List View

List view presents you with a list of related items.

Some lists in AR5 are results tables sortable by column, some are collections of cards, and some include filter panels that allow you to control what appears in the list. Some lists have no sorting or filtering options at all.

In most cases, clicking an item in a list will take you to the details page of the item you clicked. In some cases, however, clicking on an item will take you to another list, or allow you to work with the item right there in the list.

In some lists, the color of the title text on each of the list items reflects each item's publication status. In such a list, a blue title indicates that an item is published, while a grey title indicates that an item is unpublished.

Types of Lists

Simple Lists (Fig. 1)

Simple list screens in AR5 are very often directories, used for CMS navigation. For instance, clicking Content in the primary navigation will bring you to a page with a list of items available in the content menu. Some items in navigation lists are links to other navigation lists, others to details pages, and still others to different kinds of lists. 

Cards (Fig. 2)

Whenever collections of cards appear without the characteristic tabs found on a details page, you have a list of cards. Examples include the Subjects page (from the primary nav, content > subjects) and the Rules page (users > rules).

Tables (Fig. 3)

Tables (marked by multiple rows and columns) often support sorting by column. Some include checkboxes on each row to enable batch operations with the results. Very often a filter panel accompanies a table (see below). Examples include a form records list (the records tab on a form's details page), and the Articles page (from the primary nav, content > articles).

Filter Panels

Filter panels, when available, appear just above the content that they filter, whether that content is displayed in a table (as with form records), or a list of cards (as with articles). They have blue title bars with white disclosure arrows on them. When a filter panel is present, it must be opened and engaged with before any results will appear below it.

Filter panels provide different filtering criteria depending on the type of content being filtered. Here's a sample of different filter panels and their uses: on the events screen, use a range of dates and select which calendars to display events from; on the articles screen, select which journals to display articles from; on a form records screen, select which form fields to display values from in the records table.
