Modify a Markdown Table for Advanced Printing Templates

This is a follow up post to the Dynamic Markdown Tables in Podio post. Its a bit trickier to get a table from Podio to look nice in our Advanced Printing Templates extension. But i'm here to show you how.


The basic idea is that the columns of the table need to be a set width since the markdown format is not (yet) supported in Advanced Printing Templates. So i'll show you how to get this space in there, without unformatting the table in Podio.

Creating Dynamic Markdown Tables in Podio Calculation Fields

I recently figured out how to make 100% Dynamic Markdown Tables in Podio. You can create tables with as many rows and/or as many columns as you want, and its dynamic (supports a variable number of rows and/or columns). It’s pretty amazing!


At TECHeGO, we’ve done more complicated versions of this kind of table, so if you want help setting up one or more custom dashboard tables like this, please feel free to contact us for help.

However they do support markdown, which is how we figured out how to get mailto links working!
