Start with a new table

A table is a collection of related data that can be viewed, sorted, and filtered in various ways. In this section, we will walk you through the process of starting with a table in Baserow.

  1. Within your database in the sidebar, click + Create table.
  2. Input a name for the new table. When you create a new table, you should give it a distinctive name that’s not the same as any other table name in the current database.
  3. Select Start with a new table.

This will create a new table for you with a few default fields and rows.

Duplicate a table

Duplicating a table is a quick and easy way to make a copy of an existing table, which can be especially helpful if you need to make changes to the data without affecting the original table. In this section, we will discuss the steps to duplicate a table in Baserow.

To duplicate a row in Baserow, follow these steps:

  • In the sidebar, hover over the table you want to duplicate. You will see a small vertical ellipsis (three dots) appear by the table.
  • Click on the ellipsis to open the table options menu.
  • From the menu, select “Duplicate.”

Baserow will now create a duplicate of the selected table and place it immediately below the original table. You can view the database and table duplication progress in the left sidebar.
