Swap x and y axis for rows and columns

It would be faster to edit and add data to the tables/spreadsheets if users could temporarily swap the x-axis with the y-axis and scroll through the various fields to enter. The properties of each record would flow from top to bottom for easier mouse scrolling, but then you could put it back to the default display type when you’re done modifying a record or creating a new one.

thats what expanded records are for

@Brian_Schuster To expand on what @Rebecca_Elam said, tap the space bar when any field has focus, and you’ll get an expanded view of that record, with all fields arranged top-to-bottom in a scrollable column.

Thank you both for the suggestions.

I might be posting about an API issue soon. Do either of you deal with HTTP requests much?

I don’t, but there are plenty of folks here who do. My strengths tend to be formulas, JavaScript (scripting app & automations), and base design.
