Add a new row to a large table

If you have a table with many rows or just want to make data entry easy then here are two easy ways to do it

  1. Use a Button to add a row
  2. Use a view ( filters to show only a few rows)

Both these options allow you to prefill some of the columns if you want to do so.


The button is a good way to add items to a large, sorted table. Otherwise it jumps around as you type in the fields.

This is another great reason we need a Text input control on the canvas, or something equivalent (a way to access user entered text on the canvas from a formula). You can use most data types (checkboxes, lists, lookups, etc) from the canvas but you can’t enter numbers or text. Custom forms become possible with such a Text control.
