Dates & Times
. . . and hot off of last week’s Text Input control launch, we made a few quick tweaks to enable one more type of control for your docs: Lookups!
You can easily convert lookup columns to controls by clicking on the column header and then selecting “Filter” > "Interactive filter” > “+ Create control.”
Similar to other controls, you can also add them to any page using the slash command (in this case, simply type /lookup), and create filters using the
Matches() formula. You can also edit your control settings by right clicking on them; this enables you to do things like change your source lookup table, allow multiple selections, determine the order in which selectable items are sorted, and more (be sure to expand the “Item settings” in the control settings to see all of your options!)
You can learn more about patterns using the
Matches() formula in last week’s Text input control announcement.
Almost all docs should see this new feature today, although there are some docs still upgrading to include lookup controls. If you experience issues, our friendly Codans are available to help troubleshoot at email@example.com.
