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 Create a Type for that.


It is convenient to create templates for each view and object type. E.g. a template for Books will have Author, Rating, Pages etc. Whereas a template for Blog posts or Articles will have 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.
