Ability to adjust column widths in account registers [edited] (11 Merged Votes)

On a 1920x1080 resolution monitor, using Google Chrome at 100% zoom, I'm actually finding it difficult to identify payees on the Transactions screen. Blame it on the bank, but all of my debit card Apple Pay transactions start with "Mobile Purchase Sign Based." I have to hover over the payee field to see the rest. Also, if I expand the transaction, I lose the ability to hover over the payee field.

If I zoom Chrome out to about 65% I can see everything! Removing the Tags column also helps a bit, but there's no way to enter or see tags if you do that (they don't appear on the expanded view.)

    @RSKadish, it sounds like having the ability to make your columns longer to fit your full payee name would help in this scenario. That is a wonderful suggestion and I hope we get more votes on this to make a change in the future!

    in the transaction list, would be great to be able to resize columns, and to sort on the different columns.

    @rickthau Thanks very much for your suggestion! I'd also like the option to resize the columns on the Transactions page to emphasize what I'm looking for. It is possible to sort transactions on that page by clicking on the column headings. There's also an option to hide or show the columns you're most interested in by clicking on the Gear icon in the upper right corner of the Transactions list. (See image below.) Please keep the comments coming!

    I'm not a fan of the menus on the left expanding, I like to see everything in front of me, BUT, it is hopefully a minor adjustment to make the columns ADJUSTABLE. I hate the fact that the columns are CUTOFF in my TRANSACTION ACTIVITY page. I would love to be able to adjust the column to what I want to see, IN FULL, and what is less important and could be CUTOFF. You allow us to adjust the columns by DATE, by PAYEE, etc..... Please consider the ADJUSTABLE COLUMNS.

    @tomlutz I like this suggestion! I was happy to see that users can show or hide columns on the Transactions list by using the little "Gear" icon in at the upper right, but I'd also like to adjust the width of the remaining columns. You've got my vote!

    I would like to modify the default column widths in the web interface. This is a pretty standard feature of a spreadsheet type of data set, and would allow users to better optimize sizing for their liking. For example, the category field is very wide yet the payee and account ones tend to truncate information.

    Would like to show more of some columns, such as Payee, and less of others without totally hiding them

    I am adding my vote to being able to adjust column widths. This is especially true with the Transaction Activity view redesign. There are large amounts of white space for columns that do not have much information and it is cutting off the size of the Payee field.

    You got my vote - I'd like to be able to resize AND ALSO change the order of columns.  This is not a high priority thing for me, but it would be 'nice to have' that.

  • It sure would be nice to be able to adjust individual column widths.

    You'll soon (Monday?) see this 'idea' merged with the existing idea here: [removed self-referencing link to merged thread]

    I think your vote(s) will move with it.

    Surprisingly, someone voted against this particular idea there.
