Adding icons in column headers (in table view)

Hi all,

Is it possible to add icons in the actual column header itself? I know you can icons in the values of a column, but what about the actual column heading?

For example I want have a column header name as “COMPANY (and a sort icon)”, which will imply that the COMPANY column is sorted in this view.

Would love to get some help on this.

Thanks

Max

Don’t think that is possible… (if I understood you right).
Not in column label or headings in UX.

Thanks for the prompt reply. What if I add an icon or symbol in the actual excel sheet? Will that work?

When you add the special character in the display name of the column, it works beautifully.

Problem Solved!

Thanks heaps @Suvrutt_Gurjar. Would you happen to know if font awesome icons can be used for column header names?

As per my understanding, that will not be possible.

Anything that can go as special characters may be inluded.

However as the referred post threads mention, the rendering will be a bit different on different OS and earlier versions of OS s may not support the rendering.of certain latest additions to the emojis.
