    I'd love a feature at the top of each table that said "roll table" and clicking it spawned a pop up with the result. Especially for the loot tables.

    They already have this feature with backgrounds, you can randomly roll on those.

    In the meantime, there's a Chrome extension that does this. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dd-toolbox/fffggleecacldpcipbechibchfikglgh?hl=en-US

    Customized random tables would be great for magic item tables, random encounters, effects, etc. If this were player facing, meaning the players could roll on the table in app, that would be even better.

    I think we should have a create our own table section but also a section that shows the tables from all the books we own. So a section that shows example the Gothic Trinkets from Curse of Stradh and beholder generator from Volos could be combined with the interactive DM screen

    It should also support multi rolling on many tables so in case of the Beholder you can press one button to get a complete beholder and minions

    I agree. It'd be nice to have combination tables that all relate to one thing like XGtE backgrounds and making a Beholder.

    I'd

    a) Like to be able to roll on any table in the book. I don't want to have to look up the rules for wild magic every time.

    b) Like to be able to make workflows that combine random rolls on tables. Basically, roll on lots of tables with 1 click. Lots of the XGTE tables are meant to be used in tandem for things like crafting or character creation.

    c) Like to be able to make custom tables of my own, and integrate those with b

    d) like to have a random npc generator based off the XgtE, that basically uses the random character generator, but gives me a monster instead.

    Treasure tables would be very nice too, may even connected to an encounter so when the encounter is over you just have to click once and you know what the players find.

    Custom tables might be cool to of course.

    Rollable tables would be great.  I'd especially love rollable loot tables to be added to the encounter builder.  Too much flipping around to figure out how much loot to roll.

    you also be able to create custom homebrew tables that you can save like a homebrew item that you can reference later. Just pick a title a dice type and fill it in.

    I'd like to be able to have a list of "favourites tables" or something like that. As there are more and more books released, I am taking bits and pieces from all kinds of books. I'd love to be able to easily have quick access to tables in particular, so that I don't have to have billions of tabs open at the same time, or have to waste so much time trying to find them.

    Between the digital dice and the encounter builder, being able to generate treasure using rollable tables would be a great next step. I would like to propose being able to use magic item filters to generate tables which could be updated with all unlocked content.

    I like being able to roll on established tables, but certain items that were added later fall off the radar when using tables in the dmg. Having something that was evergreen would be a huge improvement.

    I recently bought an adventure with 'Rollable Tables' highlighted as a feature. I know there are rollable dice here, so I thought this meant that I could click a dice to have DnDBeyond roll on the table. I was disappointed that it's just a read only table. With dice purchasable and usable on the site, I think this needs clarification in the marketplace.

     

    I would love for these tables to actually be rollable on the site! A favorite tables or table of contents for tables would also be very useful.

    Any purchased document that has a rollable table should give the option to roll.

    On rolling, it should display the virtual dice roll (if enabled) and then display the result in a popup.
