Because everyone approaches data entry differently, the columns in the Event List can be customized to suit your needs.

Note: If you chose to optimize your program for planning in User Preferences, this will be called the Task List.

Note: Changes made to Event List will be reflected in the Chronology Timeline.

Customizing columns

Columns in the Events List are customizable. The width and order of columns can be changed, and columns can be renamed or deleted. New columns can also be added.
Please note: Some columns, because of their integral role in the timeline, can be renamed, but not removed. If renamed, they will retain their original functionality, regardless of the name assigned. These columns are: Event Name, Start, End, Duration and Category.

To rename a column:

  1. Right-click on the column you wish to change and select Rename.
  2. Enter the new name and press Enter on your keyboard.

To change to order of the columns:

  1. Click on the heading of the column you wish to move and drag it to its new location.
  2. Repeat with other columns, as desired.

Note: The Checkbox and Linked Files columns are static and not adjustable.

To change the width of a column:

  1. Double-click on the column boundary to increase/decrease the width to the size of the longest text in the column.
    Rest the pointer on the column boundary you want to move until it becomes a double headed arrow.
  2. Drag the boundary until the column is at the desired width.

To insert or delete a column:

  1. Right click on the column you wish to delete, or on the column next to where you wish to insert a new column.
  2. If inserting a column, select Insert Before or Insert After, according to your preference. Name the column and press the Enter key.
  3. If deleting the column, select Delete.

Sorting the data

Once data is entered, it can be sorted according to any of the column details, in ascending (A – Z) or descending (Z – A) order.

To sort the data by column:

  • Click on the column heading you wish to sort by. This will sort the list in ascending order. If you wish, you can click again on the same heading to sort in descending order.

Tip: An arrowhead (up or down) in the column heading indicates the sorting column and direction of the sort.
