Sometimes we would like to hide a column in our pivot table so we will be able to apply a specific logic or order the table by a column without displaying it.

The following script will allow you to hide the needed columns in your Pivot table.

To implement it, please make sure to:

  • Adjust the number of columns according to your widget
  • Place 0 for the column you'd like to hide
  • Save the script
  • Refresh the page

The following script is adjusted for a pivot table with 5 columns, hiding 2 of them:

var newWidth = {
0: 100,
1: 0,
2: 100,
3: 0,
4: 100
var columnsToRemove = []
var passed = -1
var wasExecuted = false
widget.on('processresult', function(widget, args){
if (!wasExecuted) {
args.result.metadata.forEach(function(e, index) {
if (e.panel != "scope" ) {
index = Object.keys(newWidth).length - index+passed;
if ( typeof(newWidth[index]) !== "undefined" ) {
e["format"] = {"width":newWidth[index]};
if (e.format.width === 0) {
else {
passed ++
wasExecuted = true
widget.on('ready', function() {
columnsToRemove.forEach(function(item) {
var selector = "[class*=table-grid__cell--col-" + item +"]";
$(selector, element).each(function(i, lmnt) {

Here is an example of the above script:

I am unable to get this to work for Windows. Would this require different code?

Also! Second question. If we are looking at 2 Values but only want to show the second value in the last column, would this "column hide" code work? (screen shot below)

Hi @rklingensmith,


Yes - Windows uses Pivot 1.0 charts while Linux uses Pivot 2.0

The HTML labels are different for both pivot chart tables.


As this code relies on HTML class names (selector = "[class*=table-grid__cell--col-" + item +"]") - It won't execute as expected.


A "Pivot 1.0 Customization" article will soon be available in the Sisense Knowledgebase to cover the code for this functionality.


Per the second question:

A similar code may work if you tweak it a bit to ignore the last column's occurance
