Article summary

In this first tutorial on tables we'll teach you how to create them from scratch in the Tables tab to later show them on your displays. Just like in a spreadsheet or database, you can add named columns and rows which can be easily dragged to change their order, renamed, cloned or removed. 

In our solution the table data are organized in the column types: Text, Image, Number, Date, Time, Date & Time.

Our tables consist of columns and rows as tables usually do but the table data is constrained by the following column types: 

  • Text
  • Image
  • Number
  • Date
  • Time
  • Date & Time

This means that the data assigned to individual table cells will depend on the type of column in which those cells are located.
