Custom type

If you want to create a more broad Reading List with several entities inside like Books and Articles at the same time, we propose to for that.


It is convenient to create templates for each view and object type. For example, a template for Books includes Author, Rating, andPages. Whereas a template for Blog posts or Articles includes the URL, Topic and other additional information. Using templates with multiple views and filters is the fastest way to add new information without opening pages.
