The view designer is now generally available! The team will be using this post to actively monitor feedback in the next few days and weeks. Please submit your feedback on the view designer and have your voice heard.
1. I still need to be able to change the dispaly name of a field from within the view designer
2. How about Excel or SharePoint-like conditional formatting?
3. I suggest add the feature of column width of = maximum available which I could set for one column only
4. I suggest add Group by feature to any column
Apart from this, I have the following on the Model-Driven apps designer: -
I need to be able to add an entity instance more than once, while each instance has its own views, and has its own form!!!
For example: I have a custom entity I call ACCOUNT, in which there are accounts with Types = CUSTOMER, SUPPLIER, BANK, FORWARDER, GOVERNMENTAL, INSURANCE, etc
I know I can add views in the Entity instance, such as
Active Customers in Jordan
Active Customers outside Jordan
Suppliers - with agency agreement
Suppliers - with gentleman agreement
Suppliers - to verify
Imagine, long list and i can assure you it can be 50 views, it works but its annoying.
And worst is that the Form I need for Supplier is different from the form of a Customer, different from the bank, different from the insutance etc
I know can design a long (BIG) form with complicated rules to show/hide fields based on Account Type, and it works, but it does not work show/hide tabs without coding, and I am an average user, which model driven is meant to be for, so now what?
Imagine every Entity instance has its own default form: magic!!
I hope i am heard..
Why is the view designer at make.powerapps.com solution experience different than the one in app designer? There are some really nice features of the one in app designer that I love, such as the ability to change the layout and filter from the same screen (new view designer pops up a new screen for filter and the ability to specify sort columns by clicking on the header column of the view.
Thanks @jlindstrom. Eventually this will be the view designer used from the app designer. The new view designer lets you update filter conditions inline.
Sort conditions can also be quickly applied via the property pane.
Please let me know if I am not understanding your ask correctly.
We have lots of customers complaining about the new views - as Microsoft have removed basic functionality that was very helpful for filtering.
When filtering on a LookUp - you MUST spell the name perfectly rather than selecting from the active records of that lookup. If I want to filter records where a column has NO data there is no possible way to do this.
I hope they bring this back as it's a real oversight for Views.
Hi @Scooter ,
You are able to start typing into the lookup filter text field to see the list of values to pick from.
If this isn't what you are mentioning, could you please take a screenshot/video and attach to this thread?
