  • Search for apps and pages: View search results on mobile broken down by result type and use saved recent searches to find the content you need most often.

  • Sort a grid: Use column headers to trigger ascending or descending sort on columns within grids on mobile.

Improvements to the new UX

  • Editable drill down: Easily edit values in a drilled down grid to see the impact of changes at the bottom level of a drilled down hierarchy on the aggregated summaries. 

  • Field card layout: Update the layout of your fields on the Board with the new horizontal layout option on Field Cards.

  • Board performance: We have improved the loading time of Boards by only loading the cards visible in the browser on initial load. Additional cards are only loaded as they are scrolled in to view. This can mean significant performance improvements on long Boards.
