Personalize Data Tables for Optimum Use

Changes you make on each page will remain that way for future visits by 'saving state' so you don't have to keep adjusting them.

What Data is Displayed

Depending on your monitor size there may be more data in a table than will fit on your screen. There are two options for that.

1) Additional data is automatically collapsed if it will not fit on your display. When you see the green "+" you know there is more data. Click it to expand the row to view it.

2) You can select columns to Show/Hide. Hiding a column removes it from the table. Removing columns you don't care to have displayed is another way to fit all the data on the table without it collapsing.

Rearrange the Order of the Data Columns

Want to put the Median Finish column next to the Average Finish? No problem. Just drag it to the place you want it.
