Keep Massive Sets of Data in Order with New Tables in Task Descriptions

Whether you need to create a conference guest list with all names and contacts, or some kind of a stats digest to share with your colleagues, there is probably no better way to put down this data than in a table format. If you feel this to be a familiar situation, we bet you’ll like our new feature. Now, as an alternative to attaching spreadsheets, you can create and edit tables right in the task descriptions. Whether you need to create a conference guest list with all names and contacts, or some kind of a stats digest to share with your colleagues, there is probably no better way to put down this data than in a table format. If you feel this to be a familiar situation, we bet you’ll like our new feature. Now, as an alternative to attaching spreadsheets, you can create and edit tables right in Wrike's task descriptions.

Working with tables in tasks is simple and absolutely intuitive. Just a few details on how it all works:

  • To create a table, click on the icon in the text editor toolbar of a task. 
  • When filling your newly created table with data, press ctrl+enter to move on to the next line in the same cell.
  • You can easily copy one cell or a few cells: Select them, then drag and drop to where you want to paste them.
  • As you put more data in your table, its size is adjusted automatically. When you reach the last row, a new one will be added automatically. This is particularly handy if you have a long list. The same will happen with columns.
     

The tables built into Wrike's task descriptions are handy not only for keeping large sets of data in order, but also because they are collaborative. Thanks to Wrike’s Live editor, you can work on tables simultaneously with your teammates in real time. 

Our tables in task descriptions won’t handle advanced math formulas for you, but if you need to keep some complex data neatly organized, that’s the way to go.
