Amending columns in a Data table

Users can move, edit, lock and delete columns from a data table using the column header menus.

Click on the arrowhead to reveal the menu and click the relevant option.

  • Move column: change the order of columns in the table

  • Edit: Edit the column name, units, formula as required. Note: you cannot edit a measurement column, to amend delete the column and create a new one.

  • Lock/unlock column: Lock the column as read-only when you have finish capturing data for all animals to prevent further changes.

  • Delete: Delete an entire column from the table.

Note: for measurements columns clicking delete removed the column but does not delete the measurements from the animals as these are automatically saved, adding this column back into the table will also display all of the measurements for the animals on this day.
