Custom tables provide an easy interface with which to view device information. After it has been configured, a custom table can be exported as a comma-separated variable (CSV) file, which can be opened by most spreadsheet or word processing programs. To create/edit a custom table:
From the All Tasks menu, select Custom Tables, Create/Manage.
Click New. (To edit an existing custom table, click the table's name.)
Give your table a descriptive name.
From the Available Columns list, select the items you want to include in the table. (You can use the Ctrl or Shift keys to select multiple items.)
Click the arrow to move the selected items into the Columns In Use box. You can then use the up and down arrows to arrange the columns. For example, if you wanted Duplex Option to be the first column of the table, you would move it to the first position in the Columns In Use box.
Choose how to sort the rows of your table. For example, if you choose Color from the Sort Custom Table By list and then click Ascending, your table will list color printers first.
If you want your custom table to be a 'frequent task', click the Frequent Task box in the upper right corner. Your custom table will be available from the MarkVision Professional toolbar or whenever you right-click a device. (Note: You can also select your custom table by going to View, Custom Tables, <your custom table>.)
To view a custom table:
Select the devices you want to appear in the table.
Select your custom table from the All Tasks menu, or go to View, Custom Tables, <your custom table>. Your custom table appears.
To print your custom table, click Print. To export your custom table, click Export.
You can edit a custom table while you are viewing it as follows:
Reorganize columns by dragging them to the desired position.
Click a column heading to sort by that column.
Right-click the table to save your changes or reset to the default column and sort order.
Note: These changes do not change the table settings as defined in the Custom Tables task; they are unique to each user account. To change the default column and sort order, the Custom Tables task has to be used.
