  1. Hello,

    Can I sticky the 1st column and 1st row if my data source is coming from Google Sheet?

    If so, how? My options do not look like the options I see above

    1. Hello Cris,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us. I am Answering your questions one by one.
      1. Yes, you can make your first column and first row sticky when your data source is coming from Google Sheets. But for that you have to create your table with our default table builder option using google sheet integration. Follow this tutorial for that:
      2. You will not get these option in our drag and drop module. When you create a table with our default table builder option using google sheet integration you can easily make your table header sticky from the table setting tab. And for the sticky first row you will need to code a bit in your Custom CSS snippet of your table.
      I will suggest you to open a support ticket to get any kind of extended assistance from our 24/7 active support team.
      Thank you.
