The data table card provides a preview of historic data in a table format. Currently, data table cards display up to four rows and two columns that can be customized to fit a variety of use cases. This card can also be used as an entry point to a connected data table.

A. Title Area
The title area has a title, a subtitle, a timestamp, and a photo thumbnail. A title is required and can wrap up to two lines. The thumbnail, subtitle, and timestamp are optional.
We recommend including four entries maximum. To accommodate various use cases, you can configure entries to adjust text size, weight, and color. As default, each entry allows two lines at maximum, truncating after two lines. The icon is optional.
C. More Entries
The “more entries” section helps indicate there are more items in the data set. If there are no additional entries, “No more entries” is displayed.

Behavior and Interaction
The data table card only has one action, meaning that the whole card is a touch target.

The data table cards on mobile follow a vertically stacked single-column layout. The tablet displays a two or three-column grid layout. When utilizing cards with auto-adjusted height, there is also the option to display a masonry layout on the tablet.
The card carousel follows the same number of columns as the grid with adjusted card width, so an additional card is visible and cut off at the end. The slice of a card at the end indicates horizontal scrolling. In a masonry layout, there is no horizontal scrolling.

Data table card entries can be customized to adjust the section’s visual treatment, providing flexibility for different use cases. The icon can also be changed from the default “event note” icon. When displaying a status, we recommend adding an additional visual element to convey the semantic meaning, such as adding an icon, boldening the text, or changing the text color.
