Jotform Tables allows you to add new columns whenever you need to. You can add basic, formula, button, or connection column types. Organize columns as you see fit. You can duplicate, reorder, and toggle columns. You can also sort data alphabetically or numerically as well as group them by answers.
Here’s how to create a column in Jotform Tables:
You can switch categories — Basic, Formula, Buttons, or Connection — by clicking on the tab of the same name at the top.
There are several ways to organize your columns. Depending on what you need, you can organize your columns using the Columns button, the column menu, or by interacting directly with the columns.
The Columns button can be found in the upper right corner. Click on it to open the Show/Hide Columns window.
From there, you can do the following:
You can also manage the columns from the tab menu by clicking on the tab’s vertical ellipsis icon and selecting Manage columns.
Unlike the Columns button, the tab menu’s Manage columns option is limited to rearranging and showing or hiding columns.
To open the column menu, click on the column headings down angle icon.
The column menu has a variety of options you can perform like freezing, duplicating, renaming the column, and more. Some options are unique to certain column types like the Group by option.
There are also some actions you can perform by interacting with the column headings. For example, double-clicking on the column heading’s text allows you to rename the column.
You can also rearrange columns by dragging and dropping the column headings.
