The default view of what record information is displayed in your Papertrail account can be a little limited depending on how many record fields you have filled in and what you want to use the information for.

When producing a report in Papertrail, the information shown on the report will be based on what is displayed on your screen. Choose this information before producing a report.

You can add or change the different record field headings at the top of the screen to display as much or as little information as you want to.

Once you have navigated to the folder or searched the information you want, click on the small column icon in the top right corner, between the star and sort icons.

This will display a list of all the record fields to choose from in alphabetical order. Scroll down to view the entire list.

You can now untick anything you don't want (this will disappear from the view as you do it) and tick anything extra that you want which will appear as you select. 

Once you have chosen all the fields that you need to be displayed, click off the list or on the column icon again to remove it from view.

This view will be applied across all your folders. If you want to see different information in another folder you will need to repeat the process above.

The view that you choose is personal to you - it will not change for other users on your account. They will need to choose their own headings to suit their needs.
