How to: Recover columns in the Webadmin View after they have all been removed

Applies to:

Webadmin Views (all versions)


Webadmin views allow you to customise the information displayed by adding or removing columns.  This is done by hovering over the column header drop down arrow:





Here you can select columns and add or remove what you need using the tick boxes.

Then select Reset all preferences:




You will then need to log out and back in for it to refresh the views columns.
