List blocks and form blocks are one of the most dynamic and versatile capabilities within your Applaud platform. A list block can be anything you wish to see on your page, from news articles, employee directories, upcoming birthdays to links to external websites and applications.
List blocks are sections of information on a page designed by you. This list functions by combining a preconfigured model, a preconfigured data entry form, and determining how the list will look.
This is just a simple list in a row view. However, you can design your list to look very different.
When adding a list to a page, you can add the tasks linked to a model through a foreign key. This means you can show a group of tasks for a particular series of events, for example, an onboarding journey.
You can configure list blocks to show the user's avatar, name, and initials for the user who added the content. In this image you can see one record was added by the signed-in user but the other two were added by workflow.
These three items are available when setting up a list.
Owner - Name
Owner - Avatar
Owner - Initials
