Community Members,

You can now add a description to the header of any column in your sheet.

These descriptions provide an alternative place for column-specific instructions and information—help your team use your sheet more effectively while freeing up the top rows for work.

Column descriptions support links and up to 250 characters. See the Use the Best Column Type for Your Data help article for more information

    Wow!  This is a really nice little addition to the system.

    Now I just have to go back and label a few hundred columns smileycryingsmiley

    Love this feature!

  • Great. Now if we could just get this functionality to appear in a report.... thoughts on this, Shaine?

  • I agree with Heather, do we have a status on if and when the column description will also show in a report on a dashboard? Our consuming users do not have access to the sheet, just the dashboard and it is these users who will benefit the most from the column description.

  • Can a column description show in a report or is there a way to to this at all please??
