    UPDATE (June 11, 2019): The input table field has a new type called Multi-Type Columns. You will now be able to set different type for each column such as Single Choice, Checkbox, Textbox, and Dropdown.

     
     
    There are many features when you use the Multi-Type Columns:

    1. You can change the row and column names.
     
     
    Additionally, you can set the row and column names by clicking on the gear icon.
     
     
    2. You can add rows and any type of columns by clicking on the add row and add column.
     
    3. You can set options for dropdown type by clicking on the downwards arrow.
     
     
    Enter your dropdown options.Click on the Save Changes.
     
     
    4. You can delete the rows by clicking on the cross (X) that exists for each row and you can delete the rows by clicking on the downwards arrow that exists for each column.
     
     
    5. You can change the types of each column to Single Choice, Checkbox, Textbox, and Dropdown by clicking on the downwards arrow that exists for each column.

    Currently it is not possible to have mixed input type when using the Input Table field. So you can only have only either a Checkbox or a Number input type in the Input Table field.

    What you can use alternatively is the Configurable List widget.
