How do you visualize your tables?

As my Glide App grows, I find a need to visualize all the intricacies of calculated and related columns. I know that there are solutions for SQL databases that can graph it automatically but I’m not sure if it’s possible for Glide tables (guessing not?).

I’ve tried using and it’s a decent solution, but at some point becomes a bit unwieldy (I’m also not using it right, but oh, well, call the police :rofl:)

Curious if anyone knows of other solutions. Extra points for something that’s free =) Thank you!

I MUST be able to see my app. I use Excel.



Of course!!! :star_struck:

Do you use any kind of automation or just manually update it?

Manually. This was created after I had been working on my first app because I was going crazy trying to keep up. Now I attempt to build this first and it makes all of the difference as I think through my logic of glide’s relations, lookups, computations, etc.


Yes, Database Architect is a profession for a reason =) These relations get unwieldy really quickly, and your experience sounds exactly like what I’m going through. Granted, I was just learning the tool, but it’s time to clean this mess up!

Thank you for the advice =) Will try that!


Try with I haven’t used it since long time ago but it had some interesting things.

Don’t fell bad about your “little mess”, the database’s relationships diagrams aren’t nice and friendly most cases, I have seen some ones on MS SQL Server very crazy :exploding_head: and complex.

Have a nice night


Heh, well, less worried about the mess by itself, but rather about the fact that I can’t tell what’s related to what, which is kind of the whole point of the diagram :rofl: :woman_facepalming:

Thank you, I’ll check it out!

Thinking carefully about how you name columns, and taking full advantage of Column Grouping can both help with that :slight_smile:

Doing both =)
I can tell what’s related to what looking at my tables, but not when I’m looking at that automatic diagram =) Sorry, I’m very picky about my visualizations =)
