Toggle Inventory and Container Views 🧪

Inventory Beta is available to all existing and new Enterprise customers, and will be available to Community users in the near future. Learn more at the RSpace Inventory Hub.

It is possible to toggle between different item views, based on which view suits your needs best or which one you prefer.

The available views are:

  • List view shows the contents as a list, with global ID information
  • Tree view enables you to navigate a nested hierarchy of items
  • Card view is useful for viewing image, location, content, and modified details at a glance
  • Grid view enables you to view items as located in a two-dimensional grid
  • Visual view enables you to view items as located on an image

The different views are described in more detail below.

View types

The left-hand panel and all containers support list, tree, and card views.

Additionally, grid containers support grid view, and visual containers support visual view.

List

List view shows the contents as a list, with their global ID information. It is useful for performing bulk actions using the item checkboxes (see Edit a Sample or Container), and for viewing search results. The second column of list view is customisable: see Search Inventory.

Tree

Tree view enables you to navigate a nested hierarchy of items. Click on a container to expand or collapse its contents; clicking on an item also opens it in the right-hand panel.

You can use the Navigate To Container button to zoom your view into that container's contents. You can then use the breadcrumbs to move up the container hierarchy.

Card

Card view is useful for viewing image, location, content, owner, and modified details at a glance. Clicking on a card opens it in the right-hand panel.

Clicking on the three dots on the top-right of a card opens the context menu:

Grid

Grid view is only available for grid containers. It enables you to view items as located in a two-dimensional grid. You can read more at Select Items in Inventory and Customise Axis Labels for Grid Containers.

Visual

Visual view is only available for visual containers. It enables you to view items as located on an image. You can read more at Select Items in Inventory.
