This tool allows Curator users to configure the following tables according to their preferences: The Release Table, Item Health Table, Queued Kanban Table, Release Events Table and Performance Table. These tables can now be configured as to which fields are displayed, the order in which they are displayed and the manner in which they are sorted.
