Lists A list displays a set of records from a table. Users can search, sort, filter, and edit data in lists. Lists may be embedded in forms and may be hierarchical (have sublists). The list interface consists of a title bar, filters and breadcrumbs, columns of data, and a footer. Each column in a list corresponds to a field on the table. A response time indicator ( in UI16 and UI15, in UI11) may appear at the bottom right of some lists to indicate the processing time required to display the list. There are two versions of lists available. For more information, see Comparison of List v2 and List v3. Figure 1. Record list List features and actions The list interface consists of a title bar, filters and breadcrumbs, and columns of data. Each of these components provides features and lets you act on the list and the displayed records. There are two list versions: List v2 and List v3. Figure 2. List v2 view features, menus, and actions Figure 3. List v3 view features, menus, and actions Hierarchical lists Hierarchical lists allow users to view records from related lists directly from a v2 list without navigating to a form. Note: Hierarchical lists are not supported in List v3. Tables that have hierarchical lists enabled always display in List v2. Lists can have sublists in a hierarchy that can also be accessed in list view. To expand or collapse the related lists on a record in a hierarchical list, click the arrow () beside the reference icon. Figure 4. Hierarchical list Administrators can enable hierarchical lists for a table. For more information, see Enable a hierarchical list. Detail rows Detail rows, when enabled, appear below the field row for each record and display the value of a specified field. For example, the detail row might display the short description for each incident in a list. Detail rows support the same functionality as fields, including links, editing capabilities, and access to the context menu. Note: When a field is designated as the source for the list detail rows, the system hides the list column for that field. Figure 5. Detail rows Administrators can enable detail rows and add them to v2 lists (UI15 or later required). For more information, see Administer detail rows. Detail rows are not supported in List v3. Comparison of List v2 and List v3There are several differences between List v2 and List v3.List title menuThe list title menu contains several options related to the list.Column headingsColumn headings appear at the top of each list column.List fieldsFields display data and provide certain functions.Action check boxesAction check boxes enable you to perform actions on one or more items in a list.Use embedded listsSome lists may be embedded in forms.Customize the number of list rows per pageYou can customize the number of records, or rows, to display on each page of a list. The default is 20 rows per page.Activity streams in list viewIf UI16 or UI15 is enabled, you can stream live activity information for all records on the current list.Search a listYou can search a list to find information quickly. The list title bar includes options for searching the list. Administrators can enable text searches for any list.Sort a listYou can quickly find information in a list by sorting the list. The method that the system uses to sort a list depends on the type of record in the sort column.Grouped listsGrouping aggregates a list by a field and displays the record count per group. Grouping can help you find data quickly by organizing and providing a summary of search or filter results.Filters and breadcrumbsA filter is a set of conditions applied to a table to help you find and work with a subset of the data in that table.Methods for list editsUsers can edit data in lists using various methods.Personal listsUsers can create personal lists to customize which columns appear and the order in which they appear. Personal lists modify a specific list view according to individual preferences.List v3 split modeIn List v3, split mode lets users view a list and form side by side, in a split pane layout.
