The Section Title

Enter the Title of new Section. Click on the small down arrow available next to the Section Title field, to see following two options.

  • Manual title: This is selected by default, to help you write the Section Title manually.
  • Auto title: Select this option to auto-generated the Section title. The Section is automatically titled by the order number of Sections created in this TMail so far. For example, if the TMail has 5 Sections, the Auto title option for this new Section gives it a Title as Section-6. Note that the number includes a count of all Sections created so far in this TMail, including the deleted Sections if any.

Create a New Grid Section For a Current TMail

When you open any TMail, you have an option to use Respond to post a reply. In Respond option, you can see options to create a new Section. While adding a new Grid Section, it is recommended to use the Respond action because all your work is automatically saved in real time as a Response Draft, and you can continue adding more content later, anytime, any number of times. (Please see Respond to a TMail for more details.)

When you use Respond, the option to create a new Grid section appears as you see it when you create a new Grid section for a new TMail.

Add Data in a Grid View

In the Grid view, you can add data as you do in a spreadsheet. (Note that the Grid Section does not support the concept of formulas. It is meant more for laying out information in a Grid layout). A Grid Section helps you share information in the tabular format. When you add data, you can use the toolbar for basic text formatting, or for styling of rows or columns.

Click on Create and Close button to save the Section. The tab closes and you can see the Parent tab to continue with the TMail or Response Draft.

Create Grid Sections in Drafts, and Response Drafts Folders

When you see Response Drafts Folder or Drafts Folder, there is an option to create new Sections, including a Grid section. (Please see The Response Drafts Folder and The Drafts Folder for more details.)
