You can modify views to suit your needs, including adding and changing columns, moving resources, and creating subviews to help you manage the information that appears on the view.

This example shows how to create an Interview Details subview and add interface-specific resources. To make the view more manageable, the example adds a limitation that includes only objects relevant to the New York IT Department group.

Add columns

Resources on views are divided into columns.

On the Customize Page, click Add New Column.

You do not have to add resources here. You can click Done, and drag resources between the columns on the view.

Change column width

To change a column width, position the cursor between the columns and drag the column border to achieve the appropriate width.

Move resources on views

To move resources within a column or between columns on a subview, drag the handle at the top of the resource to the new location.

If there is too much information on the view, group and divide resources into subviews.

  1. On the Customize view, select Enable Left Navigation.

    To open the Customize view page, click Settings > All Settings > Manage Views. Select the view, and click Edit.

  2. Click Add Tab.
  3. Type a name for the new tab, and click Update.
  4. Select an icon, and add resources.
  5. Click Done.

    To save space on the views, click the double arrow button to minimize subviews.

Limit objects on the view

 

You can limit the monitored elements that are included in a view, which limits the contents of all the resources on the view. You can also limit some resources by using a SWQL query on the resource.

The example belows shows how to limit a view to display only monitored elements owned by the NY IT Department.

The view now only displays objects defined by the limitation.

  1. On the Customize view, click Edit in the View Limitation area.

  2. Select a type of limitation, and click Continue.

    File:Success_Center/New_Articles/NPM-Getting-Started-CHM/090/030/AddNewView_selectLimitationType.png

  3. Configure the limitation as instructed.

    File:Success_Center/New_Articles/NPM-Getting-Started-CHM/090/030/AddNewView_selectObjectsforLimit.png

  4. Click Submit.

Now you have created the New York IT Department view. To make it accessible for users, you must first add it to a menu bar, and assign the menu bar to the users. You cannot see the view without making it accessible first. See Customize menu bars.
