Search Results Table¶
Search results for records are displayed in a table located under the search bar. The table columns are the displayed attributes of records and the main displayed attributes of related records (if there are any relations/links to lookup entity) of the selected entity/lookup entity. You can also configure search results. The table configuration options are shown below.
Selecting & Sorting Records¶
To select records:
Put a checkbox next to a required record. The checkbox is located at the very beginning of the record line.
If you put several checkboxes next to records, only these records will be selected.
If you put a checkbox in a table header, all records will be selected.
To sort records in descending order:
Left-click once on the header of any column in the table.
To sort records in ascending order:
Left-click the header of any column in the table twice (once if descending sorting is already enabled).
To cancel sorting:
If ascending sorting is enabled, left-click the header 1 time.
If descending sorting is enabled, left-click the header 2 times.
When sorting by multiple columns at the same time:
If 2 or more records in column 1 have the same values, they will be sorted by column 2 and further. For example, column 1 = sort by name, column 2 = sort by age. As a result of double sorting, all records with the same name will be sorted internally by age.
Search Table Configs¶
Use the Cell view type button (on the right side of the table header) to change the appearance of the table cells. The function is applicable for attributes with the “Multiline field” property (see description of the “View” parameter). When clicked, the display state of cells with multiline fields changes.
Default state. Multiline attribute display with Formatting: for better reading, attribute values are displayed on a single line.
Display of multiline attributes without formatting: with line breaks etc. Attributes are displayed as they appear in the record card. Limitation: The table displays up to 5 rows of attribute content.
To hide or display table columns:
Use the “Show all” checkbox to display all available columns in the table (available if one or more columns are disabled). If the checkbox is enabled, it cannot be disabled.
Enable or disable the checkbox for the required column to control how the column is displayed in the table.
For complex attributes, you can enable or disable the entire display, or do it separately for each nested attribute.
Click “Save” to fix the settings. In the future, when you search for records in this entity/loookup entity, the display of attributes and sorting of the table will be saved.
If the width of the table columns has been changed manually before, you can reset it using the “Reset Columns Width” button.

To update the table, click the “Refresh”” button in the lower-left corner of the table.
To switch the page, click “Next” or “Back”, or enter the required page number. The page control is located at the bottom of the table, in a center.
To specify how many records are displayed on a page, select the appropriate number in the element located in the lower-right corner of the table.
Displaying Hierarchical Lookup Entities¶
Hierarchical lookup entity records in the “Data” section can be displayed both in tabular form and as a hierarchical tree (Figure 2).
The parent node is assigned in the record card. You can go to the record card by clicking on the record name.
Search for records by criteria is possible only in tabular form. If you try to add a search criterion, the appearance will change to tabular.
