Column Filter


Most columns in the grid have a filter button to narrow your results:




Some columns will have additional filters available:

Column filters only work on a per page basis, e.g. if you have three pages of data and apply a column filter, that filter only applies to the current page. If you are looking for filters that will affect all data regardless of what page you are on, use the Search Field, Quick Filter, or Queries.

Quick Filter


There is also a Quick Filter function to filter your Labor Items:

You can change what fields display in the grid via the Layouts tab. There are some preset layouts buttons and you can create your own Custom Layouts:

Each layout has specific columns. Although you can resize and move columns, your changes will not be saved for next use. Custom Layouts are the only way to get the exact look you want each time you open the Labor Explorer.
