The FlexyView

What is a FlexyView panel?

At the center of most every EZ Suite tool is a proprietary grid-style interface known as the FlexyView.
On this page, you will find an overview of the different ways to access the many options available for everything from grid configuration to display formatting, as well as the core functions you'll use when working with your data.



The example above shows a FlexyView panel with two grid groupings. Grouping data by category is one of many data organization features available in the FlexyView.

In this case, you can reveal any hidden icons by clicking the arrow button located at the end of the toolbar.
