Presents data in combination of columns and rows.


Tables are great at presenting a clear structure that can be scanned to get just the right information. A table can organise, and present data that is relative, and it can enable user interactions like selecting, adding, deleting, and reordering.

When to use

  • When you want to group related data in a scannable manner.
  • To present data that has a repetive structure.


Anatomy of table
  1. Column header: Used for indicating the column heading. Optionally paired with actions like checkbox or arrange arrows.
  2. Leading cell: Used for showing the first (i.e. leading) column in the table. Usually placed in the leftmost (i.e. first) column.
  3. General content cell: Comes with a variety of content types and used for all other cells in the table.

Best Practices

  1. Let people edit a table when it makes sense.
  2. Provide appropriate feedback when people select a row or column. Shipfaster provides all necessary states such as rest, active, and hover.
  3. Choose a row style that fits the information you need to display.
