Hi -- you can use a calculation field for this. You'll need to enter a “dummy” variable for it to work, like:

/// @Unique ID;
"----------"

Or even :

/// @Unique ID;
"## SECTION TITLE\n----------"

To display:

SECTION TITLE


You can use any markdown code (look that up if needed).

HTH.

The red line and "Systemfelder ..." are self made pics, stored on a website; they have a public URL. You can also store these pics as files in Podio and then use the Podio file-URL. But if you store them in Podio and if you have stored them in Workspace A and use them also in Workspace B, only those users can see them, who are also member in Workspace A (and have access to the files). So I like to store them on an own website with a public URL; then every user cann see them. You can also use this service to create a separator with a public URL (play with it and you see what's possible).

For implementing them in a calculation field I use markdown code (to learn more about markdown follow Adrien's link). The basic code structure for images in calc fields is "![](url)"

The signs in front of the field names are Emoji unicode characters (copy them form the "Native" column).

Btw: With markdown code you can also create hyperlinks and show code as

@rainer - I managed to create nice looking section headers which are great for the browser experience but terrible on the phone app.

Is there anything that can be done to improve the user experience on the phone app which doesn't appear to support this?

Hey Richard,

I assume you're talking about the iPhone app, cause in the Android app they should be shown correctly (that's cause the calculation fields can't be rendered 100% correctly in both apps, e.g for tables, in the iPhone app the rendering options are even worse). 

The only workaround is to create real images (.png or .jpeg) and use them as separators. The images can be stored in Podio and you can use the Podio file url in the calc field - but then each user must have access to that workspace where the images are stored. If one doesn't have access to that workspace the images wouldn't be displayed for that user. If you use Globiflow you can get a public url for each stored image which you can use in the calculation field. An alternate is to have the images on a webpage and to take that url.

Yes, your're right - I'm referring to iPhone. Looks like I will be changing my phone...;)

I suppose I could store the images in an archived app in the same workspace...or set them up on gDrive open to anyone with the link? I will give it a try.

 

Thanks
