Use tables

Who can use this feature?

🔐 Only workspace editors can edit tables.

⭐️ Available on free and paid plans.

Workspace editors can add tables to items. Tables allow you to capture information in a structured way. A table in the item editor looks like this:

Column 1

Column 2

Column 3

Cell 1

Cell 2

Cell 3

Cell 4

Cell 5

Cell 6

Table cells can contain text, lists, quotes, code blocks, images, files, and other content. To add a list, code block, or a quote inside a cell, use markdown commands or highlight the text and use the tooltip menu.
