    You can work with tables via third parties applications.

    Have you looked, e.g. at http://tableflipapp.com for Mac, https://workflow.is and http://omz-software.com/pythonista/ for iOS?

    I'd love to have a table view. The 1st level sub-items would be the column headers, and their children would be the data for that column. This would make long lists that have many children much easier to view.

    For example this data:

    Could be switched to a table view like this:

    Would love to have WorkFlowy do this simply, because I have data unnecessarily in Excel docs whereas it could all otherwise be neatly stored in WorkFlowy too.

    The new board view does not completely solve the issue. Scrolling down tab A does not scroll down tab b as well.

    Could it be possible to add something like scrollbinding in vim? Would lead to a correct column view.

    If I understand the rumours correctly, a table view is being discussed, Uwe.

    I too would love a table view!

    I would suggest an adjustment to Aaron's idea. Rather than having each bullet point represent a column, it represents a row. A row typically corresponds to an entity in a spreadsheet, for example. For what it's worth, this is how Roam Research does tables. (But theirs is view-only, and I'd want to be able to edit the table!)

    Add a simple table view, and I will never, ever leave WorkFlowy.

    I think it would be a really awesome if this could be implemented the say way as the "Kanban board" view, that is, a view that sits on top of the existing bullet-list (node-tree) structure.

    For instance, if you have the following nodes:

    • Table:
      • Person1:
        • First name: Clark
        • Last name: Kent
        • Address: 1 Smallville St.
        • Hobbies: Flying, running.
      • Person2:
        • First name: Lex
        • Last name: Luthor
        • Address: 666 Northpole Rd
        • Hobbies: Hunting, shooting.

    And you switch to the "Table view" (option located together with the to the "Board"/"Bullets" view-modes), with the "Table" node selected.

    You would get a view like the following:

    Where you can edit the table values just like you do in the Board view (but probably not edit column names).

    I would very much appreciate a table view as well. In addition to the above, I would love to the have the ability to color the cells so it can become a bit of a Gantt chart to capture key project tasks and timeline.
