Hi everyone 👋
The New Table view boosts your experience by new and enhanced functionality with improved loading times for large folders, introducing a side panel for easy navigation, and offering a fields menu for personalized views, just to name a few. It also supports mass actions for efficient item management and includes clickable links in text fields for enhanced usability and convenience.
With this, we're also changing from Aggregation to Automatic Calculations from Subitems, also known as Rollups in the Old Table view.
Aggregation and Rollup - What’s the Difference? 🤓
This feature in the Old Table view provided a quick summary of data but didn't write this data to the database, limiting its use for formulas, reports, and so on. Given these limitations, we're phasing out Aggregation in the New Table view.
Automatic Calculations from Subitems / Rollups 📌
We're amplifying the Automatic Calculations from Subitems feature, which you may remember as Rollup from the Old Table view. This feature auto-calculates (SUMs/AVGs) a field rolled up from sub-items and writes these calculations to the database for more robust functionality.
What’s Next? ⏭️
We're improving this new interface with features like Automatic Calculations for formula fields, and inclusion of system fields in these calculations, as well as introducing a Range-Based Calculation Feature. These enhancements aim to make your user experience even better.
During the change from Old to New Table view, all your Automatic Calculations from Subitems will be kept, but Aggregations won't. We've decided not to auto-convert Aggregations to Automatic Calculations to avoid any risk of data loss. This might mean you'll need to manually set up some Automatic Calculations in the New Table view, but we believe the improved functionality will make it worthwhile.
In short, when migrating from Old Table view to New Table view:
- All existing Rollups will persist
- All existing Aggregations will not because it may overwrite manual data. You may need to update your New Table view with the Rollups, either within key cells or broadly at the column-level.
We value your feedback, so please share your thoughts below.
