Group and Sort Objects

To get a better view of the objects in views and lists, you can use a number of functions like filtering, grouping, and sorting.

You can group objects to display them in a specific way, for example, by their priority or name. You can also add sub groups by adding new columns to a group.

You can change from descending to ascending sort order by using the small arrow in the column heading. You can also sort alarms on, for example, state or priority by adding columns that contain the information you want to sort by. You can sort on several columns by pressing SHIFT and then sorting a new column. The sorting is done in the order in which you added a new sorting.


You sort by alarm state and then priority. First of all the alarms are sorted by their state. If several alarms have the same state, they are sorted by priority.

Group and sort order changes to the List View are saved when you close or leave the list. You have to manually save other changes to panes and Views.
