Solution to deal with huge data table

Good Day,

Is there any solutions or idea to solve long and wide table?
The table is not for showing record but to insert record.
The table is about to have more than 30 columns and every single column need to fill in data.

Thank you.

Hi Gwen,

I'd say all it should take is setting the width of the table itself explicitly?

Hope this helps!

Hi Jorge,

Thanks for the help!
But in terms of user experience, it wouldn't be a good solution as user need to scroll through long horizontal table to fill in data.

Is there any alternative method to solve this?

Much appreciate! Thank you !


Hi Gwen,

If you want to avoid the long horizontal scroll, then you must choose the tab for displaying the column of same table and you can categorize them in tab and display them with-out scroll. Also you can check the below link as well.

Hope this helps.

Gwen,

If the goal is to insert data, then a Form (or several) is probably the best way to do it in terms of user experience.

You can organize and guide the filling of the data using one of:

You can guarantee that all data is filled by setting every input as mandatory and enabling the use (and checking the outcome) of built-in validations.

Hope this helps!

Hi Jorge and Manish,

Thanks to both of you! I will take into consideration :))

Many thanks.

Cheers,
Gwen.
