Next, you are able to select from several display options including:
Toggle the ability to inline edit directly from the Grid View widget
Optionally display the report toolbar (to Group, Sort, Filter, Spotlight, or Find data)
Whether to allow users to open the record and view all its details
The option to limit the number of records displayed in the Grid Widget
Drag the widget window to adjust the adjust its size. You can also choose to minimize the widget or view it in full screen mode.
The Grid View Widget has plenty of customization options, including: setting highlight color, renaming the Widget, adding a description, and collapse by default. You can also choose to have the widget collapsed by default (useful when you have a large number of widgets displayed on a single Dashboard).
