The filters allow to reduce the elements displayed on the overview pages to a clear number or to find a specific element.

  • The Use full-text search is displayed above the table in the overview page and searches the displayed columns for the entered text.
  • Further filters are displayed next to the table and can be configured freely to a large extent.

Filters are created with Add filter or +Add new filter. The filter is configured in the block that appears, which can be expanded and collapsed and whose order can be changed using Drag&Drop. An expanded filter is removed with Delete filter.

The following properties are set for a filter:

  • Filter by: The fields of the types Text, Selection from list and User selection are available, as well as the meta fields Workflow status, Creator, Last editor.
