Highlighting for selector rows#

A small but mighty fix. Grist now highlights the selected row linked to widgets on a page.

Community Highlights#

  • @wunter8 has created a calendar widget that is a great example of what custom widgets can do. Who knows, maybe this could inspire an official calendar widget? 👀 (@ToJans also shared a calendar widget back in March.) wunter8's Calendar Widget
  • Database-heads will appreciate @John1’s PostgreSQL Foreign Data Wrapper, which is a very neat tool that allows you to import and query Grist tables in PostgreSQL.

Learning Grist#

Webinar: Deconstructing the Digital Sales CRM Template#

In July we’ll rebuild our Digital Sales CRM template. This template contains common structural patterns used in Grist documents for a variety of use cases. It also has common, simple examples of lookup formulas, and analyzes the same sales data two ways: lifetime revenue by customer and lifetime revenue by product.

Thursday July 20th at 3:00pm US Eastern Time.


Deconstructing the Software Deals Tracker Template#

In June we rebuilt the Software Deals Tracker. This template has multiple pages and widgets focused on different workflows, and yet the document is built on only one data table. We show you why to help you anticipate your own use cases where all you need is one table with multiple views.

Organizing a field trip requires juggling parental permissions, lunches, payments, chaperones, and other faculty. It’s a lot! Bring zen to your field trip planning with this new template.
