The Table Grid Editor is a Jira add-on allowing you to add spreadsheet-like tables and lists in an issue.
This add-on can be used for a wide variety of use cases. Like for example, lists, surveys, onboarding activities, component/version tracking, quote-line items, employee history and much more.
Here you can see an example of a table grid added to an issue in Jira Cloud:

For 4 years straight we have been receiving massive positive response for this app on how it really improves Jira functionality. Thank you if you were one of them by the way!
But you could only get the app for Jira Server. That’s no longer the case. 6 months ago we’ve released Table Grid Editor for Jira Cloud and made lots of UI-improvements in the process.
But since our Table Grid Editor for cloud is still pretty new, the amount of available features was still lacking. That’s why we’re working day and night to make our cloud version as feature-rich as the Table Grid Editor for server. And I can honestly say, that with this latest release we have taken another big step towards achieving this goal.
Here are the latest features we’ve added with the last update of the Table Grid Editor for Jira Cloud 1.7.
1. JQL Optimization
Assume you are using the grid for tracking expense notes, and you want to locate all issues with unapproved expenses. With the improved JQL functionality delivered in this release, finding these issues is straightforward.
We’ve simplified the JQL functionality and made it more user friendly.
We have also improved the search functionality by adding the Indexing of the existing grid data.
For example: A user had a grid configuration and is already adding some grid information to 5 issues. Let’s say the user wants to find the issue based on the data in the grid using the Jira JQL search.
For this, he’ll create a Table Grid Cloud JQL search configuration. Before the indexing feature release he could find the issues only after editing or adding the information to the grid.
Now he is able to perform indexing to add the JQL information to the already existing issue with the grid.
So now it does not matter when the JQL configuration was created. The users will be able to find all the issues that match the JQL configuration.
2. Aggregation of Calculated Value
With this release you will also be able to add the aggregation functions to the formula column type.
A user created 3 columns:
– Column ‘Hour rate’ (integer) and ‘Worked hours’ (number)
– Column ‘Salary’ has a formula column type that calculates first and the second column values
You will be able to get the summary result of all values in column Salary in the very bottom of the column.
3. Additional Features Table Grid Editor for Jira Cloud
The above features were the key updates for our latest release of the Table Grid Editor for Jira Cloud 1.7.
However, in case you missed it, here is another overview of some other important features released in our previous updates.
A high variety of rich column types
Intuitively calculate & aggregate columns
Intuitive spreadsheet interface with keyboard support
Rearrangement options for tables, columns and rows
Embeds for Jira and Jira Service Desk
