and C etc.

                                      • RTF File Export (Frontend)

                                        Similar to the PDF file creator, but would allow data from a single record to be exported (save to user's desktop via "Save As..." dialog) to an RTF file.

                                        • Add a Filter Module

                                          As an example I am using Fabrik to list agendas and minutes in PDF for each town office on a Town website. I would like to have a list for each board and committee in which each would have its own list module. I would put all these modules on the same page and would prefer to have a single list filter module that works on all modules for that particular page instead of using each module's own list filter.
