Harry, you can see a preview of this feature in our public Q3 Beta here:

Q3 RTM is slated in about 3 weeks.

Please add this feature! I'm waiting to see it before I purchase Kendo UI. This is the only thing preventing me from switching from Infragistics igGrid to Kendo.

yes me to.... looking forward to this feature...
Posted on: 16 Jul 2014 23:21
Hi -- I'm happy to see this has been put "under review". Can you provide any update on the planning for this feature?
Posted on: 18 Jun 2014 10:07
it is big disappointment, i am not able to use kendo UI just because of this.
Posted on: 16 Apr 2014 22:40
This would be a huge feature.  So many UI frameworks fall short of this feature.

This feature needs to be collapsible so that you can expand grouped columns to view the individual columns as well as collapse if not required. Grouping for it own sake is rather limiting. Collapsing makes it truly a useful feature.

Grouped rows also would be great!
Posted on: 15 Apr 2014 12:44
The groups should also collapse/expand

it is a must have for us as well, otherwise we will be moving away from kendo grid and look for another supplier
Posted on: 12 Feb 2014 07:12
yes, it's imperative now. Even infragistics got them last year... Please plan it asap.

Killer feature.... This is a must have, a statement from KEndo would be more than welcome, as this could become a showstopper for us

Thats a basic functionality ... Where is this? Come on...

It would be usefull to have, because our customer wanted a grid with grouped columns.
Posted on: 15 Nov 2013 12:29
I need this functionality too.
Posted on: 02 Oct 2013 22:35
I'm still evaluating Kendo-UI vs extJS.  Neck and  neck until I found this feature missing.  It may seem trivial but I will use it quite a bit in my app.

Hi, pls Add it else frndz/Team pls post a  workaround for the same... thanxx
Posted on: 02 Sep 2013 15:26
Come on Telerik. Basic stuff.
Posted on: 29 Aug 2013 23:27
I vote for this functionality! Desperately needed - for rows as well.
Posted on: 18 Jul 2013 04:57
This functionality is seemingly of low importance, but it really can be critical in a number of applications.  Please see Sencha's 'Grouped Header Grid' as an example:

I need it too
Posted on: 18 Jun 2013 19:24
Hey guys,

In case any of you want to implement this yourselves, it is very easy. I wrote a simple post about it. I had the requirement to add the headers using Kendo. I simply modified the DOM after loading the grid.

Happy Coding!
Posted on: 10 May 2013 16:29
Rediculous you the grid doesn't have this.
Posted on: 08 May 2013 14:46
Seems like a fundamental feature for a grid.  The "work around" using a header template is "ok" but it looks like we'll have to hook up some javascript magic if you want to be able to sort/filter/group on the "col1" "col2" headers.
Posted on: 07 May 2013 09:11
me need it too, for more then 2 leveles titles
Posted on: 12 Apr 2013 21:18
wijmo also has this feature, they call it Column banding
Posted on: 09 Apr 2013 03:08
I vote for it. It is a very useful feature to group related columns together.

Go Here:

Click on: "Frozen Cols Group Header", in the left nav, then one of the Group Head sub items in the nav.

This is what I'm going to have to use if you guys don't implement this...  Then I would have to learn two grids... and support two grids...  as the project I am going to build has this requirement.

I really hope this makes it into the next release...

I too looking for multi-row headers
Posted on: 05 Mar 2013 07:19
Looking for the same functionality......Asp.Net rad grid supports this

I also need this functionality, for a project that I want to use KendoUI on.
Posted on: 28 Feb 2013 15:53
Please add this!
Posted on: 25 Feb 2013 07:03
I too would love this functionality. Multi-row headers are fairly important to us at the moment.

A workaround could be (Razor): 
[col1].HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { colspan = 2 }).HeaderTemplate(@<text><table><tr><td colspan="2" >category 1</td></tr><tr><td>col 1</td><td>col 2</td></tr></table></text>); 
//Expanding first column to occupy also the second one and providing a template with embedded table.

[col2].HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "display:none;" }); //Hiding second column

Here's the duplicate:

UV doesn't provide the ability to transfer votes (that I'm aware of), but you can remove your votes from this item and apply them to that one. 
Posted on: 24 Oct 2012 22:42
Please add this - it should not be a vote...this should be a common functionality just like most other grids.

Please provide a link to the duplicate.

Can you transfer the votes there?
Posted on: 24 Sep 2012 15:26

Posted on: 22 Jun 2012 05:19
Please add same concept for row-column groups.
