1.16 release of Baserow

Blog placeholder image

This month, we continued to enhance our platform to ensure that you and your team can work as efficiently as possible. Today we are delighted to introduce Calendar view, the Group to Workspace rename, and more. For a deeper understanding of our new features, here is our roundup of the release from March. Let’s get right to it!

Calendar view

The calendar view allows you to visualize information by dates. In other words, you can visualize how table rows connect to specific dates. You can use the calendar view to keep track of events, deadlines, schedules, and more.

This is a Premium feature, and to use it, your table must contain a field with dates. It supports the following field types:

  • Date
  • Last modified
  • Created on

To add a calendar view, you need to go to the view switcher and click on the Calendar + button. Then, you’ll need to select one of the table’s date fields (the one you want to be placed on the calendar).

This version enables basic features of a calendar view: you can create, duplicate, delete, or create a calendar view. Over the next few releases, we’ll be adding more functionality, such as sorting, filtering, row coloring, and more.

Group to workspace renaming

We have renamed “Group” in Baserow to “Workspace”. A workspace is now the highest-level organization unit in Baserow.

Everything you do in Baserow now takes place in a workspace, meaning all your databases and tables have an associated workspace, and not a group anymore. With this change, we intend to make the Baserow terminology more clear and simple for everybody.

If you’re a developer, please read this page about some API endpoint changes.

Shortcut to add a multiple cells selection

We added a handy new shortcut—multiple cells selection, which is designed to speed up your workflows.

With Shift + Click, you can now easily select multiple cells. Click the first cell in the range, and then hold down Shift while you click the last cell in the range.

Pre-fill the name of the field after the linked table name

When adding a new Link to table field type, the default name in the create and edit field context is now set according to the name of the related table. This means that the pre-fill feature pre-populates the Link to table fields’ names with data from a linked table of your database.

The Baserow community page
