Purpose

This document provides a comprehensive overview of the Filter and Settings panel and the Tagging feature.

Introduction

Common Settings include filtering options, and settings to customize the view.

Filters allow for quick limitation of viewed data to relevant entries. By applying filters in multiple columns, it is possible to narrow down a large dataset to find a particular entry or to discover any abnormalities, missing data or missing actions.

Example

When looking for a particular hostname (that includes a number in domain name) in Assets view, choose Hostname in the Type column and enter that number in the Name column to narrow down the search results. Additionally, a scanner ID can be submitted to ensure a direct search result.

Customize each view by adding or removing the columns and by applying filters. Each view has a Filter and Settings panel. To access it, click the Filter icon in the bar spanning along the left edge of the table. This displays the Filter and Settings panel.

Inside the Filter and Settings panel, it is possible to add or remove columns,  apply filters, save sorting order, and column width and make it persist on your account.
To save your preferred settings, click on the Save icon found in the Settings tab of the table settings panel. 

Requirement

 It is assumed that the reader has basic access to the OUTSCAN/HIAB account to access the Portal.


Selecting the Filters

To access the filtering, click the Filter tab on the left side of the screen. A list of available columns is displayed:


Use the search field to quickly find the column name of choice in the list of applied filters. The Clear icon next to the search field, restores the search phrase and lists all columns unfiltered.

The Clear filter button to the left of the filter field clears all of the filters applied to the table to mitigate the need of manually going through all fields that have filter applied and resetting them one by one.

The checkbox next to column name toggles the visibility of the column inside the table.


Applying Filter

To apply a filter enter the filtration string either on the top of the column or in the Filter tab.

Note

A filter can be applied in the background. This allows for enabling only columns of interest while filtering by any columns, without the need of specifically having them visible in the table to enable filtering. Pay extra attention to the Filter counter beside the column name to see how many filters are applied to the table.
