We've implemented three cool new features in the past few months, custom views, document folders and an improved query builder. This blog post is about the first one:
Custom views let you sort and filter your data without writing queries. Some systems call these types of views reports. Many Excel users will be familiar with this functionality. Sorting and filtering are very useful when you're dealing with rows upon rows of data and you want to have a quick peek into what it looks like organized in a particular way.
An example of a custom view would be Employees, sorted by last name descending and ordered by start date. What's really cool with the views is that because they are saved, you can refer back to a view any time by selecting it from the drop-down at the top of your table (in grid view).

With the new custom view builder, you can select the fields you want with a very high level of granularity, even excluding rows. For example, let's say you have an Employees table with the following columns: Name, Email, Salary and StartDate. With custom views, you can display the list of employees by Name, grouped into salary chunks and ordered by start date, with email hidden.
We have made this feature available as a module in all Qrimp apps. Install it today to give it a try and if you need help, a Help Topic is also available.
We offer both kinds of FogBugz--hosted and installable--and our customers opt 4 to 1 to install it at their own site. For us, the installable option gives us five times the sales. ... we've got racks and racks of nice, well-managed Dell servers with plenty of capacity and our tech support costs for the hosted version are zero. Life would be much easier. But we'd be making so much less money we'd be out of business.
