Flexible layouts & multi-level grouping

Flexible Section Widths: Optimize Your Record & Blank Page Layouts

We're thrilled to announce our latest feature: Flexible Layouts for Record and Blank Pages! This update gives you the power to further customize your section widths, enabling you to create more efficient, visually appealing and flexible layouts.

Why Flexible Section Widths?

We understand that every user has unique layout preferences and requirements. By offering flexible section widths, we're providing you with the ability to optimize your page designs according to your specific needs, while keeping those pages smart and responsive. This new feature makes it easier to organize your data, present information more effectively, and improve the overall user experience.

How Does It Work?

Customizing section widths is a breeze with our intuitive interface. Here's how to get started:

- Navigate to your Record or Blank Page.

- Click on the section you want to resize.

- Choose your desired width from the options available: 25%, 50%, or 75%.

That's it! Your sections will now appear side-by-side according to the selected widths.

Real-World Applications

Flexible Section Widths can significantly enhance the user experience across various use cases. For example, HR or Recruiting teams can create side-by-side sections for employee profiles, displaying personal information alongside performance metrics. Project managers can optimize their project pages by placing task lists next to relevant resources or updates.

Multi-level Grouping for Tables: Organize Your Data Like Never Before

We're excited to announce the launch of a powerful new feature: Multi-level Grouping for Tables! This update allows you to group your table data by up to three fields or values, providing you with even more control and flexibility in organizing and analyzing your data.

Why Multi-level Grouping?

Our users have shared their needs for more advanced organization capabilities within tables, and we've been listening. With this update, you can now create sub-groups within your existing groups to better manage complex datasets and derive more insights from your internal tools.

How Does It Work?

It's simple! To group your table by multiple fields or values, just follow these steps:

- Click the "Display" button in your table settings.

- Select your first field or value to group by (e.g., Status).

- Click "Add a subgroup" to add up to two more fields or values (e.g., Assignee and Priority).

That's it! Your table will now display groups and sub-groups based on your selected criteria.

Real-World Applications

Multi-level Grouping can be a game-changer in various use cases. For instance, project managers can now view tasks grouped by status, then assignee, and priority, allowing them to quickly identify bottlenecks and high-priority tasks. Customer support teams can group tickets by status, agent, and priority, making it easier to manage and assign workloads effectively.

Give It a Try and as always, we love to hear your feedback
