|Target Version||5.0||Fixed in Version||5.0|
|Summary||0014935: 'Source' column and other default columns for list views|
|Description||For location sunodes (especially tracks scanned/paired from the cloud locations) it would be valuable to show the Source column like this:|
so that user can see/sort by the source (remote versus local)
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||2125|
Maybe we could enable the Source column for all nodes with path column and place it just before the path?
Title, Artist, Album, Length, Rating, Source, Path
like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/erzcuoiwr3jx3cp/Screenshot%202018-07-03%2016.14.17.png?dl=0
Note: I assume that you mean to just modify the current defaults to include Source just before the path for Location/Folders/Cloud drive nodes.
The default columns in all views (except for 'All Videos') was
['title', 'artist', 'album', 'length', 'bitrate', 'path']
so I changed it to
['title', 'artist', 'album', 'length', 'bitrate', 'source', 'path']
in build 2124
I guess that the 'source' column is useful whenever the path column is displayed (e.g. in 'Music > All tracks) to see whether it is just remote track link or local file etc.
Let me know if you don't think so (or whether the defaults should differ based on node type)
Added the new column defaults per collection in build 2125.
Just a note, isn't there currently too many default columns for the "Automatic columns width" feature?
e.g. for music there are:
['title', 'artist', 'album', 'date', 'genre', 'rating', 'length', 'bitrate', 'source', 'path', 'filename', 'lastPlayed']
which isn't much usable for the "Automatic columns width" feature:
Especially the 'filename' column seems to be redundant to 'path' ? And the 'date' column doesn't seem to be needed in the defaults?
i.e. I would suggest to remove 'date' and 'filename' from the defaults?
Re the green fields for the 'simple list view', I haven't added them as the 'Simple list view' is deprecated and replaced by the "Automatic columns width" feature.
Re. the fact that there are too many columns for 'automatic column widths': I wasn't aware of the decision to deprecate Simple list view (and the consequent effect that the default view will therefore be more crowded). That said, I think that for most of our users (who are reasonably advanced) there aren't many columns that should be removed by default. I've updated the document as follows:
- Removed bitrate as a default
- Removed last played as a default
Re. Now Playing: the basic NP should remain as it is: #, Title, Rating, Artist - Title, Time (my comment about Now Playing was in reference to a full NP view which isn't currently implemented).
Lastly re. duplication of Path and Filename, the intent is that Path should only display the first few characters of the path so that the user can either sort by path or hover over the path to see the full path.
