Adjustable Columns in Contact & Company Views

PLEASE, PLEASE make the column width adjustable like Excel for example.  Salesforce has this capability which allows for seeing many more data points on the Contact Record.  Currently, I can see about 4-5 columns on a 24" monitor before I have to scroll over on the bottom of the page.

Hello,

it'll be nice to have the columns width extendable (like in Excel for ex.) if you don't need to see the whole text in it. I mean, there is place for only 4 or so columns on a 24" monitor.

 I agree!!!! This would be a great little thing to fix that would make a HUGE difference.

Having a column width that is adjustable would help immensely. "Website visits" and "Unique Page visits" result in extremely wide columns for a number that is typically 1 or 2 digits, meaning I can't see a lot more of the contact's info on one screen.

This is so true - currently some columns are so wide having little information and limiting us from seeing what's really important.

At least being able to hover over the content to see a preview of it would save the time of having to click in and leave the page

The hover works, but we need the ability to make text heavy fields wider, so you can quickly glance at a view and get the full picture.

Ideally, you should be able to drag the width of the column and maybe even allow it to break into multiple lines.

 

Example: We're using a "next steps" field for deals with a written description of the deal and what's next. The current view only makes the first 4-5 words visible. It's very slow to have to hover and wait for the full description to appear.

This is also needed in the sequence list view. Hoover does not work in this view so you need to click on name or compay so see full length.

Would really appreciate the ability to expand contact and company property columns. drag and slide, etc. I have noticed that there is an auto-resize after selecting a certain amount of contacts...but still not optimal.

It would be great to be able to reduce the width of some of the columns in Contacts and Companies. This would allow more information to be displayed on the screen without having to scroll. It would help to be able to quickly visualise the most important information about Contacts and Companies.
