  4. To add "User's access level" to "User data" of "User plugin" for elements. It helps to show this status of user for others, very useful

    For some tasks it is important possibility for users to know status each other based on name of access level (just registered or some kind of it, or author etc), especially if you have or plan to develop structure of these levels for needs of your project

  5. 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.

  8. prefix and other operations on db tables

    The idea is to declare the name of project you are working so when you create lists you will have an automatic prefix "myproject_" on tables.

    Also an option to delete db tables created by mistake when you delete a list

    Also the option to rename the table associated with a list

    Thanks!

  10. 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.

  12. 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)

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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).

    ;-)

  19. SendInBlue Plugin

    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/ )

  20. 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.
