Filters

Grids have multiple Filter fields which can be used to restrict the criteria for returned results.

For example all Layouts belonging to a particular Owner can be the only results shown in the Grid.

Multi-select - With Selected

Grids include the ability to multi-select rows to perform bulk actions. Available actions that can be applied in multiples are shown by clicking the With Selected button at the bottom of the page.

Multi Select

  • Edit Tags

    Allows a User to add new Tags with the option of removing any existing Tags from multiple selections.

    Bulk Tags

  • Share

    This option allows Users to edit multiple Sharing options at the same time.

    Elements that are shown with an indeterminate status - are the result of a difference in options already set. Any changes made here will be applied to all selected elements.

    Example scenario:

    Two Layouts are selected which already have the following Share options applied:

    Layout 1 - view 1, Edit 0, Delete 0

    Layout 2 - View 1, Edit 1, Delete 0

    When multi-selected it would show the following:

    View 1, Edit -, Delete 0

    A User makes changes and toggles to:

    View 0, Edit -, Delete 1 (leaving Edit in its current status)

    The two Layouts would now have the following Share options set:

    Layout 1 - View 0, Edit 0, Delete 0

    Layout 2 - View 0, Edit 1, Delete 1

Available actions are dependent on the page selected.

Paging

If available, a paging control option will be shown to allow a User to switch between pages of results.
