Configuring a Table widget

A Table widget displays a portion of Alloy Navigator data. This widget allows users to view important data (for example, overdue Incidents) on the dashboard and easily open the details of any Alloy Navigator object this widget contains.

You specify properties of a new Table widget or modify properties of an existing widget of this type using the Table Widget Properties window.

NOTE: For details on initial steps of widget creation or modification, see Creating widgets or Modifying widgets.

Title - the widget title, which will be actually displayed in dashboards

Allow to minimize widget - specifies whether users can minimize this widget.
