Administrators can edit views on the Customize page for the view. Click Customize Page on the view, or access the page through Manage Views.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. In the Views grouping, click Manage Views.
  3. Select the view, and click Edit.

Add resources to the view

  1. On the Customize page, click + next to the column that you want to add the resources.


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

  2. Select resources in the middle pane, and click Add Selected Resources.

    You can limit offered resources by criteria in the Group by list, or search for a resource in the Search box.


  3. Use the arrow icons next to the columns to move resources between columns.


  4. Click Done.

    The view should now be populated with the resources you selected.

  • Resources already in your view are not marked in the list. You can add a resource on a view more than once.
  • Some resources may require additional configuration.
  • Several options on the Add Resources page are added to the list of resources for a page, but the actual configuration of a given map, link, or code is not added until the page is previewed.

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.


Divide content into subviews

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.


When you are done with your changes, click Preview, and then click Submit.
