Grid Views

In Gridfox, Grid Views allow you to see a list of items within a Table. These grids of data can then be sorted, searched and filtered.

TIP

Every Table that is created will be given a Grid View by default.

You can configure a Grid View using the View Editor, which can be access at any time by clicking Edit Current View in the bottom left corner.
