Using Data Grids in Pulse

Data grids in Pulse are organized, easy-to-navigate tools to help you view, manipulate, modify, sort, and filter important data. Data grids serve as instant reports that allow you to customize the information you would like to display and export.

TIP: Customize and export information in data grids for reporting purposes.

Each EXPLORER and REPORTS tab in Pulse contains a default data grid.

Return to the default display at any time by clicking the Restore Default Table Settings icon.

Use the Column Chooser icon to personalize the column display.

TIP: Try adding filters, searching, or sorting data for additional specifics.


Once you have your columns customized, filtered, and sorted, you can export your selected data to an Excel spreadsheet using the Export all data icon.

Use the checkboxes to select specific rows for exporting.

Clear filtered details at any time by clicking the Clear All Filters icon.

Quick Navigation Tips

IMPORTANT: Before using any data grid, best practice is to Clear All Filters to speed up navigation.

To prevent lag when loading results in a data grid, set the results per page in the bottom-left to fewer than 200.


TIP: Right click on any hyperlink to populate a drop-down menu of options.
