Data Table Design UX Patterns

Why does table design UX matter?

Tables tend to have a somewhat (undeserved) bad reputation in the world of digital interfaces. They are often perceived as cold and overwhelming. Yet in so many cases they are the most efficient way to organize complex information in a digestible manner (which of course is central to data dashboard experiences as well as they are often paired together). A well-thought-out table interaction experience in enterprise software design can enhance clarity, ease users’ lives and maximize the data’s potential.

Enterprise software companies regularly serve up  large quantities of data to their users, making well designed table experiences are a priority.
