Hello everyone, I’m designing the content layout for my team and I want to group relevant data items under common names like what we can do with “Grouping” button in Excel.
For example, I have these data points:

  • Overview: Company Name, Country, Status, Sector, Sub-sector, Stage (I want to group these four data points under the “Overview”)
    Untitled
    I also want to collapse/expand the view (with the “+” button as shown in the image)

Thanks a lot for your help!

This is not possible in Airtable as of now. however, you can have separate views having your choice of columns. For example, in Overview View, you can show only those columns which comes under this part. I hope this helps. Thanks

Agree this can be resolved in some cases using custom views, but I can still imagine many workflows where distinct groups of columns would help users think more clearly about different kinds of information being presented, especially in a complex base. This functionality could also carry through to the expanded record view and forms, where it could be incredibly helpful to group related fields and let the user expand or collapse those groups to aid comprehension, data entry, etc.
