It would be nice to be able to configure what fields/information about a child entity to show in the parent’s collection. Examples of extra things that might be nice to show would be labels or state.
Of course this could be taken to the next level by being able to embed mini-boards with vertical/horiz swim lanes too.
A table view showing aggregate totals on some numeric fields will be good!
Wanted to add the big +1, a recurring theme I’ve been posting about across the community! You guys are off to a great start so far, but if this could morph into a sort of Excel/Sheets type table, where you could yourself set column width, also add some more fields which are currently unavailable like “rich text” and “collections” if there is a many-to-many relationship between Types. We really use this a lot to get more context out of related entities, in particular seeing what related entities are related to the relations, since you can show that info, too!
I also wanted to add that it would be great to get some visibility into Comments in the “Connections” area.
This would have great benefit in a CRM use case:
If the primary Entity is the Company in question, and your “Connections” area has the activity, you might operate like this:
Each Activity has a conclusion, and the user writes comments after completing about what that was
If you could see the comments easily in a list format in the “Connections” area, you can see at a glance all the notes about the activity with the company.
Without this, you are forced to write comments both in the Activity Entity, which is natural when it is completed, and then also in the Company Entity’s comments, if you want to be able to look at the Company Entity and see the relevant notes.
If you could see the Activity Entity’s comments, you wouldn’t have to enter that information also in the Company’s Entity.
ClickUp has an interesting implementation of Comments in List view. You can both see the most recent comment, and see a comment count. In the comment count column, you can click and add in a new comment inline, very useful.
