How to Customize the Columns for Form Entries

Would you like to choose which fields are displayed on your form’s main Entries page? By default, this screen will simply display the first three fields of your form. Customizing the Entries page columns allows you to quickly view the most important entry fields of each form.

In this tutorial, we’ll discuss how to choose which fields are displayed in Entries page columns.


To get started, you’ll need to go to WPForms » Entries and select the title of the form you’d like to view entries for.

This will open the Entries page for that form. From there, you can click on the gear icon to the right of the current column titles.

You can choose to display several different types of columns. The complete list of types are:

  • Form Fields – Select any field type (e.g., Name, Phone) and display all its entries.
  • Entry ID – Shows the unique ID number associated with each entry.
  • Entry Notes – Shows the number of notes that you’ve added to entries.

When you’ve selected all the columns you’d like, you can click on the Save and Refresh button.
