Detail View

Edit/View the content of a record

Details of a record can be viewed and modified in the detail view. There are several views (tabs) available:

  • Columns, display the structure data in labels and values.

  • Sections, show a list of sections with unstructured data.

  • Notes, display an editor for quick documentation.

  • Versions, display a list of versions.

  • Activities, display a list of activities.

  • Visitors, display a list of visitors.

  • Permissions, display a list of permissions.

For each table, you can select the view that should be opened by default. By doing so, all records from that table will be opened with the selected view. You may always want "Notes" to be opened by default for experiment records, and "Columns" to be opened by default for sample records.
