Feature Friday: Scrolling Horizontally, Generating Files & Embedding Maps

 

Horizontal Scrolling Tables

Depending on your device screen size and number of columns you intend to display, your app Table Views may overflow off the right end of your view. To make sure your users can quickly reference data from larger tables (or on smaller devices), you can now scroll the table horizontally with a mouse or touchscreen. 

Horizontal Scrolling Tables Browser

To enable Horizontal Scrolling Tables, visit UX > Options > Table View. We recommend also enabling 'Column Headers' at the same time to more easily recognize the data from each column as you scroll. Screen Shot 2019-01-18 at 10.03.59 AM

 

Automatically Generating & Saving Files

Save File Type

In addition to initiating notifications and PDF delivery from Workflows & Reports, app creators can now automatically schedule, generate & save new PDF, CSV, XML or JSON files from app data. These newly created files will be saved to your primary data source.

Using filtered triggers (like new or updated data) or scheduled delivery at specific days/times, custom formatted files can be created and saved in the app data source. This makes storing and accessing historical analytics, reports, or data backups much easier than searching email inboxes. 

To schedule or trigger new file creation, create a new Workflow or Report, and set your Action as 'Save File'.

Save File WorkflowEmbedded PDF Maps

When creating workflows to generate custom emails, PDFs or other documents that include location values from your app, you can choose between including the text value (address / latlong) or a static, embedded map showing the location.

By default, columns/expressions of type LatLong are shown as static maps with a pin, while columns/expressions of type Address are shown as text.

By specifying a Format Rule (in the UX > Format Rules section of the app editor) app creators can control the size of static maps in workflow email content. In the format rule, choose the table, one or more columns, an optional condition, and the image size (Tiny, Small, Medium, Large, or Text).
