Editing options for tables

From ZEuS-Wiki english


You will find that a lot of information on ZEuS is provided in tables. Examples include, amongst others:

  • lists of applicants in the application management system,
  • tables with student data in the student management system or
  • lecture tables in the course management system.

All of these can be customised to fit your individual needs. Not only can you show or hide individual columns, you can also set the standard number of rows per page to the amount you prefer. Detailed information is available below.


There are a lot of menu items where you can find tables with editing options. So this point is relevant for different roles in ZEuS.

How to

Open your table and click on the Edit table button, which will open a pop-up window. Make and save your changes and return to your table, which will now show your custom settings. Please follow these simple steps.

Step 1

Open your table, which will be in standard mode, typically showing all available columns.

You can specify a standard amount that you can customise whenever you create a new table entering a number in the Default Amount of Table Colums field.

If there are more hits, the table will contain as many rows as the amount you specified under Row count (Max:300) (cf. item 5). Confirm by hitting the “Enter” key on your keyboard.

The table now consists of those columns you selected in step 2 under Choose columns.

The small arrows to the left and right of the headers allow you to move individual columns in either direction. Click on the arrows in order to move your column left or right or to switch places with the next column (cf. item 3).
