What are Custom Columns?
The "Custom Columns" allows choosing and displaying specific columns in Lists, such as a spreadsheet, providing flexibility and efficiency in organizing information. The Custom Columns can be saved as templates for future use, making it easier to recall and access important information in a second.
Managing Custom Columns
To access the Custom Columns feature, click the "Columns" icons button at the top left of the List.
By clicking the "Manage Columns" option, you can select which columns to show or hide in the current List. You can also rearrange the order of the columns by dragging and dropping them in the desired order.
The changes can be saved as a new custom column template for future use. If you have multiple custom column sets, you can switch between them quickly using the list of saved Custom Columns.
When clicking a select appears with two options:
- Manage Columns
- A list of saved Custom Columns to switch quickly between (If you haven't saved any, you'll only have "Default" listed).
Adding, removing, and reordering Columns
To add, remove, or reorder Columns, start by clicking on the "Manage Columns" button. A pop-up will appear. Users will see the list of Saved Templates on the left, the list of options ordered by type (Basic Information, Contributors, Royalties, Tags), and a list of the already selected columns on the right.
To add columns to display in the List, Users will have to select them by clicking on the checkboxes to select them. To remove some of the columns, Users can de-select the checkboxes or click on the cross in the Selected Columns section on the right.
Once all relevant information has been selected to appear in the Columns, Users can reorganize them by sliding the different categories above or under one another in the Selected Columns section. To do so, Users will have to put the cursor on the dots on the right of each category, click and slide in the right direction.
Once the selection has been made, click on the "Apply" button in the lower right corner of the pop-up window.
Saving Custom Columns
Always be sure to find the List View that, well, checks all the boxes, Users can save their selections and avoid going through the same process every time.
To save templates of Custom Columns, Users have to make the selection in the pop-up window and click on "Save template" in the lower right corner, right next to the "Cancel" and "Apply" buttons.
