Immobilize columns

Good morning, I need to immobilize a column within the metabase tables. Is there any way to do it?

Hi @melanimorales
What does “immobilize” mean? Your data source tables and columns are handled in Admin > Data Model.

Hi @flamber
that when moving in the table, a column is fixed

@melanimorales I don’t think I understand. Are you talking about the freeze/frozen column/row that Excel has? If yes, then Metabase does not have such functionality.

@flamber do you know if they are going to incorporate it?

@melanimorales Workaround: You can export as XLSX and freeze the columns/rows you want in Excel.

EDIT: There’s now a feature request:

@flamber Thank you so much!

Hi @flamber Is is possible to provide a rough estimate for when this feature may be developed? The business keeps asking for a timeline (we have embedded Metabase in Salesforce, which is mostly used on tablets and this feature is very helpful there).
I checked the Metabase roadmap and it is not mentioned there.

@King_Edward Customers should reach out to support via email, so it can be tracked and prioritized.
I don't have a timeline for this, but it would likely not be listed as a separate point on the roadmap either.

Thanks, I'll send an email.

Hi @flamber, we're using Metabase v0.44.1 and I don't see pivot table visualization. I have table and dynamic table. If I choose table, there is an option to pivot the table, but I don't see options for that so I can't fix de first column or row. Is there any chance I could do it? I'm a beginner on Metabase, I'm a bit lost :frowning: . Thank you in advance!
Best regards!

Thanks @flamber, but my problem is that I can't find that visualization. This is what I see:

I choose Table and this is what I have:

The visualization does the pivot, but the first column and row aren't fixed. Please, can you help me? Thanks!

@Adriana1 It's called "Tabla dinámica" in your language.

Ahhhh, I thought it was a different type. The problem with those tables is that we can't set any format, right? Otherwise, can you tell me how to set a conditional format please? Thank you very much for your help!

@Adriana1
That's currently not possible, but there's work being done to implement it:
