Export Manager 2.0.3 - Can't add a new Export Type
#1
Bug 
Hello,

I am trying to add a new Export Type, but when I click on "Add Export Type", I'm forwarded to Add Export Group page.
Could you please, check it out?

Thank you,
Lina

Ack! I'll give it a look over. Q: did you upgrade to this version or install it anew?

Yesterday I installed FT 2.1 and Export manager 2.0.3 is a part of it. I was FT 2.04 user Sad before.
Another problem: I added my own Export group and I can't make it visible. I clicked show and hide, show and hide - nothing.

Thank you,
Lina

Hi Lina,

I just released an update to the Export Manager module (2.0.4) that includes a fix for the Add Export Type button not working properly, but I couldn't reproduce the problem you're encountering with the Hide/Show not saving.

Maybe try updating your module version, creating a new Export Type through it and see if the update works. If not, let me know what OS + browser you're using and I'll take another look!

Besides this problem, how are you finding 2.1?

Hi Ben!

I can add a new Export Group and a new Export Type in it, but Export Group is not visible at Forms>Submissions page. I try to add another Type in one of default Expert Group and everything works fine.

About visibility of Export Groups:
Maybe the problem is in function exp_display_export_options($template_name, $params) in export_manager/global/code/general.php file.
I AM logged as admin, but I have to set permission to "public" to be able to view Export group. The same thing with default Export groups.


I'm testing it on my local server. OS is win7 and I tried to make it work in FF and IE.

I like FT 2.1. It's easier to navigate and input form fields. My favorite is drag and drop sorting. Smile It's so much easier!

Ben, I REALLY appreciate your hard work!

Thank you,
Lina

Ack, you're totally right. Plus it's a little strange that the visibility setting and the permissions both affect the same thing - whether it's visible or not. Hmm. I'll just release an update that shows the access type (admin / public / private) on the main page as well as visibility. (Plus the fix for the "admin" permissions not showing up that you mentioned!)

[And agreed about the drag & drop... man, editing View fields was such a pain before!]

Done! You can download 2.0.5 now.

Great Ben! Everything works fine now :-)
What I need now (sorry!) is possibility to add another custom date format (d.m.Y. H:i). How can I do that? I found function function ft_display_field_type_date but what else should I add/change? How to add my own date format in dropdown list (on field editing popup)? Jquery file?

Thank you VERY much!

Yeesh, now we're getting into deep waters!

Adding in new date formats is totally possible, but you really need the Custom Fields module - which I haven't released yet (plus it's going to be a premium module, sorry. Sad ).

That module lets you customize all that info. Without it, you'll need to extract the actual values in the Date field's entry in the ft_field_types table, which would be error prone and difficult. Sorry...

What format were you looking to add?

I know it's complicated. Sad Format d. m. Y. H:i or d. m. Y. is common format in Europe, so it would be nice to have it as option.

Another problem (maybe):
When you add a new form and delete any of fields later, the field is not visible in administration but it's not deleted from database. I had this problem with internal form and internal form changed to external. Maybe you could check it out.

Thank you soooo much Smile,
Lina
