Inserting a table

How do I insert a table into a block? The posts I found were archived and didn't match the format that I have. 

 

Help!

Hello @DYCM. Thanks for reaching out to us in the Community! I see that you are using our third-generation editor to create your emails. At this time, this editor does not have the ability to create and insert tables. This is because all of the templates for this particular editor are mobile responsive and inserting tables can actually break the responsiveness. We have a few alternatives to using a table in an email that does not impact readability and I encourage you to review this article.

Re: Inserting a table

Have there been any updates on adding this feature?  Screenshots are a workaround, but not a solution.  Thanks.

Hi @JamesA934,

 

Thanks so much for inquiring about the table functionality in our newest editor. We understand how it might be easier for you to utilize a table rather than insert screenshots. At this time we are still collecting feedback for our programmers about adding this feature and I'm happy to add yours!

Re: Inserting a table

I'm not sure if this will help you but I achieved this: 
table.PNG

I did this by dragging and dropping the block that includes pictures, text and background (the one circled in red):

I then just removed the pictures, added my text and added a different background colour. I duplicated each row of text to build the "table". Unfortunately, I don't think you can add more columns with this method. 

Good luck!

Hi @AmandaS8492

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community about your email. I'm happy to hear you were able to replicate a table with our two-column layout blocks! Being able to create a table in your email is a feature request I would be happy to submit in your account. In the mean time, using your method through layout blocks you would be able to create up to a three-column layout.

Wow, that looks great. Unfortunately, I'm trying to list a table and keep the columns in line.

 

To be exact, I am trying to list a sermon schedule with data, speaker, and title.

Re: Inserting a table

Hello @CalvaryVision,

 

Thank you for your response!

 

The only alternative that I can think of (it is a bit of a workaround) is to create this in another program and take a screenshot to insert the data as an image. This way it will keep all of your information aligned and as a benefit, it will automatically resize to fit mobile devices keeping the same layout.

 

I hope that this helps!

 

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
