By clicking on a column’s header (1), you will sort the data by descending then ascending order, depending on the type of data in this field. An arrow (2) will appear in the header, showing you that this column is sorted.
You can filter your list of records by clicking at the very end of the search bar on ‘Filter’ (1). Or you can also click on the filter icon in column headers as a shortcut to pre-fill the property you wish to filter on (2).

Navigating the Forest Admin interface is pretty straightforward, and it won’t come as a surprise that our pagination is equally straightforward.
Very large collections can’t be displayed on a single page. Where this is the case, you will be able to check the number of records in the collection at the bottom right side of the Table view (1). At the bottom in the middle, you will be able to browse through the different pages of the collection (2).
