About this task

All fields on the activity list display in alphabetical order by default. You can change the order that fields appear on the form by using the Configure available fields option in the activity formatter.

Use the activity filter in UI16 and UI15

Use the activity filter to show or hide fields that you want to display activity.

  1. Open the filter by clicking the activity filter icon (Activity filter icon) in the Activity header.
  2. Select the fields for which you want to display activity.
    Fields are added or removed dynamically as the selection is made.
  3. Click the activity filter icon again to close the filter.

Use the activity filter in legacy: UI11

Use the activity filter in UI11 to show or hide specific fields.

  1. Open the filter by clicking the show/hide filter icon (Show/hide filter icon) in the Activity header.
  2. Select the fields for which you want to display activity. Fields are added or removed dynamically as the selection is made.
  3. Click the show/hide filter icon again to close the filter.
    A filter icon appears on the Activity header to indicate that a filter is in effect.
  4. Click the filter icon to toggle the filter on (display only the selected fields) or off (display all fields).
    When the activity filter is on, the filter icon has a blue border. The activities list shows the history of only those fields selected in the filter and the Activity header indicates how many of the available fields are selected, such as (4 of 5).

    When the activity filter is off, the blue highlight is removed from the filter icon and the form shows all available fields. If all fields are checked, the filter icon is not displayed.
