To add a table to your project, you'll first need to add a content box.

Best practice advice: You'll see the ability to add a table on the Project Description editor as well, but we strongly advise against doing this. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. The description area is meant to be a short synopsis of what the project is about, and generally shouldn't contain images, tables or other detailed information. This description will be displayed on the Public Portal for your organization, and will be truncated (...) if it is too lengthy – or more than about 2 sentences long.

Tip: The Description is a great place to add any custom language links you've created to allow non-English speakers to easily access the survey in their native language, if a direct link is not provided.

You'll find the Add Content button under the Page & Survey tab on your project dashboard:

A Content box will appear.

Click inside the type area, and the Content (WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get) editor will appear. Click the table icon:

A Table Properties module will appear. Here you can enter the basic details of the table, like the number of rows and columns, and the dimensions (width/height). If you do not enter a height value, the table height will be determined by the default value of the row height.

Note that these values can be changed later by right-clicking on the table in the designer and selecting "Table Properties" from the dropdown menu that appears:

Bear in mind that the width/height values can be relative percentage values rather than static pixel values - i.e., a percentage of the screen width or height. This is very useful when designing a table for view on mobile devices with different screen resolutions.

To improve spacing in the table, consider adjusting cell padding.
