Cango Caves Update: Adding More Functionality ‘Under The Hood’

We’re thrilled to announce the latest update, Cango Caves, named after the popular tourist destination in South Africa. Most of the changes in this release are under the hood, but we’ve also added some highly requested features. The team is working hard to ensure our customers can create even better user experiences.

New Features And Improvements

Nested Repeats For More Comprehensive Data 

Nested Repeats will soon be a reality on the Appenate platform. This feature will let you add a Table field within a Table field (Tableception!) or a Table field within a repeatable page. 

You’ll be able to capture even more complex data sets and export them to SQL, SharePoint, and other flat file-based Connectors. Custom output can also be in .docx, .xlsx, and .PDF formats.

As one example, a building inspector can use Nested Repeats to capture information about the rooms within a building and items within those rooms that require inspection. And once you’ve submitted your Form, the form data can be communicated via email in your own custom output format.

Powerful New PostgreSQL Connector 

To compliment our MS SQL Connector, we’re adding PostgreSQL Form and Data Source Connectors to our suite, enabling your solution to interact with a PostgreSQL database.

PostgreSQL is an open-source relational database management system. It supports a wide range of data types and has a reputation for being scalable and reliable. By adding this Connector, you can securely push and pull data from your PostgreSQL database.

We’re Also Adding A MySQL Connector

While we’re adding database Connectors, it makes sense to add a MySQL Connector as well. MySQL is another open-source relational database management system known for being fast, reliable, and widely used. 

Integrating a MySQL Connector can enhance your app’s functionality and make it even more powerful and efficient, allowing you to push and pull information from your database. 

More Inclusive Email-less Login (For Customers Using Ping Identity)

We’re focusing on cases where customers don’t have an email address and need to use Ping Identity to log in and authenticate the app. With this improvement, you can now use Ping Identity without an email address, providing a more streamlined login experience for your users.

Include A List Of Values In The App Launch Rules.

Our App Links feature allows you to create custom links that can be sent to your users via email or text or used within other software to launch a Form within our app.

This update will enable you to send a pipe-separated list of values as a parameter via query string in the App Launch rules. This means you can pass even more information to the Form.

We’re excited to bring these improvements to you, and we can’t wait to see how you’ll use them to create even better experiences for your users.
