Collapse all cells at once

By default, most tables/sheets in the Requirements webpage are collapsed. You can only collapse cells if they are filtered as a group.

If you have expanded one or many objects to review what data is collected by clicking the triangle on the left-hand side of the screen, you can collapse them all at once by first clicking on the “Grouped by 1 field” button.

To collapse all cells at once, press the “Collapse all” button. Once pressed all expanded cells will collapse.

Expand a specific cell

Expand cells using Keyboard Shortcuts:

You can expand any individual cell to show its contents in greater detail. When any cell is selected, you can use a keyboard shortcut, press “Shift” and “Space” at the same time to open an expanded version of the cell.

While the specific cell is expanded, you can use your keyboards arrow keys to navigate up, down, left, and right to review the other cells.

Expand cells without using Keyboard Shortcuts

You can expand any individual cell to show its contents in greater detail. When any cell is selected look for the diagonal up and down arrow in either the top right side of the cell to open a larger version of the cell.

Expand a record

Each record (or row) can be expanded to show all of the information related to that record vertically rather than horizontally. When viewing a record in this view, the information will show as a pop-up within your screen so you can review it as a full-size page.

You can accomplish this by clicking on the “diagonal up and down arrows” on the far left-hand side of the row in question. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut, the “space bar” key anywhere in the row to expand the record.

To go to the next record, use the up or down key on your keyboard or click the “up” or “down” arrow at the top of the pop-up to move to the next record.

Group by feature

Add Group By

To use the group by feature, click the “Group” button at the top of your screen.
