For your reactable, you might consider adding summary info across the row, and setting onClick = TRUE, so when you click on any cell in the row, it expands the row.

That expanding row feels a little 'hidden' now, especially since the Composer is a link out of the table.

Thanks Curtis. Increasing the size of the clickable area really improves navigation of the table.
