The table view is very similar to the familiar Excel or Google Docs tables. It is organized by columns and rows. At the top of each column are the headings. 


The difference with Zenkit is that columns, fields, and rows represent tasks. Here is how it all comes together. 



Creating tasks in the table view

Click the "+" icon in the upper left corner to create a new row. 



Alternatively, you can click on any cell in the grey bar that appears at the bottom of the table. Click the Enter key after adding an item to add the next one.


Columns

The column headers are actually custom fields. When you add a new column, you create a new field in your project and can specify how the information in that field should behave. (Custom fields can be created starting with a business plan. Click here to learn about pricing).

Select rows

When you hover over the row numbers on the left, a grey box will appear around the number. Click on it to select the row. The selected rows are blue. If you select multiple rows, you can process them in bulk. This allows you to make changes to multiple tasks at the same time.



Sorting tasks

Sorting is very simple. Click the arrow icons next to the column header to sort in ascending order (A-Z, 1-9) and click again to sort in descending order (Z-A, 9-1). Click a third time to remove the sorting of this column.



Hide fields (columns)

To hide a field (column), click the field name (column header) and then click Hide. 



If you want to show the field again after it has been hidden, click the table icon in the upper right to open the View Options menu. Click Edit next to Table, and then click Visible Columns. Click the toggles of the columns to be shown (green means shown).



Delete fields (columns)

If you want to delete a field (column) from your project, click on the field name (column header) and then select "Delete" from the drop-down menu.



Then confirm that you want to delete the field.

Please note that only user-defined fields can be deleted, as Zenkit Projects needs the predefined fields to edit, for example, Smart Views and other features.



Change column width

Some fields contain a lot of information, so you may need to change the width of your columns in Zenkit to make the content easier to read. To do this, simply click on the separator line just above the column header and drag it to the desired width.



Reorder columns

You can easily adjust the order of your columns by dragging and dropping: Click on a column heading to drag and drop it to where you want it. 



Reordering tables in this way does not affect how other members see the table.
