Work surface - tables

All tables and detailed views can be adapted to your needs and internal processes. The adjustments are user-specific and therefore only apply to the workstation on which they were made. Once you have made an adjustment, the settings are saved in your user profile.

The user-defined settings can be exported as a so-called "application profile" and transferred to other workstations. How to do this can be found under Exporting / importing an application profile.


The tables consist of a table heading and the content area. Right-click on the table heading to get to the context menu with many useful functions:

  • Add columns
  • Remove columns
  • Group content according to a specific column
  • Automatically adjust all column widths in a table
  • Filter by content

These functions are described below.
