Viewing objects in the object view
The object view lets you see all object details, including comments, attachments, and the history of changes. You can also view and modify object attributes, see all issues connected to an object, or view its references. All in a nice and friendly way.
Accessing the object view
You can access the object view in many ways, the easiest one being just clicking the object key (displayed as breadcrumbs when viewing the object):
- Click Insight > Recent objects, and select any object.
- Select any object in the schema and click its object key (displayed in breadcrumbs above the project name)
- Search for objects and click the object key.
Customize the object view
If you have the permission to edit the object schema, you can customize the object view to only display the information you need. For more info, see Customizing the object view layout
