Here’s a simple request. Please display these numbers
in the “column order” section of the view editor like this:
Reason: Virtual columns in tables are displayed in the order they were made. This order may, of course, be different from the order in which the results are displayed in a given view. However, because AppSheet doesn’t provide us with a search function, it can really be hard to find the column that needs editing if you have a lot of virtual columns.
By the way, here’s how columns can multiply:
Because one large table can give birth to multiple slices, each requiring a significant number of columns for either calculation or display, and slices may feed more than one view, a large number of columns can become necessary as an app grows.
It would be ideal if we could have a little link next to each column in the view editor that would take us directly to the column to be edited. I can imagine, however, that that would be difficult to implement. In the meantime, couldn’t we have the numbers to help us locate the appropriate column more quickly?
