What is Table Grid Next Generation?

(supported since Better PDF Exporter 7.3.0)

Table Grid Next Generation is a Jira app that extends Jira with list- and spreadsheet-like (table-like) custom fields. (Table Grid Next Generation is the modern re-implementation of the legacy app called Table Grid Editor. Both the old and the new apps are integrated with Better PDF Exporter.)

Table Grid Next Generation integration vs. the Table Grid Next Generation built-in PDF exports

You may want to ask: if Table Grid Next Generation has a built-in PDF export feature, why would you use another app for the same?

While the Table Grid Next Generation built-in PDF exports may be sufficient for basic use cases, the Better PDF Exporter integration is more powerful in, at least, these:

If at least one of these is important for you, give the app a try.

Table Grid Next Generation PDF export samples

This PDF sample is a typical quote document with the line items stored in a table grid. The table grid has columns of various data types.


Issue list with table grid fields

When exporting a Table Grid Next Generation issue table, the table grid fields are fit into single cells, essentially becoming tables-in-a-table. Even in this case, the PDF export is perfectly readable and summarizes large amount of data in an intuitive layout.



There is nothing to do. Better PDF Exporter will automatically recognize the Table Grid Next Generation managed fields and export them accordingly.

Note on compatibility: pre-1.4.1 versions of the Table Grid Next Generation app return the table data with some defects (missing rows, different column order, etc.), which also appear in the exported PDF. Therefore, upgrading to 1.4.1 or newer is strongly recommended.
