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 ,

 

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 everyone, this is not yet in beta. I will post again here and update the status once it is.

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!

What I don't quite get, why is the shown content of a column in any table view limited to 200 Pixels and then cut off?

Inside every table cell <td> there is a <span> with CSS rules:

max-length: 200px;

width: unset;

 

Removing those simply makes the clipped content visible again and I don't need to hover? It has no negative effect removing this limitation, so why is it in place?

Hi @jsg121,

 

Thanks so much for the heads up - I actually came across this update yesterday and it's most definitely a step in the right direction!

There is still one huge limitation that was not addressed though: the header row (which is now frozen) is covered by the edit toolbox when any of the company/contacts/deal records are selected.

As an example, see below for the visibility when the record is selected vs. when the record is not selected:

8.9.PNG8.9 1.PNG

 

The frozen header is a huge help for a lot of usages but ensuring it remains visible when records are selected is vital. I happen not to have any date properties shown, although if you have 4 different dates columns beside one another and click the checkbox next to any of them, differentiating between them is a nightmare.

 

It would be amazing if you were able to pass this feedback along to the product team for reference.

Appreciate your keeping us in the loop and your continued help here.

 

Best,

Noah

Thanks @jsg121!

Any step in the right direction is awesome although I imagine that many folks within the Hubspot community feel that the limitations still present are not ideal.

On a somewhat related note, the adjustable and frozen headers have been implemented on the main company, contact, deal pages although not anywhere else (ie. lists, tasks, reports, etc.). Any idea as to whether the team anticipates rolling that same update out to the rest of the platform at any point soon?

 

As always, appreciate your help here!

So now if I've got my Contacts pulled up, displaying 25 per page in Google Chrome at 100% zoom, I can see 11 contacts at a time. If I want to see the remaining 14, the vertical scroll bar won't display until I scroll all the way to the right. This is really inconvenient for those of us who have 10+ columns added to the Contacts window.

Surprise! It is done!! Hurray Hubspot! Check if it is rolled out for you - hover over line between columns and drag!

 

BTW, you were always able to make the Field name very short, and the data it contains short, and it will take up minimal space.
