    Hi Sandra, thanks for sharing your feedback here! It's possible to create tables larger than 2x2. Rows are automatically added once the previous ones have been filled in. Check out or Description Field article to learn more about editing tables. Does this help?

    This feature seems to be broken as I can not even ad text to any of the fields once I insert a table. The cursor hops right out of the table and display text below the table. Very annoying.

    Hi Mindy, thanks for your post! I can see our Support Team is helping you with this by email and they've recommended the following two steps to delete app cache in Firefox - which is likely causing this issue you're experiencing.
     
    If anyone else here is experiencing this issue please try the below steps, or post here so we can help troubleshoot further. Thanks!
     
    For Firefox
    1. Paste about:preferences#advanced into the URL bar, then go to Network tab.
    1. Choose Wrike in the list of Offline Web Content and remove it. Launch Wrike in a new tab.
     
    For Chrome:
    Please paste Chrome://appcache-internals/ in your address bar, and then delete all entries that include Wrike in their names.
     
    For Internet Explorer:
    Go to Tools > Internet Options > Settings (in Browsing history section) > Caches and databases tab; remove all entries that include Wrike in its name and restart the browser.
     
    For Edge:
    Click on the three-dot menu in the top right corner of the screen, click on "Settings" and then under "Clear browsing data" click the "Choose what to clear" button. Check the box for "Cached data and files" press Clear.
     
    For Safari:
    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab > Show Develop menu in the menu bar. In the Develop menu, check "Disable Caches" and then restart the browser. Enable cache to resume normal operation.

    I am having the exact same experience as Mindy. I tried Stephen's suggestions for both Firefox and Chrome. With Firefox, I do not see a Network tab -- only Network Proxy which doesn't contain any Offline Web Content info. The path suggested for Chrome just pulls up a blank page. Any further suggestions? Thanks.

    @Daniel, removing columns and rows are not available, they're created as you create text, with a blank one automatically generated for you to enter text if needed. The description text is something our Product Team are looking at enhancing in the future!

    @Leslie, if those links don't work we may need to have a closer look. I've raised a ticket with the Support Team to help with this ๐Ÿ‘

    Hey Stephen, some people of our company have the same issue with Firefox. The link suggested for Firefox doesn't work because Firefox changed its appearance. Unfortunately I can't find any info regarding where the feature would be in the new Firefox layout.

    Another victim here.

    I use the Windows desktop app.

    Today, I looked at a task that was created by forwarding an email to Wrike. Apparently the email originator (Google) had formatted the email with HTML tables. When those arrived in a task Description they were a mess. The whole thing was unreadable. This is not the first time I've had this issue arise in this way.

    But worse than that - there was no way to fix the problem!

    I tried to 'remove format' so it would be plain text - no option.

    I tried to select the table so I could delete it and paste in the text manually - it can't be selected!

    This was all incredibly frustrating and I'm a techie... can only imagine how someone non-technical might react.

    @Jamie, this email forwarding to tables is a known issue and our team is looking into it. It was raised over here by Ben and was escalated. I will update that thread when I the issue is resolved so feel free to follow that post for updates and apologies for the inconvenience it's caused.

    There really should be a way to remove a column! I created a set of columns for a particular folder, and occasionally one of them will randomly get applied to another folder - which is then irreversible. This causes confusion for team members.

    Hi Shannan!

    I'd like to hear a little more about how you're using tables, and hear what exactly is happening when they're applied to another folder in a little more detail. Certainly, random stuff shouldn't be happening ๐Ÿ˜Š

    It is very frustrating not to be able to delete tables, rows or columns. if you accidentally paste something from excel or created a table you cannot delete it nor undo it. 

    Honestly maybe is better not to have this feature until is usable than create a hassle for the users.

    Experiencing this issue as well, I agree with Cosmin, don't have the option for tables if you can't remove them.

    I have not found any way to avoid empty/extra columns and rows when creating and populating a new table. See the attached animated GIF showing the problem.I'm using the desktop app, and I tried moving between cells both with the Enter key and with arrow keys -- both result in the same behavior.

    Is there any update on when Wrike will provide the ability to delete a table, at least?

    This Product Feedback thread is over a year old now!

    (Edited )

    Since it appears that the Wrike team has jumped ship on this issue and stopped responding to the thread I thought I would share my experience. I was able to delete a table by placing my cursor on the line below the table and hitting backspace. This will deleted the entire table.

    If you delete the text in a row the row will disappear (there will always be one empty row at the bottom to add text to so you can create additional rows) but this is not the case for columns, it won't shrink to less than 5 columns. For example, if you have a 6 column table and delete text out of 3, only 1 column will disappear leaving you with 5 columns.

    Hope this helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello Stephen/Wrike, 

    Where are we on this features, we needed rich embedded feature that so many people like Asana and others readily offer. Can you update the group? 

    We use desktop tool as well, and experience the same issue with empty row/column creation that Mindy mentioned.

    Checking in for an update. Would be great for Tables to be able to Bold/underline words, insert rows/columns between, etc. Even some basic functions would be a great start. 

    And the converting of emails to tables is a great nuisance, is there an update on that as well?

    I couldn't add a table in the description box by clicking the table icon on the toolbar hidden by css. I would like to know how. Within the terms of trial for personal use.

    Thank you in advance.

    @Lisa Bogdanova - I've just been pointed here by Stephen from your team in response to https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360025921834-Comment-section-formatting-It-would-be-great-if-we-could-format-our-comments-using-the-same-format-bar-we-use-in-the-description-section- where I have requested the ability to have tables in Comments.

    Any news on when this will be available, as the product we are moving from (DoneDone) had this through its markdown support, and losing this functionality is a bit problem?

    Thanks

    Hi everyone, I have good news - you can now create a new table or copy a table from any place outside of Wrike and paste it into the description field. Details on how to do it are on our Help Center. Please note that the updated description field is currently being rolled out and not yet available on all accounts. All accounts created before 08/24/18 have the current live editor. Let me know if you have any questions ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Our 350+ company has had an account long before 8/24/18 but we'd love to get this new description field. Any idea when we can have some of this basic functionality??
