I am a new user, still in my trial period, and so far am finding this program so primitive as to be unusable. The instructions haven’t helped.
Is it really as bad as it seems, or is it me? To give some examples:
–In creating pages and views, the amount of the screen devoting to creating the view is tiny, so it’s hard to work. A huge amount of space in the left side is allocated to listing the pages. There doesn’t seem to be any way to shrink this.
–In creating a table view, there does not seem to be any way to order the columns. There also does not seem to be any way to adjust column width. Kind of defeats the purpose of creating a view. There also doesn’t seem to be a way to hide a cell that has too much text and then select it to expand it.
–The visual look in the user view is also terrible and very unprofessional looking. Doesn’t seem to be any way to customize this.
–In creating tables, you supposedly can order the fields by dragging them. I have not been able to get this to work. They drag but then go back to where they were.
–I put together a table view that includes data from two different objects. I added an option to show details - but it only shows details from one of the objects, not the whole record (from both objects). Again, I thought the point of a relational database was that you could pull from multiple objects.
All in all, I am about to give up and just hire someone to create a database with a program that requires coding, as I am concluding this no-code idea just is way too primitive. At this point, I’d be much better off with spreadsheets - at least I could have the whole screen to work, and can order columns, adjust their sizes, etc.
Is there something I am missing here? Also, wondering if the functionality is higher on a laptop. I am working from an Android, which I thought was going to be ok because Knack says that it is very mobile friendly, but maybe that is why I am having so many problems. Given the reviews it’s gotten, it’s hard to believe the program could be this primitive.
