Creating Tables

    Tables are used to define the data that you would like to store in your Projects. You can create new Tables and amend existing Tables at any time.

    Tables can be created in Gridfox using either the View Editor or the Explorer. Both methods are described below.

    Once you have created a Table, you can add Fields to it.

    The View Editor allows you to make quick changes to your Project configuration and your View layouts.

    To create a new Table using the View Editor, when you are viewing your Project, open the Create menu in the bottom left and select the Table (Grid) option.

    This will allow you to create a brand new Table with a Grid View on top.

    Enter a name for your Table and click the next arrow.
