Sometimes you may want to focus on entries in certain columns or groups of columns in Jotform Tables. To eliminate the need to scroll through your table, Jotform Tables has a freeze column(s) feature that locks the columns you want to view to the left side of your screen. These frozen columns will stay visible when you scroll horizontally.
Freezing a column is very straightforward. Click the column settings (arrow icon), and then click the Freeze column option.
The column is now frozen. A pin icon (figure 1) appears next to the column title. You’ll also see the solid vertical line (figure 2) that separates the frozen column from non-frozen columns.
In Jotform Tables, you can also freeze multiple columns at once.
To freeze columns in a series (i.e., columns that are next to each other), click the first column you want to freeze while holding down the shift key on your keyboard, and then click on the last column you want to freeze. Next, click the column settings (arrow icon) on any of the chosen columns, and select the Freeze columns option. Here’s a short video clip showing this method:
Assuming you’ve already frozen one column and you want to freeze the columns next to it, you can hover over the vertical solid line, click and hold that line, and drag it to the next column. Please watch the following short clip:
To freeze selected columns (i.e., columns that aren’t next to each other), click the first column, hold down the control key on your keyboard, and click the other columns you want to freeze. Next, click the column settings (arrow icon) on any of the chosen columns, and click the Freeze columns option.
To unfreeze a single column, follow the same steps by clicking the column settings (arrow icon) and then the Unfreeze column option.
To unfreeze a group of columns, follow the same steps — selecting the columns by clicking the first column, holding the shift or control key on your keyboard, clicking the column settings (arrow icon), and clicking the Unfreeze columns option.
When you unfreeze a column or group of columns, the table will return to the original column order.
