I’m lovin’ Airtable, but, in grid view, I’m not thrilled with those little icons that appear beside very field name to indicate what type of field it is. Most are text fields, so it looks as if I have fields named “A First Name” and “A City”. I’d like a configuration switch to switch them off.
Agreed. The icons are poorly designed and applied, detracting from the user interface, rather than enhancing it.
Yes, please! I would love to turn these off on a per field basis.
Yes! I agree that they are detracting from the UI readability. I don’t care
about turning them off selectively, I’d like them all to disappear!
I concur, this would be a very useful feature and add value to the tool.
Just want to keep this active. Please let us toggle off the icons in the field type headers.
i was about to make a new topic, but i see it has already pointed out.
Since airtable is about data, and how to read them properly, in the current layout, is Distracting
one solution would be
This is definitely a hot spot item. I only need to know what type of field it is - when I design it! After that - moot point and distraction.
It would also be nice to have a smaller column title font! If the title is COST OF GOODS - and my data is $13.50 - you get wasted space and huge columns. That means that if you have a large grid for no good reason.
I hate to compare to other products - but Alpha lets you do this customization with ease.
OMG - I JUST saw that no one has addressed this topic for 2 YEARS! So is it resolved and this question removed from the forum ???
Any resolution? I noticed that there are no field type icons in the templates that are ‘advertised’.
No resolution. When you actually apply a template, the icons return. No way to remove. I hate that my field, “boat name” appears as “A boat name”.
