Current Situation: At present, fields of parent entity relations (whether one-to-one or many-to-one) are restricted to display either in the right sidebar or as pinned fields in the entity display.
Proposed Enhancement: For a more intuitive and user-friendly experience, I’d like the flexibility to position any field, irrespective of its relation type (one-to-many or many-to-many), centrally within the entity display. This would allow users to view important fields in a more meaningful sequence and at a glance.
My understanding is that where a DB’s fields appear in entity view is strictly a function of whether they are collections or not, and is unrelated to whether the data comes from a different entity.
- All “collection” type fields, whether they are a Lookup or a Formula or an “ordinary” relation, always appear in the left side.
- All non-“collection” type fields appear in the right side, and are optionally pinnable at the top.
“Collections” are Relations, Lookups, or Formulas that can have multiple entities as their result.
So a relation field that is One-to-*, or a Lookup of the same, or a Formula field resulting in max one entity, will all appear in the right panel and be pinnable at the top.
