Selecting Situations

There are a number of different ways to select or tag Situations. You can click the checkboxes in the far left column to select each Situation individually:

To select multiple Situations at once, hold down Shift and then click the checkboxes of the Situations you want to select. If you select one Situation using this method and then click another Situation further down the list, all Situations between the two will also be selected.

Another method is to left-click and drag down to highlight the Situations you want to select and then right-click to select them and open the Tools Menu (also known as the Right-Click menu).

Moving View Columns

You can change the width of each column by hovering your mouse cursor over the column order and clicking and dragging it to increase or decrease the width.

To change the order of the columns, click the column title cell of the column you want to move and drag it to a new location in the top row. Two green arrows will indicate if the move is valid:

You can also configure the order in which the Situations  are shown by clicking the column title cell to rearrange them in ascending or descending alphabetical or numerical order.

For example, click the 'Severity' column to arrange the Situations in ascending or descending order of severity.
