Adjusting Column Widths in the Grid


Users can customize the width of columns in all data grids to their liking. Moving the cursor over the divider between the columns will cause it to change to a new icon, and allow you to click and drag to resize. The grid widths will persist the next time you visit the page.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the resizing work?

Clicking and dragging the resize cursor to the right will increase a column's width; dragging the cursor to the left will decrease its column width.

If no scroll bar is present at the bottom of the grid (i.e. all columns fit on the screen), decreasing a column's width will make the column to the right larger. In this scenario, the right most column cannot be resized.

What columns cannot be resized?

The very first column on a grid is fixed and cannot be resized. Columns in non-data grids (e.x. the Activity Log, Completed Reports, etc.) will also remain fixed.

Are there any minimum or maximum column widths?

There is a minimum width of 40px that a column can be resized to.

What happens when I double click the edge of a column?

The column should resize (expand or contract) so that it fits all content in the cell.

How do I reset the column widths to their default width?

Remove the columns from the View Builder and click save. Then re-add them to the grid via the View Builder. They will return with their default width.

How does this affect saved views?

The column width you choose will be preserved as part of any saved view you create.
