You’re probably very familiar with some kind of list view in your applications. Usually that’s all a list-view is — a list, with very little ability to customize views or workflows. This limits you ability to interact with the data in an efficient way. You spend more time scrolling and looking for what you need than actually accomplishing what you set out to do. The Skuid Table is the answer to these problems.
The Skuid Table allows you to organize whatever data you like in spreadsheet form — and customize how that data is laid out. Pick from multiple data models and select the fields that are relevant to your page, then place them in any number of columns, in any order in your table. Setting conditions means you can pull only the data that’s relevant to you. Layout features like sticky headers and scroll bars allow you to customize your view of the data to your heart’s content.
You can see even more information on a specific record by adding pop-ups or drawers.
Tables can be set up to hook into charts and maps on the same page. When you update the data in the table, the charts update instantly. You can also set the filters on your table to filter the charts. So when you find the records you need, you see them in the table and you get insight into how they fit into the big picture. You don’t have to run reports or refresh the page—it all renders right before your eyes.
The Skuid Table makes working with your data simple and intuitive while allowing you to accomplish incredibly complex functions. It’s just one of many powerful components Skuid offers.
Psst... there’s more. Yes, the Skuid Table has even more features. Rather than go into every single feature and capability here, head over to our tutorial on how to build the table to get all the juicy details.
