Customizing Your View
To customize a view, go to the page you would like to edit. There are three customizable areas available:
- You can choose to reorganize your columns by dragging and dropping column headers.
- You can also choose which columns you want to appear on your view by clicking on the cog wheel icon on the right-hand side of the page. This gives you the ability to select or deselect any available columns.
- In some cases, you will want to filter your list so you can quickly see results that need your attention. Simply select the filter icon located next to the search bar. Then click on the filter and choose the data you want included in your view.
You have the ability to filter any date fields both statically and dynamically. Filtering statically allows you to save queries within a specific date range, or before/after a specific date. Filtering statically allows you to save queries like ‘events in the last 30’ days or ‘documents expiring in the next month’ that will always reflect the selected time period.
Filter on Blank Values
If you need to find items that have missing data, you can also choose set your filter to show blank values
