Configuring crossWeb

The appearance of the modules in crossWeb can be customized freely. For example, entire window panes can be moved, and columns can be hidden and resorted. Below, you will find the illustration of different customization options:

Customizing the position of window panes

The window panes in the crossWeb modules can be adjusted by repositioning them. To do this, select a window pane and drag it to the desired position within the module by keeping the left mouse button pressed.

Example

In the following example, the position of the two window panes of the Tasks module is to be swapped.

cWeb_Aufgaben_fensterbereiche-tauschen

Proceed as follows:

  1. Place the mouse pointer on the blue bar of the window pane you want to move. A icn_cWeb_fenster-verschieben icon is displayed instead of the mouse pointer.
  2. Keep the left mouse button pressed and drag the selected area toward the desired new position.
  3. The new position of the window pane is displayed in the form of a blue dashed box.
  4. Release the left mouse button. The window pane will be moved to the new position.

Customizing the Size of Window Panes

Apart from the position, you can also customize the size of the window panes in the crossWeb modules. To do this, select a window pane and place the mouse pointer on the bottom edge of the window pane. The icn_cWeb_fenster-groesse-anpassen icon is displayed instead of the mouse pointer. Keep the left mouse button pressed and adjust the size of the selected area by dragging it up or down. The height of the window pane will be adjusted automatically.

Showing and Hiding Window Panes

The content of the window panes in the crossWeb modules can be displayed or hidden. For this purpose, the window panes can be opened and closed.

To expand or collapse a window pane, simply click the icn_cTerm web_einklappen or icn_cTerm web_ausklappen icon.

Changing Column Order

The order of the columns contained in the tables of the various crossWeb modules can now be freely customized, e.g. in order to move relevant columns to a visible position. In order to move a column, select it and drag it to the desired position within a table by keeping the left mouse button pressed.

Example

In the following example, the order of the columns in the My Tasks module is to be changed.

cWeb_meine-aufgaben_spaltenreihenfolge-aendern

Proceed as follows:

  1. Position the mouse pointer over the (green) head of the column you want to move. Keep the left mouse button pressed and drag the mouse away from the current position of the column. A copy of the column head – marked with a icn_cWeb_spalte_position-nicht-moeglich icon – is displayed at the current position of the mouse pointer.
  2. Move the mouse pointer to the desired new position of the column. As soon as a possible position for the column is reached, the icon changes from icn_cWeb_spalte_position-nicht-moeglich to icn_cWeb_spalte_position-moeglich. Moreover, the new position of the column is indicated by the arrow icons icn_cWeb_spalte_position-pfeil-runter and icn_cWeb_spalte_position-pfeil-hoch.
  3. Release the pressed left mouse button. The column will be moved to the new position.

Showing and Hiding Columns

Columns that are contained in the tables of the crossWeb modules and that you do not need can easily be hidden (and of course shown whenever you need them).

Proceed as follows in order to show or hide table columns:

  1. Click the icn_cWeb_spaltenkopf_filter icon that appears when pointing the mouse on a column head.
  2. Then select the item Columns from the drop-down list. All available columns of the current table are listed.
  3. You can hide and show the individual columns by activating or deactivating the checkboxes.

Adapting the Sorting of Columns

The tables in the crossWeb modules can be sorted on the basis of a specific column. For example, tasks can be sorted by their priority or by the respective task type.

To change the sorting of a table, simply click the green button of the desired button. The sorting will take place on the basis of the selected column. The sorting is displayed by means of the icn_cWeb_spalte_sortierung icon in the column head.

Moreover, a column may be sorted in ascending or descending order (e.g. from A to Z or from Z to A).

cWeb_meine-aufgaben_kontextmenue_spaltensortierung-anpassen

To change the sorting of a column, simply click the respective column head. If you click the column head again, the sorting will be reversed.

Alternatively, you can change the column sorting by clicking the icn_cWeb_spaltenkopf_filter icon. The icon appears when pointing the mouse on a column head. Subsequently, you can select the desired sorting from the drop-down list.

Filtering Table Contents

Especially if a table in the crossWeb modules contains a large number of projects, it may be useful to restrict the view to certain projects. This can now be done by filtering the contents on the basis of the project names.

Proceed as follows to perform the filtering:

  1. In the corresponding column, click the icn_cWeb_spaltenkopf_filter icon that appears when pointing the mouse on a column head. Then select the item Filter from the drop-down list.

    cWeb_aufgaben_kontextmenue_filter

  2. Enter a search string.

    cWeb_aufgaben_kontextmenue_filtereingabe

  3. The contents of the columns will automatically be adapted according to the filtering.

    The activation of the filter is indicated by an icon in the table head and the activated checkbox in the drop-down list. The filtering can be cancelled by deactivating the checkbox.
