How do I hide table tabs?

I have several helper tables for linking and allowing users to choose from sets of pre-defined values. They do not need to be directly accessed and can confuse end users. I would like to find a way for them to be hidden. I found an old thread about this that is marked as solved, but as far as I can tell, it hasn’t been solved.

Some options that could work:

  1. Allow these tables to move to a separate Base that can be accessed from the Base the consultants interact with, meaning allow Bases to access data across other Bases in the workspace. This way I could group the tables into functional and boilerplate Bases.

  2. Access to a show/hide UX in the Base with the tables listed and a toggle switch for visibility. Off state would hide the tab.

  3. System or even a hack that allows for custom CSS. Unfortunately the tabs do not have ids, but I may still be able to hack something with nth child.

Are any of these available? Is there another solution? If not, can one be rolled out?

Thank you,
Neal

Welcome to the Community, Neal!

Terrific question but as far as I am aware, this cannot be done in any of the excellent ways you suggest. Links between bases aren’t supported (see here). I’d love to have this done right in the base – an option to toggle visibility of table tabs precisely as we can toggle visibility of fields in a view. I’d hate to have to find my old books on CSS and solve the problem that way, but I’d do it – especially if custom CSS also meant that I could tweak the LOOK of my bases. (You can do this sort of thing in the secure email service ProtonMail.)

:frowning:

My solution is to try to organize the tabs. I do something similar to organize views – i.e. I create empty views and give them names that make them useful as separators.
