Table Features
There are several table features that can be used to better view, collaborate and analyze the data in Cinchy tables.

Table of Contents

1. Views

When you first create a table, a default view called All Data will be created for you under Manage Data. Cinchy builders can create different views for users to manage their data in Cinchy where Views can be filtered and/or sorted according to the requirements.
To switch between views simply select the view from the left navigation toolbar under Manage Data (Image 1).

2. Filters

Users can filter data in a view for one or more columns. Filters persist when users navigate from one view to another. The number of filter criteria is identified against the filter icon (Image 2).

Display Columns do not persist. When you move away from the View, any modifications will be lost.
