Automatically display table results when application is displayed

Sometimes you may develop a custom Maximo application that shows a list of entries in a table. If the application is used frequently and the result set to show is not huge, it could be useful to automatically display the table content without the need to hit enter or click on the search icon.
Here is a little tip that may solve this little usability issue.
Open the application in the Application Designer and select main table, find the ‘Start Empty’ checkbox and uncheck it. If it is already unchecked you may need to first tick and then untick it.

That’s all.

  1. Is this still an option in Maximo 7.6? I recall seeing in Maximo 7.5 for Work Order Tracking, but I don't see it in Maximo 7.6 as an option. Maybe it moved, is hidden, or somewhere else now?
