Some of the AirTable universe bases that I see as examples/templates have cover pages as well as left-hand navigation for the different views (as opposed to seeing it via a dropdown). I was wondering if it’s possible to have your internal base have a look and feel similar to that. I can imagine that this would be very useful for collaboration, especially in cases I want to share bases that will be used by different groups of people who are unaware that the drop-down is the way to find the different views. Anyone manage to solve this problem?
+1 this would be useful for demonstrations and onboarding
I’m surprised Airtable hasn’t responded to this yet. There are many tools very similar to Airtable’s core design, (fusioo, zoho, etc) that have this feature but I use Airtable because it doesn’t force a lot of the unneeded features. But if they want to stay competitive, they really need to release this feature. I will replace my entire CRM with Airtable if they allow this. I have many tables in one base because I use them to create sections in my primary table’s full record view, and this would allow me to have easier access to the primary tables I use, especially when mobile. Is this feature on the table, AirTable?
Browsing through the “universe” section I noticed that all of the examples are displayed with the different tables and views on the left hand side of the screen (see attached screen shot). Is it possible to acquire this view for my bases?
The lack of responses here, along with the fact that Airtable continues to fill the “Universe” with thousands of samples that don’t actually exist for end users, and when downloaded don’t work like the examples shown, is one of the most bizarre management decisions I’ve ever seen.
Otherwise still an amazing incredible product :grinning: !
It doesn’t look like Airtable is very active in their own forums? I haven’t seen an airtable response to any thing I’ve looked up and this is one thing I keep coming back to hoping they’ll have an update and away to display the views like the universe.
We built our own view like this in React by creating embed links for all of the views we wanted to have in our sidebar, then have the clicking of the links populate the URL in an iframe.
+1 for the Sidebar navigation integrated into Airtable. I have a couple of bases with 50+ tables and the tabbed view is a little cumbersome.
Push! Would love the sidebar as well. Having problems getting my team on board with using our Airtable because it is confusing for them to have the combination of tabs and dropdown. The Universe-UX is so much easier! Please Airtable-team!!!
The left side tab described as “Universe” would be huge for my org as well. How can I enable it?
