Throughout the web interface often you see table lists of items, for example, sensor or device lists. Table lists are also available in the overview pages of Libraries , Maps , Reports , Notifications , and Schedules , as well as in Logs and Tickets . All these provide common functionality. Depending on the type of content in the list, tables show various information in their columns for each object.

On certain overview pages, such as for sensors, tickets, and similar sensors, there is also an inline filter available directly above the table. The filter options depend on the current page.
