About the Edit columns popup

Awesome Table Connectors’ Edit columns feature is a powerful tool that you can use to edit your output sheet's layout by choosing the columns you need, editing their names, and configuring a sort order before you run a request.

Overview of the Edit columns popup

The Edit columns popup has two main areas: the Column picker sidebar and the Data table
Column picker sidebarContains the properties from your import. Selecting or deselecting a property in the sidebar allows you to add or remove its corresponding column in the data table.
  • Clicking or hovering over a property in the sidebar highlights the corresponding column or nested columns in the data table.
  • Clicking or hovering over a table cell highlights its corresponding column in the sidebar. If the property is a child and its parent is collapsed, the parent is identified.
Data tableDisplays the columns selected for import.
