User (Custom) filters

Custom (user) filters help user with quick navigation on object grid. There are four types of filters, divided by colours:

  • Role filters
  • Status filters
  • Custom (shared) filters
  • Tag filters

Role filters

Role filters are automatically filled by system according to used roles in workflow (workflow steps). Only roles that are used in any requests and current user has granted rights for them are shown.

Status filters

Status filters are automatically filled by system according to used statuses in workflow (workflow steps). Only statuses that are used in any requests and current user has granted rights for them are shown.

Custom filters

Own filters can be now used to filter requests in object overviews. This functionality works in My Tasks, All Tasks, My Items, All Items overviews.

User can easily subscribes custom filter already created by another user, copy filter or creates a new one. The main difference between those is that subscribed filter can be modify only by user who creates the filter. Copying and creation of filter creates new instance of filter that you can customize.

Tags representing workflow statuses, roles and user filters can be hidden via Manage filter settings accesible through the cog symbol under the search button.

Tag filters

Tag filters are proper real time data filters. They are automatically generated by Xeelo according to data provided in requests. The reason why they are so fabulous and powerful is that they are created according to data of particular object line. They are automatically adjusted within the requests data.

At the picture above, there is an example shown. The tag filter is set to object line called Title, therefore user can see all possible tag filters according to data saved in this object line. So from the first request is ABC, from the second request is Title A, from the third request is Title B etc.

Tag filter has to be enabled for object line in Admin section
