Formulas to save space on docs


With the new layout feature, I’m thinking of a way to decrease the numbers of tables views therefore decrease the number of sections to save space on my document.

A way to do this would be to be able to have a control with a formula that could dynamically hide columns, another that could change display columns (for detail view), another that could switch detail view template.

There are many interesting systems that could be developed about space saving.

I would love to know what you think about it.



The ability to toggle customized Layouts of data would be great. Or any Display Type, really.

As a most basic example, it would be nice to be able to toggle between a Display with all hidden columns hidden vs that same display with the hidden columns shown, in one click of a button.

Beyond the above binary example, imagine being able to construct a drop down list of different saved combinations of table display type, sorts, groups, filters and hidden rows, that could be accessed with the click of a button.

I haven’t checked yet, but I wonder if Automations will do this (or will do it in the future)?
