      Description

      I'm confused by the grouping related menu options of the capabilities UI. It doesn't appear very intuitive.

      You can Group by This Field by clicking the menu item "Group by This field" no matter what the state of the UI.

      You can also group by this field by clicking "Show in Groups" when the UI is not already grouped.

      Clicking "Show in Groups" when already checked (grouped by *any* column) ungroups the UI.

      I have no idea if the ultimate plan was to supported nested groups, but that could be the only logical explanation I have for above atm.

      Rather than the above, suggest:

      • provide an ungroup menu item (not a checkbox menu-item) to ungroup ONLY when the UI is already grouped.
      • Keep the existing Group by this field menu item, but only show it when not grouped by the selected column.

      I can understand the need to 'ungroup' the table display, but the current menu options don't make it very obvious how to get there.
