Folders for Grouping Tables#44

Many of us have Tons of tables and would appreicate a way to organise them. There are plugins that can organise post types like “happy files” however, WDT doesn’t seem to use a CPT for tables. Therefore, we need a native solution for organisation.

This does not make sense.

Can you clarify what was confusing for you?

All tables are listed in one list. I don’t understand this request either.

Example, I have several clients who can edit their tables in frontend. I’d like to group each client’s tables in a folder in the right side panel. Check what “Happy Files” and “Folders Pro” can do to CPTs and Media files.

This is a database tool and not an organization tool.

Maybe instead of folders, they could add a categories metadata option and then a typeahead filter option at the top of the Browse Tables page. That would allow you to have a way to quickly filter down to select tables based on category/subcategory. This same strategy is used in Posts, Pages, Events, etc. so users would be familiar with it.

I would also find the ability to organize tables very helpful! I create hundreds of tables in various reports that I publish, so having a way to group and organize tables I have created in the past would be very useful for me.

I won’t be needing this feature, but I just read the documentation about it and have to say you did impressive work on this.
If the features I would be needing the most (especially the big one in progress) turn out to be even nearly as well thought and implemented as this, I will be very happy..! Coding good usability takes its time, so not rushing it is the right way to go.
