Creating Table Views

Creating Table Views give you a quick way of viewing a set of information you need about products. Create different views for marketing content, logistics data, data enrichment, you name it.

Defining attributes 


To create a Table View, you should first define the attributes in your table:

  1. From the product overview click on "Edit columns" to customize your table. 


  2. Under available attributes, select the attributes you want to view in your table.
  3. Under selected attributes click and drag an attribute to change the view order or remove the ones you don't want in your table. 
  4. Click "Save columns". customize-table-view

ℹ️ Note that if you are using Product Families, you will be shown the attributes that are included in the family you have selected. If you wish to see all attributes, click on 'See all ATTRIBUTES' just below the available attributes search bar.


Freezing columns

If you want to make sure that some of your columns stick to your view when moving around your table view, you can freeze up to 3 columns at a time. 



Once you have frozen your columns, these will get separated via a vertical line from the rest of the columns. 



You can change the order of the columns by simply dragging and dropping them just as you know it from an Excel-sheet.

Changing column width 

To make the most out of your table view and slice and dice the data the way you want, you can also adapt the column width to display as much information as possible at one glance.

For this you can simply drag the column width to your liking, just like you know it from an excel sheet. 


💡 To navigate through your Table View you can simply use keyboard shortcuts just like you know it from when using a spreadsheet.
