There are many feature requests for the Galley View and I hate to pile on, but my request might help some of the others. I wish we could “turn over” Gallery and Kanban cards to reveal other fields. This would be a useful UI improvement to:
- enable the creation of flash cards (Flash card view)
- potentially provide data visualizations, enabling Gallery views to serve as simple dashboards (Ability to create graphs, charts, maps from data in Airtable database)
- create more visually appealing staff directories or contact lists
I’d like this feature because I’m creating dashboards in Wordpress by embedding single-card gallery views. It would be awesome to have a single field in really large type (or image) that fills up most of the card-face real estate. As an example, if I am tracking unpaid invoices, I might use the days outstanding metric which would show “47” in large type. If I am tracking my weekly running distance, it might show % of goal in large type.
If you remember the wonderful but short-lived Numerous app (here’s a screen shot), you would see what I mean. Wonderful utility…
My own use case might be idiosyncratic, but the underlying concept of a two-sided card is powerful (and one might ask, why stop at two sides – why not go even more multi-dimensional?)
Thanks for considering!
