Customize the Table view


Navigating the Forest Admin interface is pretty straightforward, and it won’t come as a surprise that our pagination is equally straightforward.

Browse several pages

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).

Change the number of records per page

By default, 10 records are displayed per page. However, you are free to change this number if needed.

The number of records per page affects your loading time. Choose it wisely!

To do so, you must use the Edit Layout mode, which is accessible through a button at the upper left side of the Forest Admin interface, then adjust your number of records per page at the bottom right.

We recommend not having too many results on a single page for performance reasons.


Searching is just one way to be faster at finding the desired data. Forest Admin also allows you to use filters to sort your data.

Sort your data

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.

Add one or several filters

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).

If you notice there is no filter (3): either you have disabled filtering on this field, or it is a Smart field.

Once opened, the filter management dropdown will look like this:

The list of filtering options available depends on the nature of the selected field.

To change the logic between conditions, simply click to toggle between AND and OR.

Click Apply filters for them to be taken into account.

Once applied, you can save filters as segments (learn more about segments).
