Add a source note to the footer part of the gt table. A source note is useful for citing the data included in the table. Several can be added to the footer, simply use multiple calls of tab_source_note() and they will be inserted in the order provided. We can use Markdown formatting for the note, or, if the table is intended for HTML output, we can include HTML formatting.


tab_source_note(data, source_note)



A table object that is created using the gt() function.


Text to be used in the source note. We can optionally use the md() and html() functions to style the text as Markdown or to retain HTML elements in the text.


An object of class gt_tbl.


Use gtcars to create a gt table. Use tab_source_note() to add a source note to the table footer that cites the data source.

gtcars %>%
  dplyr::select(mfr, model, msrp) %>%
  dplyr::slice(1:5) %>%
  gt() %>%
  tab_source_note(source_note = "From")
