Table Display and Data Controls

eNETEmployer provides many useful features to help you work efficiently with the program's data tables. This functionality is provided through a variety of icons, buttons and keyboard commands. Use this help page to learn more about the various features that control the data tables throughout the program.

Filter Icons   filter payroll rows

These icons are used to control the filtering and display of table rows so you can display data according to your needs. For example, you may use the filter option to view only a subset of data for a page that offers a large amount of rows.

Sort Icons   sort payroll rows

These icons are used to control the sorting of table rows. This can be useful when you have a large amount of rows and wish to work with in an alphabetical or numerical manner. Note: All sort functions are cleared when you exit or reload the page. To retain a sort order indefinitely, set the desired sort order, and then create a new Customized View.


Expand / Collapse / Group Icons   expand, collapse and delete payroll rows

These icons are used to control the viewing of hidden (collapsed) table rows. This can be useful when you have a large amount of employees (that would require many rows to be displayed on the screen) but wish to work with one employee's details at a time. Note: These icons appear only for certain pages where the expand/collapse row functionality is required (e.g. the Employee Earnings screen, the Bank Accounts screen, etc.).


Edit Icons   Payroll row editing icons

These icons are used to control how changes are processed for each row.

Automatic Saving - If you have a number of unsaved changes, remember that eNETEmployer will automatically save them each time a different row becomes selected. This can occur any time you click on a new row, use the mouse to move up or down to a new row, or if you select a command button that causes the current row's selection to be updated (e.g. New, Toggle Edit, Customize View, etc.).

This is important for users who prefer to "queue" numerous changes before they perform a Save operation. While queing multiple changes may save a minimal amount of time between each and every change, it does increase the chance of data loss due to browser connectivity or other factors. If you are working with a large database and prefer the queued approach to data saving, we suggest that you balance it against a practical approach where data changes are saved more frequently in order to mitigate data loss.


Text View Icons   payroll view icons

These icons are used to control the size and attributes of text in the data tables. For example, if you are working with a smaller laptop screen, you can use these features to increase the size of your table text.


Row Display   row display and selection icons

These controls are used to modifying the table row display and for displaying menu options on each screen. These features can be particularly useful when you are working with tables that contain many rows.

Shoe menu example

Use the following section to learn more about the various menu commands that are available.

Action Menu

Edit Menu

Global Edit Mode - If the Edit Mode cell is activated in the Options screen, the preceding Edit commands will not appear in the contextual menus.

Selection Menu

Expand / Collapse Menu

Navigation Menu

Selection Mode   row display and selection icons

These controls are used for controling your method of choosing (highlighting) rows and will only appear if Selection Mode has been deactivated from the Options page. Selection Mode is a global setting that applies to all pages.

Edit Mode - This mode is distinct from Selection Mode, however the two features function in tandem. Edit Mode refers to the state where a row is highlighted and all of its various controls (e.g. cells, drop down lists, checkboxes, etc.). are ready for editing. This mode can be useful in certain cases such as during the payroll setup process when you are constantly entering large amounts of data on each screen and want to save the time of having to explicitly activate Edit Mode for each row you encounter.

Edit mode can be activated in a number of ways. Depending on your preference, this mode can be applied to individual pages, the current session only, or to all pages at all times.
