Columns

The $table->columns() method is used to define the columns in your table. It is an array of column objects, in the order they should appear in your table.

We have many columns available for your tables, including:

To view a full list of available table columns, see the Table Builder documentation.

You may also build your own completely custom table columns.

Sorting a column by default

If a column is sortable(), you may choose to sort it by default using the $table->defaultSort() method:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
use Filament\Tables;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
Tables\Columns\TextColumn::make('name')->sortable(),
// ...
])
->defaultSort('name');
}

Filters

Filters are predefined scopes that administrators can use to filter records in your table. The $table->filters() method is used to register these.

Displaying filters above or below the table content

To render the filters above the table content instead of in a popover, you may use:

use Filament\Tables\Filters\Layout;
use Filament\Resources\Table;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
])
->filters(
[
// ...
],
layout: Layout::AboveContent,
);
}

To render the filters below the table content instead of in a popover, you may use:

use Filament\Tables\Filters\Layout;
use Filament\Resources\Table;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
])
->filters(
[
// ...
],
layout: Layout::BelowContent,
);
}

Actions

Actions are buttons that are rendered at the end of table rows. They allow the user to perform a task on a record in the table. To learn how to build actions, see the full actions documentation.

To add actions to a table, use the $table->actions() method:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
use Filament\Tables;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
])
->actions([
// ...
Tables\Actions\Action::make('activate')
->action(fn (Post $record) => $record->activate())
->requiresConfirmation()
->color('success'),
]);
}

Grouping actions

You may use an ActionGroup object to group multiple table actions together in a dropdown:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
use Filament\Tables;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
])
->actions([
Tables\Actions\ActionGroup::make([
Tables\Actions\ViewAction::make(),
Tables\Actions\EditAction::make(),
Tables\Actions\DeleteAction::make(),
]),
]);
}

Bulk actions

Bulk actions are buttons that are rendered in a dropdown in the header of the table. They appear when you select records using the checkboxes at the start of each table row. They allow the user to perform a task on multiple records at once in the table. To learn how to build bulk actions, see the full actions documentation.

To add bulk actions, use the $table->bulkActions() method:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
use Filament\Tables;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Collection;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
])
->bulkActions([
// ...
Tables\Actions\BulkAction::make('activate')
->action(fn (Collection $records) => $records->each->activate())
->requiresConfirmation()
->color('success')
->icon('heroicon-o-check'),
]);
}

Reordering records

To allow the user to reorder records using drag and drop in your table, you can use the reorderable() method:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
// ...
->reorderable('sort');
}

When making the table reorderable, a new button will be available on the table to toggle reordering. Pagination will be disabled in reorder mode to allow you to move records between pages.

The reorderable() method passes in the name of a column to store the record order in. If you use something like spatie/eloquent-sortable with an order column such as order_column, you may pass this in to reorderable():

use Filament\Resources\Table;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
// ...
->reorderable('order_column');
}

Polling content

You may poll table content so that it refreshes at a set interval, using the poll() method:

use Filament\Resources\Table;
 
public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
// ...
->poll('10s');
}

Authorization

For authorization, Filament will observe any model policies that are registered in your app.

Users may access the List page if the viewAny() method of the model policy returns true.

The reorder() method is used to control reordering a record.

Customizing the Eloquent query

Although you can customize the Eloquent query for the entire resource, you may also make specific modifications for the List page table. To do this, override the getTableQuery() method on the page class:

protected function getTableQuery(): Builder
{
return parent::getTableQuery()->withoutGlobalScopes();
}

Custom view

For further customization opportunities, you can override the static $view property on the page class to a custom view in your app:

protected static string $view = 'filament.resources.users.pages.list-users';
