Beta opportunity: Right row detail

This is something we are hoping to learn in Beta! Right now it will default to right & will be a sticky user preference. However, would be curious if there is a different behavior you would prefer.


Thanks for the feedback! Excited for you to try it out in the coming weeks & see what’s working well and what can be improved :slight_smile:

for dialog modals today, we can specify viewmode:“fullscreen” in the openrow() call.

please ensure there is a parameter for causing the dialog to open on the right.


(as a general rule, adding features to the UX and NOT enabling them from your scripting language is a huge wasted opportunity, imho.)


Thanks for the feedback! There is a parameter for right in the openrow() formula with this new feature:)


Thanks for all your interest in testing out this feature. We’ve been able to expand capacity a bit, so please sign up to participate if you’re interested. We look forward to hearing from you!

Just tried to sign up and the form states “This form is not currently accepting submissions.”


How will we know if/when this beta is enabled for ourselves?

Great design decision, can’t wait to try it out. :heart_eyes:

Hi Teresa,

Did you already start the Beta test? I signed up after you first posted, but I haven’t heard anything yet.

Same here, I guess next week

Yes, you can expect an email from us next week confirming that your account has been given access. Thank you for signing up and for your patience as we get this enabled for all the sign-ups!


The beta has been enabled for my account. Looks and works great. Huge improvement!

I like the new feature (Beta enabled today), especially the possibility to have more variants (modal, side, fullscreen).

Hi @Andrei_Kharlanov-- thanks for flagging this! We’ve addressed what we think the issue is here and you should have access by tomorrow.


Hey Team,

Not sure if this is the right forum to provide feedback, but:

The side popout view is great and something i’ve been waiting on for a long while to further close the gap on anything notion can do that coda can’t do [better] (side note: simple tables ever coming soon so they don’t need to be a part of the doc map architecture?)

One point of feedback in the UI is the following. I’ve found that suggested changes and comments overlap text in a canvas type column. Screenshot below and another one from middle row view that shows how that is not an issue:

Hope this helps and there’s a solution coming!

All the best,
