It is just that easy :-) However, you might want to group all the Failed ones together at the top of the grid because these are the ones that will really be of interest to the user (I am assuming they will need to do something to fix them?). I doubt they will be all that interested in the successful ones.

I’m writing most of my documents in Markdown ... one of the biggest caveats being lack of native support for tables MultiMarkdown supports tables like this (as per GitHub flavored Markdown) | Heading1 | Heading2 | |----------|----------| | Apples | 27 | | Oranges | 31 | Some MultiMarkdown processors allow elaborations on this theme. ...

You could use Googles Material Design as inspiration here. While you describe the component you're designing as a table, it also sounds similar to a list pattern. When designing lists, material design guidelines recommend placing the primary action on the left and secondary actions on the right. https://material.google.com/components/lists.html#lists-...

There is no "agreed best practice" in this, so I can't give you a definitive answer. However, I've had to deal with exactly this and had to do some user testing on a number of styles. The style that won out was GitHub flavoured markdown, which is both easy to learn, easy to read, and easy to use. My only wish would be that saving automatically aligned the ...

I believe that the number of columns in this table is the real decider. Without an example table this is all conjecture, I would recommend adding an image so people understand what you are asking. However, that being said, lets' examine your table interaction. Examination: Based on your own words, "EDIT" is the main control. If we are dealing with simple ...

Typical number of rows is likely to be the decider. For example, if you have a few rows, Edit buttons might look ok, but if you have many rows each with a Edit button then this might over dominate the visual design, so hyperlinks on column one would lead to a cleaner, less dominant visual design. I personally prefer to use hyperlinks on the primary piece ...

A table is just fine, but there's an awful lot you can do with a table! Just because information is in a table doesn't stop you making it easy to scan, see connected information, identify groups, emphasize important items, and generally ensure that the data itself is in the foreground and the 'table decoration' itself fade into the background. The ...

First option is much more explanatory for the user. I would use some blank slate that describes the cause (why the table is empty, who & when erased it) and possible actions that can be undertaken (Undo, Import of new data). If your product allows to manually fill in the table, you need some empty rows at the beginning, with option to add more of them. ...

One thing that is missing and you should have is - information on total number of pages available. In your screen shot user does not know how many pages there are when the grid loads. Knowing that information is good but you still need validation. I suggest an alternate solution. I think this is simpler UI , no explicit go to buttons , it keeps controls ...

Did you consider using other ways to select a page number? One of the challenges of allowing a person to type into a field is they may not even type a number, so you will need to consider all sorts of other types of data entry field validation. If you use an alternate way for selecting the page, which doesn't involve typing, then the person cannot enter ...

The goal of the Creole project is a standard syntax for wikis. In the finished Creole 1.0 spec, this is the markup for tables: |=Heading Col 1 |=Heading Col 2 | |Cell 1.1 |Two lines\\in Cell 1.2 | |Cell 2.1 |Cell 2.2 | All cells are separated by single pipes. Leading spaces are permitted before the first cell of a ...

You could display an icon indicating the value was edited. One example would be the pencil icon when comments have been edited on this and other Stack Exchange sites. Clicking on this icon would show and allow reversion to the previous value.
