Tree diagram AWOL

I can’t see where the ability to create an entity tree in a whiteboard diagram has gone. Am I missing something?

Hi, Chris!
Yep, we’ve removed that possibility after implementing Hierarchical lists. We hope, they can work much better. As Entity tree on the Whiteboard is very unpolished for now and need a lot improvements.
For some day we will bring them back, but not in the nearest future :slight_smile:

Shame :frowning:
As I recall, the whiteboard diagram was able to represent links between entities of the same type when the relationship wasn’t 1-to-n, something which the hierarchical list can’t do.
Maybe I’m misremembering…

That sounds not very promising - I had hoped that some of the needs for whiteboards would be in the pipeline:

Should we stop hoping for these?

We definitely didn’t remove it forever.
To be clear - we have a feature to improve Tree View - with hierarchy filters, units on the card, and abilities to open them.
In the current status and Hierarchical lists ready - we don’t want to bring them back.
So - noted this topic and your interest :sparkling_heart:

Great commentary here and I am really counting on getting this stuff in Whiteboard. Unfortunately my use of Whiteboard is down to zero right now, as the promise of being able to build live diagrams around entities and their relations was a HUGE reason I came to Fibery over 1 1/2 years ago, and I’m really disappointed this seems completely de-prioritized right now.

Do you guys have any thoughts on this request:

Since you already built something that automatically create a graphic representation of relations between Types, would it be a huge build to do something similar within a Type? That would satisfy the need, partially at least, for an auto-generating diagram.

Thanks!

+1 for entity tree and the ability to build live diagrams in Whiteboard View.

+1 for diagram view for entity relations, was hoping to build org.chat with that, combining hierarchical and matrix structures…really hope you’ll bring it back in 2021
