Please allow the same rich text features for the Show-text column type.
- This will allow us to construct custom info-display systems without having to actually store any of that data
What I’m specifically talking about here is a “summary field”, something I’ll typically create in order to summarize the data of a row (or a bunch of rows) into a single field that’s easy to digest. All of this data is essentially duplicated data, and there is very little reason why I would want to store it - if I do, I’ll create a LongText column.
- A “Summary Field” is a great way to take a bunch of other data - that would otherwise take up much more space on the screen - and condense it.
"<Table> <tr> <td><b>Data Source Work</td></b> </tr> <tr> <th>Year</th> <th>Month</td> <th>Day</th> <th>Start Time</th> <th>End Time</th> <th>Duration</th> <th>Cost</th> <tr> <th>2021</th> <th>Jul</th> <th>24</th> <th>9:09 AM</th> <th>9:31 AM</th> <th>00:22:09</th> <th>$0</th> </tr> </table> <table> <tr> <th>Notes:</th> <th>Construction Jobs:</th> </tr> </table>"
The total size of this code, as found from http://bytesizematters.com, is
- This is data that the app will transmit back and forth that I don’t really need to happen.
- Removing this “bloat” from the app will help reduce not only the actual amount of transmitted data, but also the speed of the sync.
As always, thanks for considering!
