Enabling additional hierarchical table settings

Updated on April 5, 2022

Enable additional settings in the Hierarchical table layout for more customization options.

Hierarchical table layouts that you create use optimized code by default. Optimized code improves client-side performance, especially on mobile devices, but does not support all table configurations. To access all settings, revert the Hierarchical table to the previous markup.

  1. In the Section form, select the table that you want to edit, and then click the View properties icon.

  2. In the Layout properties window, for the Use legacy markup parameter, select the Allow check box.

  3. Click Submit.

  • Creating a hierarchical table layout

    Help users access and compare nested data with a Hierarchical table layout. Hierarchical table layouts support expandable rows, which can provide you with a more compact view of your data.

  • Table layout - Operations tab

    Click the View properties icon in the Table header to display the Properties panel, and then select the Operations tab.

  • Grid layout - Presentation tab

    Click the View properties icon in the Grid Repeat Layout header to display the Properties panel, and then select the Presentation tab.

  • Configuring table activities

    Improve the user experience by creating optional activities that respond to changes in a Table layout. For example, if a user reorders a list of tasks to display the most important assignments first, you can use activities to propagate the changes back to the data source and save their preferred setting.

  • Configuring drag-and-drop functionality for tables

    Configure tables and optimized tables so that users can reorder individual rows to adjust the content of tables.

  • Optimizing table code

    Optimize the code of a table to improve the client-side performance and enable customization of a toolbar for that table.
