Is it possible to have two header rows? Example, one row is the title and the one below is the description.


In the Column properties, can we add the Description as the 2nd row of the Datasheet View?



This is not possible using SharePoint OOTB functionalities for Datasheet view.

However you can add description to your fields from field/column settings. These descriptions will be shown on SharePoint list forms.

  • Thank you @ganesh-sanap. Is it possible to have the description show up when a user mouse over the header row rather than the title? Or again, no OOTB, you would have to use javascript? – adams-j Mar 22 '19 at 12:32
  • I am Afraid..But there is No OOTB way to do this either. But you can use JSLink to modify such things...maybe using html attributes like title="Header Description" on header values...Just Hint – Ganesh Sanap Mar 22 '19 at 12:43
