The overall user interface can be seen essentially as three main blocks: the main table, the filters and the details section (if visible) as depicted here:
Other views in the app might have more tables and tabs but the overall view and principles are essentially the same.
Every table has a Columns and View Selector on its bottom left corner. The column selector allows you to pick which columns are visible in the table. The views selector allows you to manage and switch between table views (more on this below).
Columns in a table can be:
- Reordered: by drag-and-dropping them into the desired location.
- Resized: by dragging the resize handle on its right.
- Sorted by: by clicking on the icon. To sort data by multiple columns, press and hold
Shiftand click on the other column's header you want data to be sorted by.
- Grouped by: by clicking on the icon.
For brevity's sake, when mentioning a table's configuration we refer to its visible columns, columns order, sorting, grouping and sizing.
Table views allow you to save the current configuration and currently applied filters (if any) of a table. This way you can save different Views depending on your needs and quickly switch between them.
The more data you display, the longer it takes for the app to render it. In most cases, it shouldn't be problem but if you start noticing things getting slower, make sure to pick only the columns you need visible (and rows, by filtering data) at a single time and save that configuration into a View.
To see what actions a table has available you can always check the buttons on top of it:
Or the context menu by right-clicking on the table:
