Each table has its own pre-set presentation. A table shown on the screen usually contains only some of the available data. It is possible to select only those items you are interested in by using the filters.



Sometimes, the data selection is presented above the grey line. This means only one item is presented in the table. By dragging blocks beneath the grey line, you will be able to select more options from the list.
