Layouts

There exists 2 layouts that can be used to view your data: table and list layouts. The default layout is table layout, but list layout is a good choice if you prefer a more minimalistic interface for viewing your data.

Join tables

If the base table used on the view has foreign key columns, then it’s possible to join the base table with other tables that correspond to the foreign key columns.

Show/hide attributes

Every attribute (i.e. table column) can either be visible or hidden. You can also specify a different set of attributes from one layout to another in order to be able to show different attributes for different view layouts.

Favorites

It’s also possible to favorite views that you frequently use in order to easily find them. Click on the star to favorite a view.

Favorites are also automatically added to your homepage allowing you to easily access them without having to navigate around the rest of the app.

Draft vs published views

When you first create a view, it will be set as a draft and will transition to published once you hit the publish button. Views are initially set to being drafts since it allows users to take their time setting up a view without worrying about having their teammates interpret the view as being ready to use.

Draft and published views are sorted separately in the sidebar, with favorites sorted first.

Slack notifications

You are able to enable slack notifications on a view. When enabling slack notifications, you must specify a “created at” date column that is used to determine if new records have been created on the view. You can select the frequency at which slack notifications appear (daily, hourly, real-time).
