Column Operations


Click Fields to control the visibility of a field.


By default, all system fields will be hid. However, you can tick Show system fields to make them visible.

Column positions can be re-ordered. Open Fields menu, and re-order fields as needed by dragging and dropping the drag icon.


Hide / Unhide Columns

To hide / unhide columns, open Fields menu, tick checkbox to keep the column visible, untick checkbox to remove it from the view.


You can create different grid views with different fields shown in each view.



Sorting allows you to order contents alphabetically (A → Z) / (Z → A) (OR) in ascending / descending order. NocoDB allows nested sorting. You can choose column fields & order in which to apply nested sorting. Lookup, Formula, Nested Data are also supported in Sorting.

You can also group several filters together using Filter Group.


Enable NULL and EMPTY Filters

NULL filters (is null & is not null) and EMPTY filters (is empty & is not empty) are hidden by default. If you wish to filter out either one only, you may enable Show NULL and EMPTY Filter in Project Settings.


Otherwise, we can use Blank filters to filter out cells with NULL values and EMPTY values.
