Views can be configured on each module page of an app to allow the records to be displayed in different list and report formats. An app's modules pages are those defined from the App Builder Modules page, such as the Profiles, Employees, or Audit Trail pages.
Creating a View¶
On each module page, hover over the View Settings button on the right side of the page to open the module's settings dialog. To pin the dialog so it remains fixed on the screen, click the pin icon.
After a view is created or updated, when the Save button is clicked, a Save Options dialog is displayed in which the view's name is defined and allows the view's sharing configuration to be defined.
In the Sharing section of the dialog, selection can be made for all users and only certain profiles in the system can display the relevant view with the Visible to Specific Profiles selection. Additionally, if the view that is being worked on is to be edited, the Save button under the dialog that opens when the Save button is clicked should be clicked. If it is desired to be saved as new, the Save as New button should be clicked.
Supported View Structures¶
In the system, four different view structures are supported:
- Grid: The interface that presents a view in list format. Records can be displayed as a list or a grouped list.
- Calendar: The interface that presents the records in the module in a calendar view.
- Report: A view type that can offer different views depending on the report type. This view supports three different report types: Summary Report, List, and Single Report.
- Kanban: The interface that presents the records in the module in Kanban view according to a selected dropdown list.
