We now have so many tips coming from Scott “Captain Redlaces” Sewell that the pressure is mounting to add Captain as ah honorary tipster or, at very least, dedicate a category for him. As suggested by the man himself: “TIL”.

If you’re going to use mobile App or Safari – best practice is to include the “Name” field in the view if the view is to be used on a tablet.
It makes sense to include the “Name” as the first column in your views for 2 reasons –
- The Name is always listed as the first (bold) line for each record in dashboards lists in the Tablet Apps (See picture)
- Unless you have the “Name” field in the view, you can’t open that record from the view on an iPad in Safari. – (because on the iPad you can’t double-click, you can only open records where you have the “name” field visible – admittedly it’s an edge case, but we were promoting ‘open the record in browser and you can see the related records in the subgrid – as a way to deflect trying to put every record in the app. – but we found that they couldn’t open those records in the subgrids b/c there was no link to them. – we added the “name” and like magic the design is approved.
