Book Connect

Redesigned Column and Sort Order field selection screens

March 21st, 2018

The ability to select your own Columns for the List View is an important customization feature of Book Connect. The same holds for selecting the Sort Order fields.

However, the “field selection” screens for doing these customizations were a bit outdated and finding a field could be tricky. So we decided to re-imagine the field selection screens to make them easier to understand, easier to use and better to use on mobile devices too.

Redesigned Field Selection screen:

  • Available fields are now grouped, like the tabs in the Edit screen.
  • Easily find the field you want with the search box top left.
  • Use checkboxes on the left to select fields.
  • Use the “x” button on the right to remove fields.
  • Drag and drop fields on the right side to change the order.
  • For sorting: use the ASC/DESC button to change the sort direction of that particular field.
  • Works great on both your desktop and mobile browsers!
