When the Toggle Switch is turned on, your report changes to the new styling and formatting and you have the option of applying filters right in the column headers. If there are any hyperlinks in your report, these will be highlighted in blue and will act the same as they did without the toggle turned on.
One of the most exciting features of the new table report is the ability to resize columns, an improvement that has been sought after by most end users for years. While the original table report expands to make data visible, it
Also, included in the Toggle Style are the report saving options: Save Report, Save Report As and Revert Report. These options are also found at the top right with the Toggle Switch is turned on. These options will enable the use the save the report or revert back if a report is saved accidentally without having to return to the original state, and reverting changes can be done without refreshing the entire report.
If the new table style isn’t for you but you still desire a different viewing experience, Quick Base offers three universal visibility settings: Relaxed, Normal and Condensed. These settings can be accessed by going to your Preferences and choosing the experience of your liking.
