Understand your business from all angles.

Lark Base offers various views to help you visualize your data in different ways: Grid view, Kanban view, Gantt view, Gallery view, and Calendar view. Simply click "Task list" in your Base to change the view of your Base within seconds.

To summarize the different views:

  • Grid view is the default view. It looks like a traditional table and is easier for beginners to get started with. You can add multiple fields and define the format of all cells in the fields. Grid view is applicable in any scenario.

  • Kanban view displays compact record cards to ensure more efficient access to key information. To help you get a quick idea about the content of a record, Kanban view supports showing a preview of the record's attachment field as its cover.

  • Gantt view allows you to click on specific dates to create milestones. It also allows you to select any time dimension such as a week, month, quarter, or year. Gantt view displays the progress of every task with a progress bar, making the view useful for project management.

  • Gallery view visualizes content found in the attachment field, directly displaying any file content such as images and PDFs. You can click the record cards to view more record information.

  • Calendar view allows you to manage events, schedule projects, and arrange activities more effectively. Collaborators can see event schedules and duration at a glance, and updates can be easily made to keep the whole team on the same page.

Share dashboards easily.

Share dashboards without sending the whole base. Customize the dashboard's sharing scope based on your needs to ensure data security without hindering collaboration. You can also use group fields in Base: add one or multiple Lark groups in the group field to let users easily access or join groups.

Tip: you can configure automated workflow to add members to groups, remove members from groups, and more!

The possibilities with Base are limitless. Want to learn about how Base can be customized to help your team? Contact us today!
