Custom columns

Managing patient columns
To add a pre-configured column to the patient table, click the "Add unselected pre-configured custom patient column" link in the setup area. You will get a list of patient columns that are available, but not yet added to the patient table. Click the column you wish to add, and confirm using your password.

Custom columns that already have been added to the patient table can be edited, resorted or removed (the latter only in case it's not a HGVS standard column). These options are available from the "Manage selected custom patient columns" link in the setup area.

The overview shows the selected patient columns which have been added to the patient table and some settings like the column header, column width and the form type.
To change the order in which the patient columns are shown in the variant overviews, click the "Change column order" button. A new window will pop up where you can move columns around by selecting one and using the up or down buttons next the the list. Click the "Change column order" button to save the changes and close the window.

Clicking on one of the entries in the overview will provide a detailed view and links to manage the custom column.

Edit column display settings
You can make changes to the custom column, mostly the appearance. If you're unsure what the fields mean, check out the creating new columns section.

Reset column to current defaults
This will reset the column to the default settings, forgetting all your changes you may have made to the column's appearance. Please note that you can edit the default settings, too.

Delete column from patient table
Columns that are not HGVS standard, can be removed from the patient table. Please note that any data you have stored in a column will be lost permanently if you remove it from the patient table.
