Search for a specific task

To search for a specific task, such as transaction numbers or sample names, enter your search terms into the search bar, then select the magnifying glass ( Search_icon.svg ) or press enter/return on your keyboard to submit your query.

Apply filters

Filters help identify groups of tasks. You can use the filters in isolation, or select multiple filters to further narrow your search parameters.

To apply filters

    The data table reflects your selection(s) immediately.

Select Cancel within a filter menu to discard your selections and go back to the audit plan.

To clear applied filters from the table, select Reset filter.

Use the task table

The table on the Audit plan page can be reorganized as needed.

Sort the contents of a column

Select a column header to toggle sort its contents in ascending or descending order. The darker triangle indicates the sort order.

Reorder columns

Add and remove columns

Open the Columns menu on the right side of the table and check the box next to each column you want to display.

Uncheck a box to remove it from the table.

Pin a column

Pinning columns ensures they will stay in view when scrolling horizontally.

Open the menu on the column header you want to pin and select Pin Column, then choose the pin location on the table: Left or Right 

Select No Pin to remove a pin from a column. Once unpinned, you can move it around as needed.
