Modify Columns

When using Crew Companion, you can Resize, Show or Hide columns, Reorder and even Sort the columns. Keep in mind that you may need to do this once for each area (All Trips, Open Trips, My Trips, etc.) to get it initially set up.

How to Show or Hide Columns

The Customize Current List dialog box is divided into two sections: Hide and Add columns and Sorting.

To access the Customize Current List dialog box:

Show a Column

Hide a Column

Reorder Columns

Once you have the columns added to the Selected columns area, you can choose to Move Up or Move Down each individual item. In the Customize Current List dialog box, click on the item in the Selected columns area and then click Up or Down until it is in the desired location. Then click OK.

Sort Columns

In addition to Showing and Hiding columns, you can also sort the columns in Ascending or Descending order to your liking. You can choose to sort each column individually or by multiple columns.

There are three methods by which you can change the sort order of a column:

To Sort Columns From The Customize Current List Dialog Box

To Sort Columns With The Right Mouse Button

Click the right mouse on any column heading and choose from Sort Low to High or Sort High to Low. Using this method you can only sort by one column at a time.

To Sort Columns By The Column Heading

You can choose to sort by only one column or up to five columns by clicking on the column heading. When you click on a column heading and see the “arrow” appear this will indicate that you are sorting that column. If the “arrow” is pointing “down” this is considered an Ascending Sort. If the “arrow” is pointing “up” this is considered a Descending Sort.

To Sort By One Column

To Sort By More Than One Column (Multi-Sort)

Note: By default the columns will appear in Ascending order. To change this order to Descending, hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard and select the column heading again.

Resize Column

You can resize a column heading by putting your mouse pointer on the line that separates the columns. When your mouse turns into a double ended arrow, hold down the left mouse button and drag either left or right to change the size.
