The Grid is widely used throughout FoundationFootprint™ to provide generic user-friendly features for the consistent presentation of information relating to your organisation's facitilities and inventory as well as viewing and editing tools.
The Grid presents information in a standardised framework of columns and rows with appropriate headings and summary bars as applicable. The Grid provides a suite of generic tools for users such as sorting, filtering, grouping, editing and exporting which are particularly useful for the efficient management of large volumes of information across multiple facilities and inventory items.
