The Trial Details page is divided into two parts. The upper part displays information for that trial. The bottom part (Classes Datasheet) displays the Classes that are a part of that trial.
The first column in the Classes Datasheet is the Class ID which is a unique identifier automatically assigned by the system when the Class is created. This ID is a hyperlink and clicking on it will open the Classes page with that Class displayed. When navigating to a Class in this manner the open and closed filter mentioned below is disabled.
