To avoid polluting my workspace or having to deal with a test workspace (i.e. laziness), can you clarify whether the Notion import also correctly handles database entries with Markdown page contents? Notion has both hierarchical pages (which I assume is what is new and correctly handled in this update) and page contents of databases. The latter was not supported in Fibery, and I’m hoping it too now works with this update. If not, then soon?
In this release, we focused on improving markdown import, including better support of the Notion markdown export. We specifically worked on the hierarchical structure and removed the notion_id during the import. Since the page content of the database entry is part of the Notion export as a markdown file, the import works smoothly. However, it does not mean that the Notion export will build up the database and the documents. This will be a separate feature, but unfortunately, we don’t have an ETA for that yet.
Next, we’ll tackle the CSV import to merge v1 and v2.
Nice update! I would love the ability to set an icon from a formula. Any chance there are plans for this?
For example, being able to automatically change your task’s icon based on the state would be a huge aid in visualizing what is attached.
And like @Matt_Blais said above, being able to do the same for the background color of your relation links. Allowing both icons/link color to be formula driven would help make Fibery a lot more intuitive
And you are right, very much a step towards eliminating the need for Slack when you communicate in Fibery. My team already did this and now we can actually find stuff we wrote in comments, great stuff! Wasn’t even holding out hope for getting this anytime soon, thanks so much for prioritizing this!
I really love the option to add emoji icons for entities. What would make it even better if we could set a default icon for new entities in a database.
Certain entities in our workspace are given fixed icons to create a visual distinction between different types of data. For example: Template entities gets this icon
As new entities are gradually added (both by us and by the user) it is nice when we don’t have to set which icon we want per entity, but that at database level a certain default can be set when a new entity is created.
Is this something you think would be possible in the near future?
Yep, should be fine by now. Please ping us via Intercom if comments are still not being indexed.
Note that inline rich-text comments are not indexed yet, only the ones added via the Comments extension.
@antoniokov Is it possible for icons to be inherited from a relation?
I was able to create a lookup field that looks up the icon from a relation. However, it doesn’t seem to affect the entity icon itself. This would be quite a helpful tweak by allowing users to define the icons by types and have them propagate through.
Thanks for the clarification. It would be nice if there was a way of entities “inheriting” icons (possibly other types of special fields) from another type/database. I particularly like icons because they replace the database type indicator with something more useful without taking more space.
