On the iOS app there’s a yellow plus sign at the bottom of the table view that allows you to easily add a new record to the table despite not being scrolled to the bottom of the table.
I would like to be able to add a new record on the desktop version without having to scroll down to the bottom of a (sometimes very large) table. I have a people / contacts table with ~1600 records and in order to add a new record, I currently have to scroll to the very bottom.
Filters could help this issue by filtering records so that only a subset of the table’s records are shown which would make the table appear smaller, but I’ve run into another issue when I add a new record to a filtered table: usually the new record is filtered immediately because the filter is based on the record containing a certain value, which the new record doesn’t have. Being able to have columns populate a default value on new records would really help this situation.
But I’d love to be able to add a new record with a button at the top of the table which would add a new record and take me directly to that new record in the interface.
