Field with chart

Edited

Is there any way to add a table to a field?
I want the user to reach the field and fill it according to a table
I am also attaching a picture to illustrate how the table should be structured.
Thank you allCapture.JPG

Hi @Omri Zeman add the table to the default value of the field using wiki formatting, and set the field to use a wiki renderer. Here's an example table.

||Heading 1||Heading 2||
|Col A1|Col A2|

Hey wiki formatting is like a extend that I need to buy or download?

Nope it's built-in to Jira, follow these steps to do what I outlined.

Add table to default value of field

  1. Settings --> Issues
  2. Fields --> Custom fields
  3. Find the field --> Options button --> Contexts and default value --> Edit Default Value
  4. Add the table to the default value --> Set Default

Use the following to add the table as the default value. Note: Blank cells are created by using a "space". Without a space the cell will simply not be created, which will cause your table to be misaligned.

|| ||Baseline||Updated Plan||Actual||
|Project start| | | |
|Approve Plan| | | |
|Dev End| | | |
|QA End| | | |
|Customer testing| | | |
|Rollout| | | |
|Implementation| | | |

Set the field to use the Wiki Style Renderer

  1. Settings --> Issues
  2. Fields --> Field configurations
  3. Find the field configuration --> Configure
  4. Find the field --> Renderers
  5. Change the Active Renderer from "Default Text Renderer" to "Wiki Style Renderer"

This screenshot shows adding the table to a comment which use the wiki style renderer.

Hi @Omri Zeman I'm not certain it's possible to create a table with 2 header rows where the top is a merged cell. At least I'm not aware of how to do it, and from my testing I wasn't able to do it. The following is as close as I was able to get. 

||Model|| || || || ||DB|| || || ||
||Model||Sheet||Table||Field Name In UI||Requested Logic to Dev||Field Desc||DB Table Name||DB Field Name||Remarks||
| | | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | | |

The preview of that looks like this:

In my opinion, you could probably get rid of the top header row, as the column headers seem descriptive enough.

If you've found my answer helpful please mark it as accepted.
