I have so many items in my apps that need to be sorted in a variety of views. If there was a button to allow the users to enter a sorting mode, they could then drag and drop the items into the correct order. Perhaps this could also be done with just a long press on the items. Once the sorting mode was entered, Glide would make a column in the backend that would assign all items a sorting number. As the user dragged these items into the correct position glide would take care of reassigning these numbers to the specific items.
I agree. To start, Glide should allow us to have multiple sort conditions for inline lists…eg. ”first sort by category, then sort by name ascending”
mmm, user customisable dashboards…
This is something I’ve been giving some thought lately. I think it is possible to create some level of customisation through the use of user preferences to control tab/component visibility and perhaps list sort order. But allowing users to arrange components on a screen would be very slick
Yes . The simple thing to click on arrows top down as in our mailbox columns whatever the platform (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) to activate sorting from the selected column.
This is a really needed feature IMO. Airtable allows you to drag and sort.
Imagine the simplest task list and the user wants to sort in order of priority and work their way down the list. It’s easiest to sort this way. I use Todoist and completely bypass the need to use work arounds like having to add a flag or priority number to an item by just dragging.
grocery shopping, to drag and sort to a different grouping of items. Again Airtable allows this. The category would be Dairy, Meat, Baking etc. It’s fastest to just drag items into a different group in a list.
I love airtable for this feature but it’s so limited as an app builder if Glide had this it would be awesome.
There is a KanBan style list in Pages if you haven’t explored that yet.
I saw that! Hoping that functionality gets carried over to more than just pages.
