Table - Grouped rows - header doesn't stay on page?

Is there a way to have, for a Table with a large amount of data in it (i.e. more than can be seen on one “screen”), the Table’s header row stay on the page as you scroll through the data?

Maybe once you’ve reached the bottom of the table and the data scrolls off, the header row could disappear until you scroll back up and hit the bottom of the Table again?

EDIT:
OK, perhaps it’s lack of morning coffee, but I’m sure this has been something I noticed before this morning…

Now, when I went back to working with my doc and happened across the Section that had the Table I was referring to, I noticed that the header row does float at the top of the screen until I scroll off.

slurp more caffeine perhaps…

EDIT 2:
Seems the issue is with a Table with two Groups applied. The header row no longer floats at the top of the page as you scroll down the Table.

@Nathaniel_Thompson or @evan - any thoughts on this? is it a bug?

Apologies if you’re not the right guys to ping on this, but I’ve hit it more than once in my Doc and would really love to see some comment on this and maybe even a “fix” if you feel it’s appropriate (I do! :slight_smile:)

Thanks!

Hey @Thomas_Robbs - so sorry for the delay getting back to you!

You actually identified the issue in your original post, which is something we’ve logged as a bug internally - column headers currently do not pin when you have a grouped table. Appreciate your patience as we stack the work to get that fixed, but in the meantime you should be able to see those headers pin for any tables that aren’t grouped.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Evan

Thanks @evan! Glad to know it’s not user error. :slight_smile:

Glad I am not alone. Just started using coda, and couldn’t figure why it was doing that. Hope a fix comes soon, as I have multiple people accessing the document.

Any update on this? I am still facing this issue- headers are sticky when not grouping a table, but aren’t when I do group. This is the #1 request I’m hearing from the users on my team, since we’ve got a very large table that requires a lot of scrolling to go check which column they’re in.

Edit: to be more specific, I’m grouping by one column & not sorting, though increasing the group count and adding sort does nothing.

+1 on this, the grouping feature is close to being unusable on large tables because of this

@Thomas_Robbs , I assume marking the post by @mallika as a solution was a mistake? Perhaps you might undo that so we can track this bug better? I don’t believe it actually is solved (it’s definitely not for my team).

On the contrary @Ian_Houser, as @mallika seems to be the community’s conduit to the team, she represents the current solution to this problem. :slight_smile:

@evan could steal that from her though! :popcorn:

I’m wondering if this issue is being tracked by the coda team internally. I’m happy if it is. I wondered if it got lost or de-prioritized because it is marked as having a solution (though there is no solution.)

Dear @mallika,

Are you able to update this post by taking away “solution”, thank you :rose:

It would be great to double check if this is still in the log file of the appropriate team

It is on our backlog and I have reminded the team about it again. We just have a large backlog to burn through.
