How to… Use Quick Filters

0

This “How To” guide outlines how you can apply pre-defined Filters for Tasks and Categories via the “Analyze” and “Task” Ribbons.

Maps can be filtered based on properties assigned to Branches, such as Action attributes, Resources, Categories, etc.

Quick Filters are available in two locations: The Analyze Ribbon and the Task Ribbon.

How best can I use the Quick Filters?

ANALYZE:

The Analyze Tab allows you to Categorise branches. Subsequently, the Quick Filters available via the Analyze Ribbon allow you to filter for Branches with certain Categories assigned.

  • Ensure the Analyze Ribbon/Tab is selected
  • Open the Quick filter menu
  • Select a Category from the list
  • Branches that do not contain your selected Category will be greyed-out. (You can select “Hide Non-Matches”).

Note: The list of Categories displayed when you open the Quick Filter is “dynamic” i.e. it is based on Categories assigned in the Map. You must add Categories to the Map before the list will contain any.
