    Hi. Any update on this?
    Several of the recent updates have been great, but I'm still very eager to see anything that increases the information density on the screen. Most of my users don't have wide monitors & use the windows default 150% zoom on their laptops, which makes forms *so* much harder to use. Ideas like:
    * this kind of record-specific tool-tip,
    * reduced margin padding, and/or controls placed on the same row on child views, ( https://help.trackvia.com/forums/218120-i-would-like-to-see/suggestions/40755607-wide-screen )
    * wrapping form field labels ( https://help.trackvia.com/forums/218120-i-would-like-to-see/suggestions/44281725-wrapping-field-labels-on-forms )
    * using something like show/hide rules to control the collapse or expansion of form sections (see my comment on https://help.trackvia.com/forums/218120-i-would-like-to-see/suggestions/15617202-show-hide-feature-on-forms )
    * wrapping column headers ( https://help.trackvia.com/forums/218120-i-would-like-to-see/suggestions/18814909-column-headers-please-allow-wrap-text )
    * automatically narrowing lane view columns based on screen width
    * allowing form components to span multiple rows without forcing the rest of the row to clear, more like dashboard layout
    * having child views on forms vertically resize manually &/or based on the length of the content so empty /short tables take up less room, etc...
    Thanks!

    Thanks Kimberly. Adding a tool-tip option to a field would be a little bit helpful, giving context for the entire field, but I was hoping for a tool-tip that could have unique content for _each_ record. I think that kind of tool-tip text would have to be stored in a separate field. The main advantages would be:
    1. higher information density AND less clutter at the same time. It would allow additional information to be included in a view without needing to show (or scroll over to) an additional column.
    2. the content of the tool-tip could be generated dynamically by a calculation, triggered field, or app script, rather than just being hard-coded into the table

    Hi. Any update on this?
    I'm currently laboriously maintaining a spreadsheet of all my app scripts (135 scripts, if I separate multiple independent functions grouped together under the same table trigger, 62 if I treat each trigger on each table as a single script, across 27 tables, out of 130 total tables in the app) just so that I can remember where they all are, what they do, what triggers them, and what tables they affect. I tried tracking them with a TrackVia app, but it was too cumbersome. Thanks!

    Here's another example of unnecessary white space, and I think this one would not require a change to the current design guidelines. Could the view selection dropdown at the left be in the same row as the search, filter, sort, and new record controls to the right. Screen space is precious, especially with something as bulky as the grid in a child view!

    It would be lovely if there were an option for the Edit form for the underlying join table to popup as each Multi-select item is added. I understand that records aren't created until the form's current record is saved, so I'll cheat and add a second request here to have the option to make open forms Auto Save at a selected interval. That would be incredibly valuable to allow forms to be more interactive (populating calculated fields on the form or showing associated child records. It would go a long way to allowing the form to help prevent the creation of redundant child records and allowing user input to be informed by existing data when creating new records.

    Any update on this? I wish for this all the time and for the same reason: to be able to easily identify redundant and vestigial fields and resources. Its very time consuming currently and makes maintenance difficult. Support staff have helpfully provided some back end data that helps a little bit but that was a one off. In a similar way it would be great to know
    which filters are used nowhere;
    which views are never preferred parents nor assigned to any user roles nor children on any forms nor on any dashboards
    which forms are unassigned
    which tables have no records etc
