Finding scripts

By default, the Results grid displays all scripts you have access to, ordered by most recently completed. You can filter and sort to reorganise the Results grid.

Filtering scripts

Some columns in the Results screen can be filtered. You can identify these columns by the Search icon and Filter icon . The different icons correspond to the different types of available filters.

You can combine filters across multiple columns

Sorting scripts

Select a column header to sort the cell data alphabetically or numerically in ascending () or descending () order. Select the column header to toggle between ascending and descending order.

Alternatively, you can right-click on a column header to Sort Ascending or Sort Descending.

Fixing columns

To fix columns in place in in the grid, right-click on a column header and select Fix To the left or Fix To the right.

Select Unfix to return columns to their original place in the grid.

NOTE: Fixing columns only affects your view of the grid, not the views of other users. Fixed columns remain fixed when you next return to the Results screen.

Resizing columns

Click and drag between column headers to resize columns.

NOTE: Columns are resized on a user-by-user basis and do not affect the view of other users.

Changing pages

WARNING: Navigating to another page in the Results grid deselects tests.

If there are more than 50 scripts, scripts are organised into pages. Each page contains 50 scripts.

Use Next and Previous to navigate between pages or input a page number to navigate to a specific page.
