Configure List Window

Tap the Options blue_white_chevron.png chevron on the title bar to see options available for the window. Most will include a Configure option, which allows you to choose the details and how they show up on the List window. For example, if you want to see the most recent items at the top of the page, locate the relevant Date section on the Configure window and set the Ascend option as OFF.


If you make changes to the Configure window, tap the Done button at the upper right to save your selections.

NOTE: The selections on the Configure window reflect fields in the module; therefore, they are different for each List window. See Appendix B: Window Options in mobileTMA GO for iOS for more information about Options on the chevron menu.
