The display is used by applications such as institute websites in CMS and RWTHcontacts, in order to clearly show the structure of your organization.

To achieve this, all entries can be grouped by captions and can also be sorted under the respective captions.

Changing the Order of Captions and Elements

You can us drag-and-drop to change the order of captions and elements within a caption.


It is not possible to move elements directly from one caption to another. They must instead be removed from one caption, before being added to a new caption.

Removing elements from a caption

Click on the delete symbol to delete captions and elements within.

Sort alphabetically (4)

You can click the button "Sort alphabetically" to sort the elements within a caption into ascending alphabetical order. The elements are initially grouped by type and then sorted alphabetically within their types. For example, comments would be grouped in a block and in alphabetical order, followed by a block of objects, followed by a block of people. Individual elements can be moved as usual after being sorted.
