Feature Request: "Live Embedding" of individual fields/values

Kevin Davis May 6, 2024

I was excited about this feature hoping that it would allow me to embed "live values" from a database in other documents. It sort of does, but the experience for doing that is too noisy to be useful for this use case.

Consider this (contrived, simplified) example; a database with two columns:

  • Application Name (text)
  • Development Status (status)

Now in some of the application's specific documentation I want to embed the status only from this database. This "works" but is homely to say the least:

I'd like to just insert the status badge (or even the text of it) wherever I want, without the database wrapper. You could call it out as "live data from the database" by coming to a design decision like (for example) live data has a dotted underline and/or a lightning bolt icon next to it or something like that.

I don't always want to insert the whole database row into the sub-page, which is the other option. I want to use the values like a database and reference them wherever I want - so I could render it something like this [mocked] in regular paragraph text:

Again this example is simplified/contrived but demonstrates the behavior I'd love to see to make the database values useful across many different types of documents

I'm finding the database wrapper makes the functionality not usable.
