Data Display Settings
The Data Display Settings are the settings that are directly related to the data results on the front end of the bloc.
Completely hides the results section.
This is the default view and outputs the data as a normal data table style.
Displays each entry as a single bloc of data (useful for low number of entries with lots of fields)
The Calendar is currently available by default on the front end. It displays your data in a calendar based on the date it was entered.
You can however set a Primary Calendar Field which allows the data to be sorted by the dates in that field.
Coming Soon: A calendar-only view with a more powerful calendar with data of your choice embedded right in the day. For example, you will be able to choose that you would like "Field 1"s data to appear as an item. This will allow you to build your own various types of calendars.
By Clicking the entries it will load that data only in the results. In this example, all data was entered on the 12th April
Here is the same calendar, all date entered on the 12th of April, but using the "Primary Calendar Field" option instead of the default entry date
You can also apply a "Week" view
The File view will change how the data is layed out entirely, much like the "Primary Calendar Field" option above, we will be able to set a "Primary File Field" and the data will be layed out by icons of files with the ability to hover or click on it to see more data associated with it. This will be a poweful tool as each file will still be able to seem like a piece of data entry, while the bloc will essentially server as a file manager.
The Kanban view give you the power to lay out the data as a Kanban View, allowing to move data entries "Left" and "Right", where each column will represent a value in a field. For example, currently you could create a field called "Project Status" and change the values of this using a dropdown. Instead you will be able to pick the field which is serving as the column options, e.g. a field called Kanban Columns with values "Start", "In Progress", "End".
This is currently in investigation and research and we will publish more information as soon as the criteria of this data option have been set out.
that is placed on the right of the data results. For blocs with a small number of fields this can be useful for tidying up the data view.
The icon normally appears on the right of the last field
By default, using the File Field, if you upload an image, it appears a clickable link with the file name in the data. Using this setting you can view the image inside the data instead.
View with this setting turned on
We are currently considering making this the default view. All users will be notified in advance of this change.
Currently in the front end, it is possible to reverse the data to see it from oldest to newest. To have this set by default then choose this setting.
By default, when the data is taking up the full width of screen, the username of the individual who entered the data appears. This option hides this.

With the setting off.
Removes the time stamp from the data when the data is in full width view.
With the setting off.
With the setting on.
Currently in the Bloc front end, it is possible to show the links to allow you to edit. This setting makes these always appear.
This setting tightens up the space and reduces the font size in the data.
Data, Field Names and space reduced. Useful for blocs with lots of data appearing.
Currently you can decide on the Bloc front end how much data you would like to see. This setting allows you to set this by default.
You can decide the colours of cells in the data based on specific values. This is especially useful for flagging issues or just getting a quick view of specific entries without having to filter.
An example where colours have been set to 1,2,3,4 and More Data
Coming Soon: An option to have the whole row coloured based on a value in the row.
You can set the number of columns/fields that show in the results. The default is 5. This is useful for tidying up your form. See the next option for understanding how to move fields out of your field number limit in order to hide it.
In this example, 4 fields are appearing with the "Image" field hidden. Field 2 is currently in the second position. But by continuing the action above, Field 2 would be moved down one and Field 3 would be moved up.
Note: This Field order behaves completely independantly of the orders set out when building the form inside the elements. However the natural order that is created initially is set by the order of which you created the fields.
