Filter Management

Filters are used to customize reports, allowing you to highlight any particular subset of the database. You can save your custom filters, allowing you to reuse them in other reports. You can then view, delete, and change the Private or Public status of your custom filters from this interface.

Click the Filter Management option from the Administration tab. You can see a list of the existing filters, allowing you to modify any of them. All administrators, not just the creator of the filter, can edit, delete, or change the visibility of any filter in this list.

Click the check boxes in front of a filter to use the Delete, Make Public, or Make Private buttons. You can also specify a search string to narrow down the list of filters.

Note: If you delete a filter that is a part of an existing report, you might change the interpretation of that report and generate a larger than expected listing.
