A Gallery View changes form entries into a grid or card layout, displaying information in a gallery-style format. It makes your forms look better and gives a better experience for people using the data.

In a Gallery, entries are displayed as cards or tiles. This allows users to easily browse through them and view a preview.

This feature is helpful for content with many images, like product catalogs or portfolios, where visuals enhance the data. Users can scroll through, making it a dynamic and interactive way to consume information.
