Tables is a way to organize your JIRA issue data that is both dynamic and easy to understand. The table structure will increase the clarity and functionality of your issues, while being easily configured and edited. Once installed, you can choose the Tables field when adding a custom field, configure your new table by directly modifying a preview table, and you’re set. Go from disorganized to structured clarity in minutes.

Why use Tables?
If your JIRA issues require repeated sets of information to be inputted, a table structure can collect and organize that information in a way that no other custom field can. Tables will allow your users to input and view the issue information in a very natural way.
Room for Growth
Whether it’s contacts, parts information, releases affected, or anything else, there are just some pieces of information that can have many instances. Tables give you a dynamic custom field that grows with your data.
A text field would work just fine if you wanted to capture a lot of information without considering the content. But for JIRA tickets that need to have every piece of information defined and formatted, Tables can be configured to your exact specifications.
How does Tables work?
At is core, Tables works like any other custom field. Instead of a text area or dropdown selection, you will see a table outline. And because it is a custom field, it can be in some screens but not others, in certain projects, and configured exactly how you want it. Tables will store the user provided data in the existing JIRA database tables – not in its own tables – which means that the native XML JIRA backup process will work perfectly with Tables.
