Hi,
I would like to know how to show timeline in calendar?

For exemple:
I have contract from 1.07.2016 till 31.10.2017, and the second from 1.08.2016 till 31.07.2018 (I have around 100 such contracts).
I would like to put the beginning date and end date (and that part is easy) but I can not show this period in calendar as a line.
I thought that If I put an appointment that would work but not. If you put even 10 appointments to the calendar is un useful.
I am looking for something like all day appointment like in mac's ical or like todo's record which is on the top of calendar.
Any ideas?

  • Hi YaQb,
    Appointments would be the only way to do this, but the result may be a bit underwhelming if there are many concurrent appointments.
    We'll consider your feature request for our further plannings.

    Hi, Alex,

    I found Ninox app very useful in my patients registry. It was very much impressive to my colleagues. They are also trying to download and use it. Thanks.

    I have a question about "grouping". How can I group my dates in months?
    I want a new view grouping my "entry dates" into Jan, Feb, Mar, etc. Please explain me if it is possible.

    Best regards,
    Min Oo

    Hello,
    in table view click on any table head and select "Show Column" -> "f(x) formula".
    –––
    format('Date Field', "YYYY-MM")
    –––
    You can now group by this new column.

    Cheers Birger - Ninox support

    Is it possible to sort a table by more than one column at a time? For example, Sort first by Last Name in ascending order, and secondarily sort by Zip Code in descending order?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Here is an example. Note that you'd have to create a combined column to sort by.

    You can set the font size globally. On the Ninox star page select the gear icon in the top right corner. It is nor possible to change the font.

  • How do I create a view that combines the rows from two different tables? Also, is there a way to establish the key->Fkey relationships between tables? I have the relationships showing up in the data modeler but do not see how to set the keyset relationships.

    If you could send me a copy of the Ninox database you are working on (Main menu -> "Save Archvie as...") I'm sure that I can find a solution to your problem.

    Please provide instructions for combining columns to create sort by more than one column as a "permanent" setting so that they do not need to be sorted each time Ninox is opened.

  • Hi, you can display a new column and choose "formula".
    In the formula you can combine two fields with "+".
    You will receive a new column after which you can sort.

    Alex,
    Thanks. I don't want to print or even view that column but if I "Hide" it, the sort function is lost. Any way to retain the function but suppress it's appearance?
    Like
  • Hi Hank, there needs to be one column where it is sorted by. Youc combine two columns as on with the formula editor to have both the sorting number and the content.
    This would be the best workaround.

    Hi, Birger,
    Another problem.

    I grouped my "Operation Date" in months as you said. They grouped. But as I expand the grey line, the dates are not in ascending order. They ordered according to id in ascending.

    How can I group the dates (in months) and on expanding, the dates should be in ascending or descending order?

    Please help me.

    Regards,
    Min Oo

    Hi, I am migrating from Bento. I love Ninox. I have a problem here.

    In Bento, under my simple client database, I create a monthly summary with "Smart collection" feature in Bento. In the past 8 years, I have stacked up almost 100 smart collections (each monthly), that I can always go back to double check. I can choose them easily from the drop down menu just under the database on the Left Pane in Bento.

    In Ninox, I have learned to use the Views, it's quick and powerful. The problem is, if I create >100 Views, the "View tab" bar will be cluttered. Is it possible to let user have an option of keeping the "View tab" on the top of the database, or keeping them on the left pane under the Database?

    Thank you!

    Hallo Tellef,

    this is possible to a degree:
    - Switch to admin mode. (Wrench icon in the top right corner is red!)
    - If you hoover over the fields (in form view) they'll get a pink frame.
    - Click the label of the image field to select it.
    - Drag the little squares to resize the field.
    - Note that at the moment you can only change with width.

    Hi Birger,

    It took me a while to understand what you mean. But still I can't find it.

    "On the Ninox star(t) page, select the gear icon in the top right corner. It is nor (now) possible to change the font." But how? After clicking the gear icon, I still can't find where I can change the font. Please help.

    Thank you!

    Hi Birger,

    I figured out, probably the font size of the Table/Views could not be changed anyway. Right? I am hoping to be able to make it 1 point bigger. But I can live with the current size.

    At the moment the font size in tables can only be changed globally. On the start page select the wrench icon and adjust zoom and font size.

    Thanks Birger,
    Just to clarify that for other users. It's not exactly the wrench icon. You have to close the database by clicking the "Ninox logo" on the left upper screen, choose "Close". A "setting logo" will appear on the right upper corner. Click on that, you will see the global font size setting from 12 to 16.
