Hey, Ty,
Do you mind sharing what version of Skuid you're running? And perhaps a screenshot of the configuration for your model's ui-only field in the builder?

Ah. The page xml is helpful, thank you. Skuid actually does not currently support showing inline help text in the Table component, only in the Field Editor component.

I would check out this thread for a few more details, as well as some suggestions for how surface that help text in your table: https://community.skuid.com/skuid/topics/is-it-possible-to-add-help-text-to-a-table-field
