Edit Your Column Layout


The Appraisal Desktop provides an easy way for you to customize the columns you see in the Files view.  By customizing the column layout in the Files view, you can reduce the number of times you have to open a report just to look up some information about it, like the amount due on the report. To change the items displayed in the file list…

  1. From the Appraisal Desktop, right-click anywhere in the file list and choose Edit column layout.
  2. Select the desired information from the Available Fields pane on the left. Double-click the item to add it to the Displayed Fields list, or just click Add.

  3. To remove a field, double-click it in the Displayed Fields list, or select it and click Remove.
  4. Use the Up and Down buttons to re-position the fields in the list.
  5. If desired, select an item in the Displayed Fields list and enter a new title for the column in the Title box.
  6. Set the initial width of the column by adjusting the number in the Width field.
  7. Click Sort by this field if this is the field by which you’d like to initially sort your reports.
  8. Set the initial sort direction to Ascending or Descending by selecting the appropriate option in the Options box.
  9. If you’d prefer not to see the column headings, un-check the Show column titles box.
  10. Click OK to save your settings.

Once your column layout is set, you can modify the column order and width by clicking and dragging the title header of the column. Likewise, you can resort the list by clicking the title header of any column.
