So as it is known, no direct method of creating reports. And before the community replies with suggestions of the Page Designer block, let me clarify that I am talking about MULTIPLE records per printable page to be shown in a report. What I want and what a majority of users want is something that is really quite simple but for some reason, hasn’t been implemented yet.
What I would like to see is a report builder feature where it is an exact copy of a selected table in a base. Within this report builder, I may sort, filter, and hide columns to my choosing. Obviously, this may be done in the base itself. But let’s get real, that’s not sustainable. I want a one-click page to show me information sorted as I want without having to re-input all my filters. The report builder feature would allow what is basically a custom view into a printable report that can be customized for viewing ease.
Even better, is if that report was able to be viewed in a web page like the form is. That way, the user could save that report as a shortcut to his/her computer station to open as they need without having to re-open Airtable. Or that on the dashboard, a “my reports” option would be available. This would allow for a great time savings in finding information one needs in everyday business operations.
I don’t mean to come across as harsh, but this is a huge drawback and even a flaw in the Airtable system. This exact feature could be the turning point of many customers.
