CI HUB has 3 different ways to display a result.

  • List view
  • Grid view
  • Detail view

Content that can be displayed in the different views can be configured by the user. The Listview can be sorted by Value. To do so the clumn can be selected. The Grid view will also follow this sort order. All displayed thumbnails can be changed in size for more space or reading comfort within the list view.

We reserve the right to make changes at any time without prior notice. The entries are not considered binding.
