Creating dynamic tables

Use dynamic tables to sort values, specify data types to display in columns, and set required cells. You can use dynamic tables as-is or embed them in pages.

There are multiple ways to create a table:

Set the table address manually

To create a new table:

  1. Click Create in the upper panel.

  2. Choose Table.

  3. Enter your page title.

  4. Set your page address.

    The page address is chosen relative to your personal cluster. If you want to specify the address relative to the Wiki homepage, delete the ~/ symbols at the start of the line.

    Tip. You can even enter URLs for pages that do not exist. For example, you can host a page at ~/foo/bar, even if there is no page at ~/foo.
  5. Click Create.

  6. Fill in the table:

    Create columns
    1. Click + in the upper-right corner of the table.

    2. Configure the column settings:

      • Enter the column heading in the top field.

      • Choose a data type to display in the column from the drop-down list.

      • Specify the column's width in pixels or as a percentage of the table's width.

      • If you want the cells to be required for filling in, choose the Required option.

      • Enable the Mark as done option for columns with the Checkbox data type. If the option is enabled, all rows selected with the checkbox will turn gray.

    3. Choose Add.

    Create rows

    To create a new row, select Add row at the bottom of the table.

    Fill in the cells

    Select a cell and enter your text. Use Markdown for text formatting. To switch to a new row inside the cell, press Shift+Enter.

  7. Save your changes (Finish).

Creating cluster subpages

You can create a table right from the desired cluster:

  1. Go to the cluster.

  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, select ... → Create subpage.

  3. Choose Table.

  4. Enter your title.

    The Address field is filled in automatically. You can edit the address if necessary. The !/ symbols at the start of the row indicate that the address is relative to the current cluster.

  5. Click Create.
