Views and Panels
The AtroCore system comes with a user-friendly configurable interface that includes a number of views and panels, where entity records are displayed and managed.
Views can be shown in the main or pop-up window. They consist of the panels, which can be configured by the administrator. Usually these are structured in a way to provide you with key information on the record management.
The following actions are available for entity records directly out of the box:
|Actions||Available on Views|
|View||Detail view, list view, quick detail view (small detail view)|
|Create||Create view, quick create view|
|Edit||Edit view, quick edit view, detail view via in-line editing|
|Remove||List view, detail view|
|Mass update||List view|
|Follow||List view, detail view, edit view|
|Unfollow||List view, detail view, edit view|
|Add relation||List view|
|Remove relation||List view|
If you want to make changes to some entity (e.g. add new fields, modify its views or relations), please, contact your administrator.
The list view is a default view page that appears when any entity is selected in the navigation menu, where the records belonging to this entity are displayed. It has its own layout, which can be configured by the administrator.
The list view page shows a table of records with main fields configured for each entity and includes: - navigation menu (1); - taskbar (2); - breadcrumb navigation including the page name (3); - search and filtering panel (4); - records list (5).
Here you can change entity records order in the list by clicking any sortable column title; this will sort the column either ascending or descending. Please, note that the default order of entity records is predefined in the Entity Manager. To change it, please, contact the administrator.
A total number of entity records may or may not be shown on the list view page:
By default, the total number is not displayed. In order to see it, please, contact the administrator.
Mass actions are to be applied to several (or all) selected entity records, i.e. records with set checkboxes. To select all entity records, click the checkbox located on the left of the
Name column title. If the number of entity records exceeds one page, use the
Select all results option from the actions menu:
The following mass actions are available in the AtroCore system:
- Remove – to remove the selected entity records.
- Merge – to merge the selected entity records.
- Mass update – to update several selected entity records at once. To have a longer list of fields available for mass updating, please, contact your administrator.
- Export – to export the desired data fields of the selected entity records in the XLSX (Excel) or CSV format.
- Follow – to enable tracking of the changes for the selected entity records.
- Unfollow – to disable tracking of the changes for the selected entity records.
- Add relation – to relate the selected entity records with other entities (or entity).
- Remove relation – to remove the relations that have been added to the selected entity records.
To modify the mass actions list, please, contact your administrator.

By default, the following actions are available for all entities: - View – to go to the detail view of the record. - Edit – to go to the detail view of the record in the edit mode. - Remove – to remove the selected record.
To modify the single record actions list, please, contact your administrator.
Small List Views
Small list views are panels and pop-up windows with data on the entities related to the given entity record, shown in the main window always together with the detail view. Each entity may have as many related entities as needed in accordance with the administrator's configurations.
The following actions are available for the small list view panels: - General actions – applicable to all records on the related entities panel: - Refresh – to refresh the related entities list on the panel; - Create – to create a new record for the related entity; - Select – to create a relation between the entity record, which is opened in the main window and the entity record, which was chosen in the pop-up window.
Please, keep in mind that choosing some record in the pop-up window will reassign it to the entity record, which is opened in the main window. The previous relation will be dropped, if the relation is one-to-many.
- Single record actions – applicable to each record of the related entities separately. The list of actions here is usually the same as on the list view for this entity.
The detail view page appears when the entity record name is clicked in the corresponding list of records. It has its own layout, which can be configured by the administrator.
The detail view page shows detailed information about the selected entity record and all its relations and includes: - navigation menu (1); - taskbar (2); - breadcrumb navigation including the page name (3); - actions and tabs panel (4); - record details, where detailed information about the currently open entity record is displayed (5).
The detail view page may also include:
