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.

Hi all (cc @NCO ), I'm happy to announce that this feature is in beta, with 50% of customer portals currently ungated. Feel free to send me a message with your portal ID if you are not seeing the resizable columns on your Contacts, Companies, Deals, and Tickets tables!

Hi @NCO,

 

I appreciate you sending along the feedback! This is something that we're aware of and unfortunately weren't able to change this new version, but we definitely understand how this can be confusing and are continuing to look into alternative designs. I shared your specific example with the team - thanks for sharing that!

 

Best,

Jenna

We hope to see the new header in other parts of the app in the future! I don't have a timeline for when you'll start to see the header elsewhere unfortunately, as it depends on when the teams that build the other tools are able to adopt it, but we are hopeful that other parts of the app will be updated as well.

Hi @NCO , no problem! Will do!

Hi @NCO ,

 

We apologize for the delay in getting this out! We're doing a significant amount of internal testing for this feature and want to make sure that it's fully ready to go before we have our customers using it.

 

The new table will have a sticky header row. We haven't added plans for the first column to be freezable, but I'll pass along that feedback to the team.

 

I will reach back out here as soon as I have any updates or when we open up the beta!

Hi @NCO ,

 

I wish I could provide a date, but we don't have an exact one to offer right now. In terms of timeline, it's the top priority of the team building out this feature, so we will open it up to you and our other users as soon as we feel ready! We want to get it out in good shape as much as you want to get access to it Smiley Happy

 

Best,

Jenna

Hi everyone, we're getting close to releasing a new table for the contact/company/deal/ticket index page, which will include adjustable columns. We hope to open up a beta for this in the next few weeks. I'll reach back out here once the beta is open so you all can get access!

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.
