Right, but I meant in the case where I want a calendar view to show a field on an item, if that field is not empty. If the field is empty, then I’d love for the field to show nothing, instead of “(empty)”.
Thanks for these updates and collecting feedback, this is the best!
I have a Calendar view in my gardening base where I’ve configured rolling planting/flowering seasons for plants. In testing these cover image/label options, my main feedback is I have no way to remove an annoying https:/dl.airtable link that appears when I enable photos.
And when I click on any calendar entry with a photo (via my base view, not an interface), I don’t see the image in the card;
Would it be possible to have the Calendar team review and hopefully add granular controls to hide image link and show the image in the card?
Would be keen on hearing if they’ve had any further thoughts to adding rolling date functionality to Airtable too. I have god-only-knows what formula, work-around columns, duplicating entry workarounds happening just so that I can see repeating dates (such as flowering season).
You’re likely seeing the URL alongside your image because the attachment field is still toggled on under “Customize labels”. If you toggle the field label off, it will stop showing as text and the image will remain.
As for what shows in the expanded view, we’ll definitely think more about this but in the meantime you can click “Expand record” to get to the full view with all fields.
Overall, these calendar changes are a wonderful & significant improvement, although there is still some room for improvement:
I would really love to see text wrapping of event titles onto multiple lines, so that we can see the full title of an event at-a-glance.
When viewing the list of records with dates in the right margin of the calendar view, it would be really nice if we could click on a record’s date and be taken to that particular date on the calendar. Currently, we have to manually scroll through the calendar to go to a specific date.
On that note, it would be nice to be able to jump to any date that we want on the calendar without scrolling.
Most countries’ calendar weeks start on Monday instead of Sunday. It would be nice to have this option. In fact, 80% of the countries around the world start their weeks on Monday or Tuesday instead of Sunday. The USA is one of the few countries that starts their weeks on Sundays.
It would be great if this bug was fixed:
As mentioned above by others, it is not necessary to display the word (empty) if a field is left blank.
URLs should not display for attachments if those URLs won’t work in November. Although maybe these URLs will continue to work for collaborators, in which case this is fine.
As mentioned above in other posts, improvements can be made to the first “expanded view” that you get taken to when clicking on an event.
But overall, these are relatively minor issues, and the new changes to the calendar view are absolutely fantastic!
We’re almost at a 100% perfect calendar view now, and I am super grateful for that!
After testing this end I realise now hiding fields in the card also hides the labels on the calendar view, which is definitely not ideal for us. The two need to work independently please, or you end up with nothing on the card view but hidden fields.
If the span.labelWithSeparator elements remove the white-space: nowrap; property, and make some adjustments to the when/where .truncate-block-#-lines classes get applied, then the Calendar views can achieve wrapping labels while keeping the event duration in view
