Subtitles are managed by Containers and display on the list view of a Container as well as the detail view on Items. Subtitles are a great way to feature additional content along with the name of each item.
Determine what Information should Display as the Subtitle
Think about what information is important for your app users to quickly view along with the name of each item.
- For Contacts, a good subtitle is a title or position.
- For Events, consider adding the location as a subtitle.
- For Sermons, the date can be a great subtitle.
Add the Subtitle to the Items
- We typically recommend using a Plain Text draggable to add the subtitle information.
- You will want the Header Label on all the subtitles to have the same label. To update the Header Label, double click on the orange icon next to property. Change the Label field to the label for the subtitles.
- You may want to hide the subtitle by checking the Hide Property Row box. This keeps the subtitle from showing twice on the item, once as the subtitle and a second time with the other properties.
Enable the Subtitle on the Container
- Go to the container where the items are listed. Click on the gray pencil icon next to container to edit the container settings.
- Make sure you have selected a template that supports two lines of text. Once the correct template is selected, a field for Subtitle will appear.
- Click the arrow to show all the subtitle options. Choose the property you want to be the subtitle on the items.
Things to Remember:
- Make sure the label field on your Plain text draggable is consistent. That way, when you change your Container settings, it will ensure that all subtitles from each Item will show.
- For subtitles to show, choose a Container layout that allows for two lines of text.
- Click the "Hide Property Row" checkbox to avoid redundant information.
