You’ve talked about looking at some hierarchy stuff right now to improve backlog handling, so I thought I’d also suggest this if it was interesting as it’s related:
I was wondering if you’d thought about a “One-by-One” or “Layout” view. This is a view where you can see the entities on the “left”, and click through each one getting a large view of each, while still seeing the list. “One-by-One” and “Layout” are what TargetProcess and Coda respectively call these views, which they both have.
I think you could also accomplish this with some manipulation of the navigation in your existing List view and larger “write” view of cards.
Hope that’s helpful and curious to get your thoughts!
