NXT Web And Database Views: Side By Side

For NXT users, there are two views: “Database View” and “Web View”. Though pulling information from the same database, both available interfaces offer different ways of viewing your information. Some users may work in one view while others will work between the two. The table below outlines the differences between interfaces.
