What's a rule of thumb for when use rows and columns (i.e. tables) versus single or multi-line "blobs" to display data? I swear I'm right on the fence for several screens of a complex administration interface for a database.
My own primary differentiator tends to be sorting/filtering. If you are going to do that by more than few variables, it's probably a table. I should also mention I think it is my duty to explore all other options before settling on a table because they tend to be the default go-to in engineering-heavy products.
Thanks! This is my first post.
