Data Manipulation in Standard Views

You can open any desired Standard Salesforce views in the Views screen and perform data manipulation seamlessly using the following operations:

  1. Reordering of fields

  2. Conditional Formatting

  3. Grouping

  4. Layout

  5. Editing records

  6. Other changes in record values

All the changes can be performed directly upon the Standard Views, and they will remain saved in that particular view for future use.

Automatic creation of Custom View

A new Custom View is created only while performing the following operations:

  • Add/Remove fields

  • Filter

  • Sort

By performing any of the above operations, the Custom View is created automatically, so you need not take the hassle of doing it manually. Once the Custom View is created, a toast notification is displayed, as shown in the image below:

The default View Name can be changed by clicking Edit in the toast notification.

Column Header Introduction

Column Header is a field that shows the title name for each column.

  • Each Column Header has a drop-down from where you can take the respective actions for that column.

  • If any field is locked (non-editable) in Salesforce, it will also be locked in the Wave View. Its Column Header will show the lock icon and the records will be non-editable in this column.

When you have added any fields using Lookup, the Column Header will show the number of its Lookup levels.

Hover on the lookup level number to know the Lookup details. For example, in the image below, the About Me field is added using five lookups: PartnerAccount >> CreatedBy >> Account >> CreatedBy >> About Me.

Column Header Drop-down

Each Column Header has a drop-down as shown in the image below.

When you click on any Column Header drop-down,

  1. A search section will open where you can search any row using the search terms in the drop-down. This section will show search fields, checkboxes, picklist, etc., based on the Column Type. However, the purpose will be to make your search quick and easy.

  2. More Options: You can perform column specific operations using these options.

  • For example, let us search the Billing State column in the Accounts object for a specific value: New Jersey.

The Grid screen will display the records containing the Billing State as New Jersey. And the drop-down will be highlighted with blue color after performing any column level filter for easier visualization.

  • Click on Clear All Filters if you wish to clear the records obtained using the Column header drop-down search filter. This will return you to the original view of records.

More Options enable you to perform the following actions for each column.

  • Freeze columns

  • Insert a column

  • Remove a column

  • Sort

  • Column grouping

  1. Use Freeze columns to freeze and unfreeze the current column. You can freeze the column at the extreme left or extreme right. When you unfreeze the column, it will be placed in its original place.

  2. Use Insert field to insert a column in your Spreadsheet Area.

When you click 'Insert field', the Object columns (in this case, Opportunity columns) pop-up will open. It will show the list of all possible and available clumns to insert from. The columns available in the current View will be shown as the selected ones.

  • Search the column using the search bar or select it from the list.

  • Use the DataType drop-down to see the fields having any specific data type.

  • Please use Refresh Object (in this case, Refresh Opportunity) to sync the Opportunity Object's data with Salesforce.

  • Click OK.

  • The selected column(s) will be added, and a New Custom View will be created. When you add new field(s) for the first time in any Standard View, the Views screen will automatically create a New Custom View and a toast notification will be displayed.

  • You can provide a suitable name and description to this new view by clicking Edit in the toast notification.

  1. Click Remove field to delete the current column.

  2. Use the Sort with ascending arrow to sort the rows in the ascending order (smallest to largest, 0 to 9, and/or A to Z).

  3. Use the Sort with descending arrow to sort the rows in descending order (largest to smallest, 9 to 0, and/or Z to A).

  4. Use Column grouping to group multiple columns together. Please follow the steps shown in the image below to create a column group.

  1. Click on Column grouping. The Column grouping screen will appear.

  2. Select the columns you wish to group together.

  3. Select the color to denote the group.

  4. Select the column group style (optional).

  5. Add a tooltip (optional)

  • Click OK.

You will see the columns in a group with colored headers. Use the expand and collapse icons to expand and collapse the group columns.

You will see the Tool Tip hovering over the expand and collapse icons if you add them.

  1. Use the + icon to add another column(s) at the end of the Grid View. Follow the same process as explained in Point 2.


The Lookup feature enables you to:

  • See and update the account information from the Grid View columns in a single click

  • Change the relationships between two entities in a single click. For example, if you wish to change the account name for a contact or vice versa, you can do it in a single click.

Please find the information that will help you to use the Lookup feature.

Where it is available, the Lookup feature is denoted by its icon in the column header, as shown in the image below.

  • In each field of such column, you will see the icon when hovering.

  • The data matter in such a column will have a grey background.

You can use Lookup to change entity relationships. For example, let's change the account name for the Dickenson Mobile Generations opportunity.

  1. Hover over its respective account name field and click on the Lookup icon.

  2. A pop-up will show the list of all account names. Scroll down or search for the new account name and click on it.

  3. The account name for the Dickenson Mobile Generations opportunity will be changed.

  4. It will also perform the other applicable changes.

  • The lookup feature will also enable you to view the entity details. For example, let's open the details for Account Name.

  1. Instead of clicking on the Lookup icon, click on the account name written in a grey background.

  2. The account details pop-up screen will open.

  3. You can edit the details and save them if required.
