I have search through the community for answers, and most answers say that the first column is supposed to freeze on it's own, but even that is dependent on the browser used.
I can use either Firefox 24.4 or IE11 and while the header row will freeze and stay visible, the first column does not whichever I use. I would like to be able to see at least the first column as I scroll to the right, but it does not stay visible.
How do I set this up to freeze the first column to stay visible as I scroll?
After doing some testing I was able to determine that this functionality appears to be entirely browser driven and is not an intended functionality of QuickBase. While this behavior does work favorably in some scenarios, it is unfortunately not something you can directly control through QuickBase.
Additionally, this functionality won't work on home pages / dashboards - likely due to the widget features overriding the functionality.
The good news is that that if you are viewing a report directly, the report will freeze the first column, but only when you are viewing the report directly and not from the home page or embed.
I have been able to test this using Chrome, Firefox and Safari. I hope this is helpful in answering your question or at least gives you a better impression of what you can expect from this feature.

I don't understand how it is the browser that decides what freezes or not. If that's true, shouldn't there be some functionality in the browser settings to change to be able me to freeze the columns?
Secondly, when you say viewing the report directly, I want to make sure I understand what you mean. To view the report directly, I click on a Table icon for any table I've created to the right of Home & Users. When I click on this, it automatically take me to the List all report. Whenever I scroll to the right, nothing freezes in either Firefox or IE. My company laptop does not have Chrome or Safari, and I am not sure I can/am allowed to get it.
My previous project I was on used QB and this exact same App format and I used IE. It would freeze the first 2 columns which were the "Edit/view" column with the pencil and eye, and the 2nd column which was the Site ID#. All other columns scrolled. Currently, I have about 9 created reports beyond the default reports of List All, List Changes, and others, but none of them freeze the first column on either IE or Firefox.
