Hi Coda Community!
Just thought I’d share an idea I had for creating a section designed for users to add a new entry to a table. This may have been done before but I’m not sure!
In my case, I have a table called “Projects” and I wanted a quick way for users to add a new Project to the table. I decided to do this by creating a section with a Card view, but the view is filtered to only show rows created within the last 30 minutes. This means the card view will be empty on most visits, ready to click the ‘plus’ button, however if a user has just made a new row and wants to make a change, it will still be there for a while to quickly modify. By keeping it there for 30 minutes it also makes it clear to the user the row was actually created (as opposed to hiding it immediately).

The formula ^
Created(thisRow)>(Now()-TimeValue(“00:30:00”)) && Created(thisRow)<(Now())
