Administrators can change the grid style for all the grids in a model; end users can change the grid style for the grid they are working with.

The default style for a grid on a dashboard is Classic, but it’s easy to change.

  1. On the dashboard element menu, select Format > Grid Style.
  2. Select ClassicClearRuled, or Striped grid styles.

The grid style of the dashboard element is immediately updated. If you’re an end user, any change you make will persist only until you exit the dashboard. If you want to keep your changes you could save the dashboard with a different name.

The global grid style is the default style used when publishing new grids to a dashboard. Administrators can change the default style (Classic) to a number of alternative styles.

  1. In Model Settings, select Dashboards.
  2. On the View menu, select Global Default Grid Style and select from ClassicClearRuled or Striped.

Changing the global grid style will not change the style of existing grids that have already been published to a dashboard. To change the style of existing grids, visit each grid and follow the instructions in the CHange an individual grid style section above.

This is the default style for all grids unless the global style is changed or grids are changed on individual dashboards.
