RTA Web - Customizing Master List Columns

Users have the power to customize columns in many areas of RTA Web. Customization provides the ability to minimize or maximize the type of data that is visible in the master list as well as sort and filter where available.

This document will focus on the following:

Filtering Columns

 Click here to expand...

Columns that are able to have a filter applied will be identifiable by the filter icon in their header.

  1. When the filter icon is visible, simply click the icon and make your filter selections from the available fields and click OK

  2. The displayed list will refresh with the requested filter in place

  3. Filters can be removed using the same process above

If the filter icon is blue, that indicates that a filter is in place for that column and you may need to remove it or change it to see additional information.

Using the Filter String

A filter string appears at the top left of the search lists to allow users to easily identify filters that are in place on the list as well as further customize the filters.

Clicking the Clear link in the upper right will clear all filter settings on the list

Below will walk through how to use the filter string.

  1. Click the filter string to edit filters

  2. Use the + to add new filter conditions

  3. Use the X to delete set filter conditions

Adding Filter Conditions

Add new filter conditions for your list by following the below steps:

  1. After clicking on the filter string, click the + icon in the Filter Builder window

  2. Click Add Condition

  3. A new filter condition line will populate for the user to then set conditions

The line consists of three category areas. First is the data column which the conditions will be applied. Second is the condition setting for that column. Last is the data value to be applied.

  1. Click the Fac and select the data column to apply the filter conditions to

  2. Click the condition setting (Contains) to change the filter condition. Use either Contains, Ends With, Equals, Does Not Equal, Is Blank, Is Not Blank, or Is any of

  3. Click the Enter a Value option and enter the value relevant to the line condition

    1. For example, perhaps the line is (Fac - Equals - 1)

    2. This means that the list filtering is set to show only line items where the facility is equal to facility 1

  4. Multiple filter options can be applied

    1. For example, in addition to the filter to only pull items in Facility 1, the user can use the add button again and also add a secondary filter for a specific department and so on

Removing Filter Conditions

Use the Clear button while in the search list to remove all filters in place or open the filter string by clicking on it and clicking the red x next to a condition line or filter needing to be removed.

Sorting Columns 

 Click here to expand...
  1. Click the column header to sort ascending or descending

  2. When clicking the column header, an arrow will appear and will denote how the information is being sorted.

    1. The arrow pointing down means the items are in descending order

    2. The arrow pointing up means the items are in ascending order

  3. Each column sort acts independently of the others.

    1. For example, sorting by year gives you the chronological year order for an asset and if you then apply the sort for the “make” column, the sort switches and the year will no longer be chronological and instead the list will now display in alphabetical order by make field

Adding Columns

  1. Click the Master List triple dot icon in the upper right corner

Creating Preset Views

Users may want to have different variations of the master list that display certain items in certain orders for the purpose of viewing or exporting. This can be done by using presets. Presets allow for multiple variations of a master list to exist and the user can toggle between them depending on the view that is needed.

Creating a Preset

  1. Using any of the methods or combination of customizations such as filters, sub-filters, sorting, adding/removing columns, or rearranging columns, customize the list to display as needed

  2. Click the three dots to expand the list menu in the upper right corner

  1. Click Presets

  1. On the banner that opens at the top, click Save As

  1. In the Save Preset As box, add the following:

    1. Give the preset view a title (This will display as a preset option in the future to choose from when viewing the list)

    2. If wanting the created preset to be the default view when accessing the list, check the “Set as Default” box

    3. If the created preset needs to be available to all users company wide who have permission to view that specific area, check the “Set as Company Wide” box

    4. Click Save

To access various presets that have been saved for a particular list, visit the presets banner on the master list by clicking the list menus using the three button icon in the upper right and selecting presets. From there, users can use the drop down in the preset banner to select the preset option desired for viewing.

Deleting a Preset

It may become necessary to delete a preset that has been created and saved.

  1. Access the master list where the preset is housed

  2. Click the list menu icon (three dots) in the upper right corner

  1. Click Presets

  1. Using the dropdown of the preset banner, select the preset to be deleted

  1. Click Delete

  2. Click Delete in the confirmation window

The delete function cannot be undone. Once a preset is deleted, it cannot be recovered and will need to be rebuilt and saved.
