Release 204 of the Tulip platform is here. This release contains routine bug fixes and small feature updates, as well as the new Table Queries and Aggregations feature. Let’s dive in.
Table Queries and Aggregations
With Table Queries, users can manipulate records, and perform deeper analysis on their data. Run multiple operations on top of different columns, and define queries that can be shared across apps.
As an example, this table of Orders has 10 rows:
We can use a filter to return only rows that have not been shipped:
In Table Queries, users have several different options for types of queries that can be performed:
In addition to tables, Queries can be added to apps easily, allowing you to Query an interactive table in your app.
Aggregations can be created and applied across any number of queries. These features will allow you to build and display lists of data based on certain criteria in apps and pull up specific records when you need them.
In Aggregations, users have several different options for types of calculations that can be performed:
Just like Queries, Aggregations are easily added into apps. App logic can be built around an aggregations value also to perform actions and show messages.
