View Type - How to Create a Table Viewer View Type


About the Table Viewer View Type in On2Air: Amplify

The Table Viewer View Type allows you to view a list of your records in a table. You can view all records in a table or choose a specific view. In the viewer, you can display or hide fields to show only the fields that matter most. You can add multiple Table Viewer View Types in a single layout, customizing each one to display specific fields.
