Working with views
You can work with views in the following ways:
- Refreshing and locking views
You can refresh the data in a view manually or automatically. Setting a view to automatically refresh itself is a convenient way to continually monitor information. Locking a view lets you study the data in the view at a particular point in time.
For more information, see Refreshing view data in MainView Explorer, Locking and updating data in views, and Refreshing view data in windows mode.
- Filtering views
Filtering a view lets you see only the data that you want to see. You can filter the view's query, the view's form, or both.
For more information, see Filtering data in a view in MainView Explorer and Filtering data in a view in windows mode.
- Customizing views
You can reorder the columns in a view, add or delete columns, add hyperlinks, change headings, change colors, set thresholds, and so on. You can save customized views for future use.
For more information, see Customizing data display in MainView Explorer and Customizing data display in windows mode.
