New view: canvas


#1

Hi,

I love your mission statement on https://airtable.com/about.

Airtable was founded on the belief that software shouldn’t dictate how you work—you should dictate how it works.

This is exactly how tools that I love behave!
In the spirit of that statement: how about a canvas view?

  • Big empty space for me to do whatever I want with
  • Each row is represented as a post it with a single field as description (that I get to choose like the stacking field in the Kanban-view)
  • I can upload a background picture (with columns) or draw things (lines, text etc) directly on the canvas
  • [I have many other ideas that would be for the more advanced scenarios - let me know if you want to know more]

Now I can truly create a view that supports just my needs and change it as needed.

Just an idea but I think that would be both easy and awesome. Never seen it in any product

All the best - awesome tool!

This is a cool idea.

I wish this would get actioned: Plugins, and expanding the role of third-party developers

Would make things like this so much more likely to appear.
