I don’t see a post here for the Trello candidate “adding columns to items”. Please delete/merge if this is a duplicate feature request: https://trello.com/c/06RIufbM/91-adding-columns-to-items
Documents like recipes, schedules, and budgets aren’t expressed effectively as outlines. Data structures for nesting data are great for visualizing relationships between descendants or types - but not so great for visualizing relationships between categories of attributes. Outline “hacks” like markdown or nesting are a workaround.
For example, it’s a lot easier to scan a daily agenda in a table because the columns neatly align times and event names. In an outline you have to force either the time or event name into a parent/child relationship.
Tables! Would love the ability to structure data as a relational table within outlines. For example:
Interests > Cooking > Recipes > Family Recipes > Mom’s Banana Bread <-- (table document)
My profession is user experience, happy to suggest a few design approaches. No idea how much dev effort it would take to implement a lightweight-UI but I can definitely think of a few ideas to test out.
