Configure a Table

A table can have any number of columns. Filters can be used to limit the data displayed in the table. For an embedded table example, see the bottom of this article. To configure a table, follow these basic steps:

1) Name the Table

First, give the table a unique name. Descriptive is best, because you may end up with variations of the same data in different tables.

Table - Name

After naming the table, start configuring your columns.

2) Add Columns to the Table

Tables are pretty simple from a configuration perspective. As soon as you add columns, you'll begin to see the table build.

In addition to adding columns, you may want to filter down the data in the table.

3) Filter the Table Data (Optional)

Filters can pair down the data displayed for the end consumer. Use one or more to hone in on the right visual.

After getting the data paired down to the appropriate records, make sure that your table is sorted logically.

4) Sort the Table (Optional)

Use sort options to ensure the order of records will make sense to the consumer.
