Each grid consists of rows and columns. The first row displays headings that identify the contents of the column. In some cases, there may be a secondary heading when the column contains a subset of records. For example, the Enrollments column in the Groups Dashboard has a secondary heading for each enrollment status (i.e., Active, Warn, ODue, Cmpl).
