34 // Do You Get It?
Formable’s filtering functionality is the area I’ve seen people struggle to understand the most, so I worked on that this week.
One particular thing: I got really annoyed that there was no quick way to jump to yesterday’s notes.
So I added these arrows to the today filter:
To be honest, the whole filtering functionality is still a bit hard to grasp.
I’m mainly trying to counteract that by making the whole thing optional for new users. There will be some predefined filter sets, so in the beginning one can just use some predefined views, like one would in most other software—you normally don’t write your own queries in most apps.
Filters will still be shown, to teach people how they are built.
Looking forward to collecting more feedback from you. Have a good one!
