I come up against this so frequently - I can’t believe there isn’t a work around!
I want to show more columns/fields in a table view (or list view or any view for that matter) - on the front end - not the back end tables.
I have tried -
- Data Grid - but as well documented, that doesn’t allow row actions - so users cannot click on a row and be taken to a detail page
- Concatenating 2 or more text fields into a single field so that I can get more data in
- I also regularly use number emojis, such as to Concactenate onto a text field to show the number of comments (for example)
Any tips / suggestions?
PS - I have also tried adding a URL / Link to a field in Data Grid, but failed miserably
I think you can try using template columns to fit more data in one field (which you seem to have tried) or building your custom collection.
Ahh thanks Nathanael
I’d actually forgotten about using a custom collection (I use loads of template columns currently!).
That still only gives me 3 columns, but it does give me more fields in more rows - so will give that a try. From memory - it’s not a very compact view is it though? I have a lot of data to show.
Thanks again, Much appreciated
One option is a HTML table inside a Rich Text component within a Custom Collection.
Able to share example please. TQ
That’s a good thought - so I am guessing -
Pop the table HTML code in a template column and replace the values in there.
Then pop the template field into a custom collection?
Is that about right?
Yes, that’s correct. Use it in a Rich Text component inside a Custom Collection.
I think @Jeff_Hager uses this method. He might have an example that can be shared.
Yeah, I use this method in various ways.
This example is more about the look of the collect than it was about information density. Here is how I have a template column set up.
Then I use that template column in a single rich text component in a custom collection to get this result. There’s a lot going on, but there is an HTML table in there.
Fabulous! Thank you both.
Really appreciate how much help you offer in this forum - I wonder whether you ever sleep sometimes!
It helps more than you can imagine.
