Changing table columns

You can customize the columns of any object table. You can change the width of table columns, add or remove columns, and reorder columns.

To change the width of table columns, click the separator between two column headings and drag it to a new position.

To change the order of the columns, click a column heading, drag it to a different position, and release the mouse button.

To make any other changes to the table columns:

  1. Open the Edit Columns area or dialog:
    • On the Main page or Administration page, click Table settings (image of the Table settings icon) in the right corner of the table. Click Columns.
    • On the Workflow page, click Columns (image of the Columns icon) in the right corner of the Workflow Objects portlet.

  3. To remove columns from the table, select column headings in the Columns list and click Move left (image of the Move left button).
  4. To change the order of table columns, select column headings in the Columns list and click Move up (image of the Move up button) or Move down (image of the Move down button).

  5. To change the width of a table column on the Main page or Administration page, select column headings in the Columns list and click Increase (image of the Increase button) or Decrease (image of the Decrease button).
    The minimum value is a blank. This means that the column width varies with the number of variable-width columns and the total width of the table, less the total width of any fixed-width columns.

    • When you view jobs in a different phase
    • When you view candidate jobs
    • When you Show Jobs from the Documents portlet (only available if a feature that includes it is installed)
    • The next time that you log in
