Let Us Do A Quick Introduction About Quire Table View

Picture this: a high-tech blend of your favorite spreadsheet's organization mojo and the straightforwardness that you love about Quire. Hold on a sec, though.

This isn't just any ordinary feature facelift. Table View isn't just here to make your projects look prettier – though it does that with style – it's here to give you an entirely new way of tackling your tasks.

You can switch to your Table View for the project by clicking on the table view icon. You can choose which fields to show as columns in the table view in this step as well.

The real superstar here is the customizability that Table View brings to the table (pun intended) 😎 You can choose to utilize the tried-and-true Quire default fields, or better yet, you can don the hat of a project virtuoso and craft your own fields.

You heard that right - tailor the fields to your unique needs. If you're all about the project cost, add a "Budget" column. If your team thrives on time spent on tasks, insert a "Time log" field. The power lies in your hands.

Flexibility is the cornerstone of effective project management. Table View in Quire understands this need for agility. Rearranging columns is as simple as drag-and-drop.

Want to keep your most crucial information front and center? Rearrange the columns that matter the most to your team to the front so you can emphasize that information. With this level of adaptability, managing your project becomes less of a chore and more of a strategic dance.

In the classic list view, things could sometimes get a tad overwhelming. With Table View, it's like your projects all got VIP passes to the same gig, and they're hanging out together in one super-organized space.

Did you remember we’ve also just released Custom Fields? The Table View lets you add custom fields that become columns in the table, giving you the flexibility to track exactly what matters to you.

Whether you're tracking budgets, client information, or even the color of your project's unicorn mascot (we won't judge), Table View lets you do it with flair. It's like having your project data laid out before you in a glorious smorgasbord of columns, just waiting for you to dig in.

For instance, you can create a custom field to indicate if your tasks are taking longer than the estimated hours. It's like a caution sign that warns you when you're venturing into time overdrive.

Also, we're all about keeping things visual, so why not make those tasks pop with different colors? Tasks with longer working hours can stand out like beacons, alerting you to potential hiccups.
