Appropriate input methods are available, to match the type of data added:
Start With Table
This fitts for data in typical table format.
A quick way to create a simple table, but not all field types are available in this mode.
Form Draft
Using this you create a form with input fields. Allows to add all type of fields in a form view.

This decision is not final, you can use the different modes at any time.

For this explanation we follow the "Form Draft" to the form editor:

Table view and other types of views

(Table-) Views an important part of InnoList.

They show your data and allow to edit them directly. Using views you can:

  • Edit Values, Add Rows
  • Show data in different ways: as table, lines, cards, bricks, squares, vertical areas
  • Filter, Group, Sort
  • Using Drag-and-Drop: Change order or assign new values
  • etc.

Add And Edit Views

To structure your data we suggest to create appropriate views to keep the overview.

New views are added and modified using the context menu Mouse Right Click of a navigation item.
When duplicating the current settings are kept and a new view is created.

Context Menu for a Navigation Item

With Modify Navigation you decide where and how the navigation items are shown. Using this less frequent used views can be invisible but still accessible.

Example for 'Modify Navigation'
