    1) Fix the form tablename generation to have a frm_ prefix...In a year, with a ton of forms, the DB structure is going to be a disaster if they aren't sorted like the sf_ tables

    2) Can you also have it store\show the language the form was completed in?

    Hi Steve,

    Request 1 will be very helpful indeed. We logged it to our our Feature Request system (#100187) and will include it in one of the first releases after the official release.

    Request 2 was also logged (#100188). This implementation will most probably go in Q2 of 2011.

    Thanks for the valuable suggestions!

    Kind regards,
    Kalina

    For the life of me I can't remember if the RC forms had ANY prefix, but I don't think they did...?

    I made a contact form, but in my DB now it's there as "sf_contactform"...so it's sorted right in the middle of all the other sitefinity system tables...could you either change sf_X to frm_X, or at least sf_frm_X ?

    Hi Steve,

    Currently you can set the default prefix for forms in Administration->Settings->Advanced
    Then in the settins tree:
    ContentView->Controls->Forms Backend->Views->FormsBackendInsert->Sections->MainSection->Fields->Name - see the PrefixText property. We'll place this setting at a higher level and it will be easier to access (Forms->FormsTablePrefix).

    Regarding the language - it will be included in the next weekly developer's build


    Kind regards,

    Bah, no need to move it up in the tree :)

    As long as it's somewhere (although a search function would be nice)

    *EDIT*
    You know what would be nice though...even if searching isnt there...just sort the items in that node, they're all out of order.

    I JUST ran into this problem yet again

    Could we not just set the default from "sf_" to something better like "sf_forms_frm_"

    Id like you to please find me a person who wants their forms tables placed randomly allover the place in the schema :)  It's madness (sparta)

    Theres no logical reason to keep it the way it is.
