Information in this table can be ordered by any of the columns by clicking on the headings. You may also wish to collapse columns you do not need, eg. the user picture column. This can be done by clicking on the icon located under each column title. Another option for increasing the table's visible width is docking the left margin blocks 'Navigation' and ' Administration' to the menu bar. This can be done by clicking on the icon for each block. When docked to the left menu bar the menu can be opened by mousing over the title and all menu bar items can be returned to their original position by clicking on the icon at the bottom of the menu.
