Customisation options

Users can customise each Grid to their own particular preferences by choosing:

  • the columns they wish to see
  • the order in which columns appear
  • the width of columns

All changes to Grids are remembered by the system and applied the next time you log in.

Adding or removing columns

Clicking the pencil icon will reveal the Field Chooser popup. Available columns will be listed in the popup.

To add a column, left-click on the required column title in the Field Chooser popup and drag the column onto the Grid.

To remove a column, left-click on the column heading and drag the heading from the Grid back into the Field Chooser popup.
