Improve interactions with data in tables (8.3)

Updated on May 3, 2021

Add personalization functions to table toolbars to provide a consistent design throughout the user interface and help users interact with data more efficiently.

Pega Platform™ generates the toolbar automatically for an optimized table whenever you enable any of the following features:

  • Field-based grouping
  • Column visibility toggle
  • Row height adjustment
  • View refresh

If you expose the toolbar, you can also include the Save view option and custom actions that the users need and use frequently.

By using the toolbar, users can adjust the display of data at run time and, as a result, improve the quality of their user experience. The toolbar also presents a summary of the operations, to help control the view of data. In the following example, the data is grouped by Light and Available, and the Group icon on the toolbar indicates that the two fields are in use.
