Airtable’s new “timeline” view
After a full five years using their product for all manner of databasing projects, I’m thrilled to see the addition of a new View to complement the fairly recent Gantt and Mobile Kanban that have made life so much easier.
With such a powerful back-end it’s all-important to have an intuitive, flexible front-end that invites users in to be able to visualise their data in the most business-friendly ways. Enter Timeline, which allows you to stack items vertically by means of any (manual or calculated) Date-type field, and colour/shade them by and SingleSelect-type field. It fills the gap that’d been yawning between Gantt and Calendar views. Congrats to the Airtable devs for launching this so seamlessly and successfully last week.
