Card

Card view shows each record as a separate card. Cards are most useful when you want to combine an image with data. For example, a team directory or property listings.

 

In our property management app, card view lets our app users quickly see what each property looks like, and what it offers.

You can set how many cards you want to show per page, or allow the app users to change the page size. Screenshot_2022-01-18_at_12.33.30.png

Rows

Rows show each record in a separate row. Each row features an image and a large text field of your choice. This view is most useful if you have mostly short bits of information. For example, a list of players on a football team, with data like their position, date of birth, salary, and so on.

You can set how many rows you want to show per page, or allow the app users to change the page size.

Board

Kanban Board shows your data in columns organized by status. This view is most useful if you need to manage or visualize your workflow. For example, a todo list, or project management. You can drag and drop records between columns to update their status.

 

In our property management app, we use the kanban board to quickly see and change the status of the properties we're selling.

To set up the Kanban board, choose the "status" field. This field needs to be a dropdown type field. By default, all the dropdown options in the status field are columns. You can choose which status options to show from the dropdown.

Table

Table view shows your data in a table format. This view is most useful when you need to see and compare field values of different records. For example, a list of job prospects with their email and interview date and time. 

 

In our property management app, we could use the table view to see which properties are for sale, and which are for letting.

One Record Only

One record only shows the Detail layout for the user's record. This view is useful for showing users their profile, or as a home/welcome page for your app.

 

In our property management app, we use it to show our sales agents their profiles and properties they're attached to.

You can start in edit mode on your One record display. In the layout editor, click the ellipsis (...) and check 'start in edit mode' to automatically enter the page in edit mode.

Inbox

Inbox view shows all records in a sidebar while showing the Detail layout of a selected record. This allows you to see both the List layout and the Detail layout at once. Inbox view is most useful when you need to be able to browse records and see all details very quickly. 

 

In our property management app, we use the inbox view to show a list of clients to our sales team.
