You can personalize the way you look at Working Papers file data using Tracker views. Create and customize views to display only the information relevant to you and other staff, or use them to filter files based on specific properties. For example, you can create a Lock Down view that filters your files based on their lock down status and specific jurisdictions and classes.
There are two types of views:
- Personal: All users can create personal views for use on their local workstation.
- Shared: Users with administrative rights to a Data Store can create shared views. Shared views are accessible by any users in the Data Store.
By default, some sample views are provided in the Views pane of Tracker.
To create a new custom view:
- Right-click anywhere in the Views pane and click New. The New View dialog displays.
- Enter a name for the new view.
Select whether the view is a Personal or Shared view.
Note: You require administrative rights to create shared views.
- Click Filter.... The Edit Filter dialog displays. You can personalize your view using the available filter options. When complete, click OK, then OK.
The new custom view is added to the Views pane. Right-click the view and click Save to keep your settings. If you created a shared view, right-click the view and click Publish to share it with the Data Store users.
