I have a table with many fields but only a few records. Horizontally scrolling to see all the fields when there’s a lot of empty vertical space feels weird.

Is there a way to flip the display of rows and columns so the screen space is used more efficiently for these kinds of tables?

To be clear - I’m not talking about pivoting the data. I just want to see rows vertically to make best use of the space.

I am looking for this function as well to easily update records quickly by pressing enter to get to the next field down…I have many questions to ask and I find the form option a bit slow and long in form. Please let me know if there is any way to do this. Thanks!

Yes, would like this feature as well. Not used to a horizontal view (Scrolling to the right for a very long time).

This is especially useful when you are trying to create comparisons between 2 or more things. For example if you are comparing features and pricing, it’s easier to see in a vertical (column) view.

Agreed. It would be very useful to be able to flip the rows and columns (in grid view).

Hi, how could I display a view were certain columns come to rows? I have a task template, where every task is displayed as a row, and I would like to have a view where I could order the information by a person assigned (which are currently displayed in columns among a lot of other data).

It would be so useful!! It’s a pity this need has been open since 2017.
Is something else I can do to have a view close to what I am looking for?
Thanks in advance

Dear all,

Maybe I am missing something - but where is the answer (to this post of +5 year old post) ?

Best regards.
