Business value

Users need to quickly and easily adjust the interface to get a better view of their business data. As users switch between business and productivity apps, consistency in fundamental interactions, such as resizing columns, keeps the learning curve low.

Feature details

Adjusting the width of any column just got easier. Without having to start personalizing, you can drag the border of any column header to resize it. Similar to Microsoft Excel, you can double-click the border (AutoFit) to automatically size the column so that the caption and value of all columns on the screen are displayed efficiently.

Similar to other UI personalization, your changes roam with you no matter which device you sign in to.
