  7. Like an Excel spreadsheet, if you hover the mouse between the two columns (ex. type and capacity), you can change the width of the column to allow for more grid results to appear.

To make another filter, re-set your filter options by selecting "Clear All" at the top and then selecting the options you would like in the new filter. Click the disk again, and make another view filter that you feel you will use the most (ex. Central Campus ATC Rooms).
