    Hi Darcy, welcome to the forums 😊. I'm a big user of description fields and personally love this request! In terms of adding a columns, columns and rows are automatically added based on where information is in the table.

    I agree with this request. Adding Bold, Italics, Underline, Row color, text color would be very nice.

    This is an important function to have as any tables inserted in the Description of a Task are virtually static. There needs to be an option to track items in the table with color, bold, etc. for a task.

    Hello, We are also very interested. We use the table in our Siemens projects very strong but the function in the table are far too small

    Hi,

    Also very interested to be able to edit styles, formats including colours etc.

    (Rather than doing this in excel, attaching, downloading, editing, re-uploading, etc.)

    Description are potentially requirements, clear and user friendly requirements are linked to each task's success!

    Regards,

    Hi, 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 👍

    Hi Lisa, I was searching the forums on how to edit a table in Wrike, and came across this thread, and was excited to see that just as recently as last week you posted that tables can now be edited in Wrike.  However, when I "hover" over my cells in my table, there is no option with three dots to add rows, or columns or anything?

    @Laura  Hey, thank you for reaching out 🙂 As it says on our Help Center, 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. If that's not the case, please let me know and I'll raise a Support ticket for you 🙌

    @Lisa  Hi, my account was definitely created before August 24, 2018.  So can you raise a support ticket for me, I really need this feature, and would love to start using it right away, thanks!  Laura.

    @Laura The Updated Description field is available to newer accounts created after August 24, 2018, but it will be rolled out to older accounts shortly 🙌

    The actual solution is similar but partialy the OneNote implementation:  adding new row and column at the end of the table using tab or enter.  It works well.

    The selection of the bottom-right dot to drag and copy information like in Excel is to keep.

     

    Still I totally agree with Darcy that the capability to insert before and between row and column is required.
