On EazyTouch, starting with TransLution version 5.7, you have significant control over how grids are presented. You can select font size, which columns each user or user group sees, how the grid is filtered or grouped, as well as the foreground and background colours of all the lines.

Using the Layout button on the grid overlays in EazyTouch you will open the following form:

This form allows you to define the font size, the visible columns on the grid, as well as the column to filter by. It also allows you to decide which column will define the line colours and what the line colours should be. Finally, you can then give either individual users or user groups access to a specific layout.

The Benefits

In addition to allowing users to see for more data in a format that suits their requirements, the real benefit of layouts is that they make TransLution far easier to manage across large implementations. If you have multiple sites you can have a single overlay defined for all the sites and use layouts to limit the data that users see. Gone are the days of creating multiple views and multiple overlays to allow different users to see the same data. Not only will this allow you to speed up implementations, but the ongoing maintenance of these changes will also be significantly reduced.
