There should have an option to adjust the column width of each column of the List created with the List Template.
Re: List Template column width Steegle 9/29/09 7:07 AM
Nice suggestion.
Re: List Template column width carlosdesa 9/29/09 7:18 AM
we all need this one feature
Re: List Template column width fsantos20 10/8/09 12:09 PM
I'm working on some lists and it's very limiting not to be able do adjust the width of the column. The list starts with names which can take a bit of space but some columns like the date and a link shown by a small word take to much space left in blank. Which leaves the names column to tight.
Re: List Template column width creditdetailer 10/9/09 3:40 AM
I like this suggestion too! 
It would make lists so much better
Re: List Template column width ABurns 10/25/09 6:15 AM
Please add my voiuce to those who would consider this an important addition.
Re: List Template column width rjp57 10/25/09 10:09 AM
The ability to adjust columns would be a BIG help in making the page user friendly for users.
Re: List Template column width bwhaddock 10/27/09 5:46 AM
Yes... I agree, it's very limiting not being able to adjust the width of columns... this would be a very useful addition... Please add it soon, Google!  Thank you!!!
Re: List Template column width OldFisherGeek 10/31/09 6:18 AM
Please do this .....  it would be a major feature for those of us who want to track tasks, issues, etc. 
Re: List Template column width pfieldho 11/1/09 10:17 AM
Yes - it would make lists much more user friendly.
Re: List Template column width awgibbons 11/18/09 3:01 PM
I agree, this would be incredibly useful.
Re: List Template column width JHSch 11/25/09 7:01 AM
Yes.  This would be a great feature.
Re: List Template column width Synder 11/26/09 9:21 AM
 I would really like that feature
Re: List Template column width archier 11/27/09 11:14 AM

yes,  current lists are kind of lame without this.    right now a checkbox takes up as much width as a descriptive field.
Re: List Template column width svalambhia 11/28/09 2:58 AM

Re: List Template column width levent.bayindir 12/8/09 12:46 PM
I agree. This feature should be added as fast as possible.
Re: List Template column width alan.booco 12/21/09 12:42 PM
I agree.  This would be VERY nice to have.
Re: List Template column width Grallen 12/24/09 5:07 PM
I can't believe it doesn't have this feature yet.
Re: List Template column width LaraG 12/31/09 11:08 AM
Very much agree!! Google, please give us all what will be our favorite stocking stuffer this year, and let adjust the width of columns!
Re: List Template column width turkucc 1/22/10 1:54 AM
I very much agree. Please add a column adjustment feature. It would greatly improve functionality.
Re: List Template column width Iñigo 2/1/10 12:42 PM
Estoy totalmente de acuerdo por favor Google incluir esta funcionalidad
I totally agree, please >Google add it soon. Thanks
Re: List Template column width JuliaLP 2/23/10 7:11 AM
Yes, I agree - adjustable columns in lists are needed!
Re: List Template column width Marcel Overdijk 3/14/10 7:45 AM
I really need this...
Re: List Template column width ssalo 3/17/10 7:02 AM
Totally in agreement.
Re: List Template column width LittleTux 3/18/10 9:57 AM
I agree.  This would be a great feature.
Re: List Template column width palatinate 3/26/10 8:02 AM
I'm just using lists for the first time and also think this would be a key improvement (and it should not be that hard to do!!). My team are finding that list pages have benefits over just having an HTML table within a regular page (built in sorting, form entry etc) but our tables have a mix of long text narratives and short fields (e.g. an action list has "Action Number" - 2 characters, and "Description" which can be 100s ...) so the page space is used very inefficiently.
Re: List Template column width Mygalomorph 4/6/10 1:20 AM
Agreed, this feature would really help, as would the ability to import/export.
Re: List Template column width nadalwin 4/22/10 4:56 PM
Totally agreement.  I am new and searching for how to change the column width
Re: List Template column width customsoftware 6/12/10 9:33 PM
So, is there no workaround for this? Are you just stuck with the fixed width columns in lists? I find this hard to believe...there must be a simple workaround, could someone please share it? I need to adjust a couple of my column widths on this page:
 
 
Thank you for your help.
Re: List Template column width Steegle 6/17/10 3:23 AM
@customsoftware
There is no work around as you cannot edit the code of a Google Site.
Re: List Template column width joescarr 6/25/10 3:08 PM
Google.... what's the delay?  This should be easy for you!  ;)  Seriously, though, you should also include date/timestamps next to these help forum comments... else we have no idea how LONG these issues have gone unaddressed....

Try looking in the left column under your name and level and you will see the date the message was posted.
Re: List Template column width drumtrucker 7/11/10 10:52 AM
Typical Google doesn't seem to give a rat's behind about users wants or needs, even with basic stuff like this (and my pet peev, their cr*p calander system)
Re: List Template column width customsoftware 7/11/10 11:52 AM
I think they pay attention, but i don't think it is high on the priority list...I had an idea, would it be possible to create google gadget that takes the url of a google page and the gadget filters html so you get the table you want displayed? i was thinking maybe you could just create a page that is not page of the site with the predefined google table and when it is run through the filter gadget on the page where you really want the table the html can be modified so the table has different column widths?

thanks
Re: List Template column width customsoftware 7/11/10 11:58 AM
Another idea I had was that there is a gadget that lets you translate your google sites page to another language could that be leverage to translate a google predefined elements?

Re: List Template column width nburger 8/17/10 10:12 PM
I agree, I'd like this feature.  However, I don't think anyone should complain.  We are not being abused by Google.  This free and highly useful service is fantastic, even if it doesn't offer every feature we would like to have.  You can always build and host your own solution if you're not satisfied.  Realistically you'd have to pay someone to host it too, unless you have an always on server and a static IP.  You could use your networking savvy to setup dynamic addressing between your domain and your dynamic address.  You'd probably also need a domain name too.  I actually thought about going this route, I have plenty of savvy to pull it off.  I'm trying this first, and it's very nice.

If you really want a list customized to your exact needs then you can create your own HTML (I've solved a few other problems that way).  You can edit the HTML for sites pages directly at the code level and do whatever you need.  In this case it's just a simple table.  You'd have to edit the source code directly or use an after market HTML editor (they have pretty good ones out there).  

Anyway, good luck.
Re: List Template column width Danimusic2 8/27/10 10:09 AM
If you don't like the way the list doesn't adjust, try using INSERT - TABLE.  Tables let you adjust the column width, and then you could just format it to look similar to a list. 
Re: List Template column width rajkumarrishi1 9/26/10 10:58 AM
i agree to this suggestion. This should be included. One more suggestion, 'image' in the list template.
Re: List Template column width broennum 10/1/10 4:38 AM
I agree to - this is a pity in a cms that is otherwise very useful
Re: List Template column width wonky73 10/4/10 12:18 PM
Excellent Suggestion! Bravissimo!
Re: List Template column width blakescello 10/19/10 4:46 AM
I would like to add my voice to requesting this feature. Google Sites is the best!
Re: List Template column width mbarry4 10/28/10 3:08 PM
Yes, get on with it Google, this is clearly needed for useful lists
Re: List Template column width bkdlays 11/9/10 7:17 AM
Also need this functionality.. just want it to auto adjust based on the column name
Re: List Template column width sablyth 1/23/11 5:28 PM
This feature would be very useful. As would ability to increase padding between columns - it's too narrow!
Re: List Template column width magnolia s 3/22/11 3:51 AM
I need this too. I'm a bit upset that we're in '11 now when the original post here was made in '09.  What could possibly be the holdup here?
Re: List Template column width JcDenaes 3/22/11 6:42 AM
Yep! most needed !

Re: List Template column width eventsubmit 4/12/11 11:26 AM
Please Please Google...let us change the widths.  My site would be so much better, and my adsense would make you more $$!
Re: List Template column width paynetech 4/19/11 12:25 PM
Let's see, the first response was on 9/28/09 and today is 04.19.11.

This feature request must really be challenging to Goggle programmers. They've come a long way but still have a long way to go. That's why "real" websites are developed using other tools and technologies.
Re: List Template column width philip10cmr 6/9/11 1:26 PM
Check that, it is now 06.09.11 .... and I'm also looking for this feature.

@Googlesites
PLEASE ADD IT!!
Re: List Template column width sregit 7/8/11 12:47 PM
I would appreciate it if Google could add this feature to change the width property of any columns in the list template and list widget as soon as possible. In addition, I would like Google to add the following feature:

1. to change the color of text in each column;

2. to change the background color of in each column;

3. to filter appeared items in a list; and,

4. to collapse items in a list by the value of the specified column.
Re: List Template column width todos 8/12/11 6:55 AM
I agree, it really would be nice to be able to tweak the lists a little. Wonder if just not enough people use the list template feature?
Re: List Template column width customsoftware 8/14/11 7:39 AM
I was looking at some the spreadsheet functions in google docs, and there is one that i'm interested in using that will allow you to import and column from a webpage from a specific table as a database array object. i'm trying to get it to work with this the list template. could someone that has done this provide a simple example of how it could be done (maybe just sum all the rows in a column from the list template would be good)...or if it is not possible let me know that too.

The documentation has links for more info for these functions, but i'm getting errors, i'm wondering if it is my environment, but I can't get this page to load correctly for example (it is example i believe for DSUM):

Re: List Template column width tmeita 8/24/11 9:14 PM
Almost a year and still nothing? I don't think google is going to be able to make this change, and if it does change in the future, it may not be a free feature.

So if anyone can make a custom gadget that will work like List Items....please do so. Consider adding a thumbnail support in the list as well if possible.

Thanks
Re: List Template column width tomahawkssoftball 5/22/12 7:37 AM
I'd love to see this......soon!
 
Anyone know of any similar work arounds?
Re: List Template column width TheBeerHunter 9/19/12 10:46 PM

Re: List Template column width dbanana 3/6/13 7:46 AM
I agree. The list page is way to restrictive and needs a column width adjustment option
Re: List Template column width Vincent DARONNAT 9/18/13 2:15 AM
