Row grouping and total row in table view

Is this row grouping already part of Grid view? I thought it would be released together with grid view.

Also @Chr1sG I cannot find the circular arrow button in list view


‘Row grouping’ in the case of grid view means choosing a db to be used for grouping as the top level, and then choosing the next level for the items to be grouped.
In your image, the Todos will be ‘grouped by Project’

The circular arrow will be present (for the top level db only) if there is a suitable (i.e. one-to-many) self-relation.

The self-relation doesn’t make sense for us. I understand that this might work if you have sub tasks for instance.

In our case we want groupings per field. For instance a field “priority”. Each priority would be a group, and within that would be the tasks of that priority. Will this be possible?

But lets say level based is fine for us (in the case of projects and tasks), the new grid view is still not grouped. Yes it’s nested similar to list view, but not grouped visually the same way as the screenshot from topic starter. So I’m not too sure how grid view is an improvement in this sense. It’s basically a compacter version of tables with levels integrated similar to a list view.

Sorry, what doesn’t make sense?
If you have a (one-to-many) self-relation for the top level db, then you can show items from the same db nested under each other, by clicking the circular arrow.
Or did you mean that it’s not something you would utilise?

Grouping by a field value is not currently possible, no. Sorry.
Maybe my previous reply was misleading - we haven’t yet implemented this feature (in Table view or Grid view).
Grid view is still under development, so it is likely that improvements will come (including the features mentioned in this topic, at some point) but we thought it was worth releasing it as an experimental feature in the meantime.

What are the elements/functions that are visible/available in the screenshot from the first post that you think are missing? I mean, there are obviously some stylistic differences, but there is a lot in common:

  • a group can be expanded collapsed
  • the fields for items in a group are aligned in columns
  • there is the ability to add new items to a group
