Live Column Configuration

This configuration displays all the columns in a flat view. By default these columns are sorted by their position in the grid.
The advantage of this configuration is to allow you to reposition the grid columns manually from within the Grid Manager.

Moving columns

To reposition any column in the grid, go to the Grid Manager and choose Live Column Configuration.
Within this list, simply drag and drop any column name to a new position.

The column being moved will be placed after the target column. In the example screenshot, the column 'Mail Owner' is being dragged down the list and dropped on the column name 'Access'.
Therefore in the grid, 'Mail Owner' will be repositioned to the right of 'Access'.

Note Hidden columns:

A column with the Is Visible? option unchecked means that the column is not displayed in the grid, and therefore cannot be moved.

Note Moving multi-header columns:

In case of multi-header columns (ex. replicationEZ), the category names can be repositioned by simply dragging up/down within the list.
This will also reposition the column along with all of its sub-columns within the grid.

Practical case of moving columns: Position consideration

In this example we will move one column to a new position and see the consequence on its column's Position.

Initially the column Database Filename has a Position: 3.
The column Quota space left has a Position: 6.

When we move the column Database Filename to Quota space left, we can see that its Position changes.

So now the column Database Filename has a new Position: 6.
The column Quota space left has a new Position: 5.

There are no position numbers assigned for hidden columns since they are not displayed in the grid.
