Thanks Don, I never understood the value of the Kanban view, until you demonstrated it — I'd seen the Airtable announcement video…
Quick Tip: Inspired by your demo, I had a play… a Base symbol defaults to its first two letters, unless you select one of the Airtable icons, so I used an an emoji as the first character, followed by a space — "???? Wine List" now I've a colourful wine glass as the Base symbol. Unfortunately my wine inventory doesn't warrant a Base : (

Hi Ferrers, Yes, the Kanban view is very useful. I'm in the same boat re the wine inventory - we constantly have a dozen bottles but all of the same wine :)
