I am trying to make a table that is sortable/filterable. Is there anyway to do so? Or make it dynamic so that theres a search and based on what is typed, the results show?
You didn't mention what version of Jive you are on (cloud, hosted, on-prem) but in the cloud version a feature was a added a couple of releases ago where you can sort now in tables. I don't remember exactly when it was added...it may have been long enough ago that it is in Jive 7...but certainly nothing earlier than that. Jive should probably add something visual as you don't really know that you can sort until you click on a header. So I created a quick table below to demonstrate. The first screen shot is right after publishing. I then click the header1 and in the second screen shot and it sorts by column 1 and shows the visual arrow clue in the red circle. You can click it again to toggle ascending and descending. It is just a simple text sort. So certainly you can't even whisper Excel as a comparison and I don't believe there are any other features such as what you are looking for on the Jive native table (filter, group, I can't even get myself to write pivot table here).
But you can sort the columns as an end user. Also note that the sorting is a post-publish feature. Meaning, an end user can play with the sorting but you can't save it in a "state of sorting" that you want. Sorting is not something you can do when editing the document. So maybe some future features to come for Jive.
I hope that helps
ah, one thought after I hit publish here is the version. In the upper right of the document you notice the version and not ever user knows how handy that is with a Jive native doc to leverage that to see what has changed. So in the below example I'm comparing version 3 to version 2 to see Red changed to Black. This comes in very handy when you are using a Jive table to track things. If the table is really long you get the update that something changed. Clicking on the version allows you to see what exactly has changed which is very cool. ok, now I'm done

Thank you so much for this. I did notice this as well but i was hoping to go more detailed filtering. Like be able to filter only "Red" under header 1 or just all "not awesome" in header 3.Might not be a way to easily do so from what I am seeing.
Have you seen this?

Thanks Warren. Just yesterday one of our team members, Carol Nelson published that same technique on our intranet so I was coming back here to see if we can add that to the answer. Carol, you had a pretty conscise post on this. If you have a moment to copy that out here on the JC. You had some pretty simple steps to do this.
