Column Importance in Responsive Tables

By default:

  • Key fields have high importance in list reports.
  • Other columns have the importance of none and are handled like columns assigned medium importance.

You can change the level of importance.

The importance assigned determines whether a column is displayed in all screen sizes, and in the pop-in area for a responsive table when screen space is limited.

Importance

Screen Sizes Where the Column Is Displayed

When the Column Moves into the Pop-In Area

Low Large First, starting with the right-most column
None (Default) Large and Medium After low importance columns
Medium Large and Medium After low importance columns
High All Last

 

When at least one column is hidden from the screen based on its importance, the table toolbar displays the Show Details action. After the user clicks Show Details to display the column, the action changes to Hide Details.
