How to Add Descriptions to Tabs and Columns in Jotform Tables

June 7, 2022

Jotform Tables makes it easier for the people in your organization to collaborate when managing forms and data. That translates to being productive, as long as the people who have access to your tables understand what they can and can’t do with the form entries. To remedy this issue, we’ve provided a way for you to add a description to the tabs and columns in Jotform Tables.

Let’s start with adding a description to the tab

Click the kebab menu beside the tab title, and then click the Add description option.

tables-add-description

Add your description in the popup window. 

You can format the tab description. The formatting tools are located in the toolbar at the base of the description box. If you want to bold the font, highlight the text and click the B icon. Do the same for the other options. Once you’re done, click the Save button to save the description.

Once you’ve saved the description, the info icon (i) will appear beside the tab title. When collaborators click this icon, they’ll be able to view the tab description.

Follow the same steps to edit the description, but instead of selecting Add description, select Edit description

To add a description to a table column, click the angle down icon next to the column heading, and click the Add description option.

tables-add-column-description

Add your description and click the Save button. The column description is limited to 280 characters. 

Once you’ve saved the description, the info icon will appear next to the column title. In this case, collaborators only need to hover to the icon to view the description.
