Chintaro Search Screens have functionality that enables you to customise the way the screen looks, so that you can create multiple different views, or reports, for the same screen. These views can be saved just for your own copy of Chintaro, or organisation wide, depending on the preference you set. 


Saved Views appear underneath the blue functions on the Manage screens, EG on the Manage Properties screen below:



How to Use Different Saved Views


If there are no previously saved views, the Saved Views field will be blank. Views that have been saved previously are listed in the drop-down in Alphabetical Order.


To force a particular view to the top of the list add the '*' asterisk character to the name of the view.


To display a view that has already been saved, click on the drop-down box and select the name of the saved view.  The screen will refresh according to the settings of the view.
