Ver 3.10 - new PAGES Feature

Just looked at the new PAGES feature.

Got to say - I love it

Much cleaner that dash boards and not of that nonsense of having to try and control limiting to one table entry etc.

I only had one fairly complicated dashboard) and wanted to revamp it anyway. I also see the change of language from Ninox no code required to Ninox Low code.

For anyone who does not know how to find PAGES

Go into Edit Mode (Spanner Mode). Then at the foot of the form (bottom Left)

where it say's New Table press the arrow next to it - Add. New Page pops up above it.

    Since the apps are not updated to 3.10, I was wondering how a Page would show up in an app. Well, in MacOS v3.9.3, a Page shows up as a table. You can add records. So be careful about how you use it until the apps catch up.

    Another warning to users who use the app. Don't edit your pages in the app as it will turn it back into a table in the browser.

       I agree. For me, to have a major feature whose (accidental) use on one platform destroys its usability on another is a problem. Is it technically impossible for Ninox gmbh to 'hardwire disable' the editing of a Page in the app, until they get it working the app? Then I could avoid accidents and bring myself to use Pages.

    The all-new "pages" seem to be a great feature. It is much more straightforward and clean.

    So, now I and other users must decide whether to covert our previous functional one-record table dashboards.

    Due to limited documentation, I was wondering if there are things you can accomplish in "pages" that you can't do with old-fashioned dashboards.

    Is it worth the transition to pages?

      I'm transitioning one of my dashboards and it is a lot of work. Maybe once Jacques fixes Ninext's copy/paste to work in Pages then it will be easier.

      If you wanted to change how your dashboard worked then a switch to Pages could be a time to use it. But I don't think I would spend too much time converting just so you have Pages instead of Dashboards.

       I'm glad you confirm my initial feeling that currently there is no particular reason for turning my dashboard into a page unless it's a major update.

      Seems like made a conversion tool to convert tables into pages.

      Check the German-language forum here

    It would be very important to carry out a TUTORIAL on the PAGES to avoid making major mistakes.

       Essentially it look and feels the same as a dashboard

    As I only have one dashboard fro my admin purposes - I am setting several "Pages"  to release to lower  ranked users. Thus I can get rid of may table views and I have not got to worry about other screen controls needing to be then hidden etc.

    I'm guessing however, that Ninox bought "Pages" these into play for 2 reasons :-

    1. To appeal to newbies insofar as that it offers a cleaner interface and maybe not having to learn how to control a dashboard - As far as I can tell it does nothing that a good designed dashboard does and I would go as far as to say that it technically is a one record table in disguise. Borne out by the fact that Fred said if used on an app it seems to convert back to a table

    2. To get some designed element out ahead of   for a change. 🤣🤣

       Hi Mel. I can confirm it is, I suffered from being an early adopter and found my page turned back into a table when I accessed it on my phone. The phone version hadn't caught up at the time. All good now though.
