One of the typical elements on most Easy Projects screens is a filter. It is a handy tool in database management as it allows narrowing or widening, as appropriate, the scope of search while looking for a record or a group of records. Filters in Easy Projects enable you to find an item quickly and effortlessly. All you need to do is to define a scope of your search.
By selecting values in various filter fields, as well as choosing the appropriate radio button, you are able to specify a scope of search which would meet your needs.
Apart from drop-down list boxes you use to select required items or a range of those, the Filters tool has ‘Reset’ and ‘Apply’ buttons, as well as ‘Customize’ hyperlink control. Their functions are summarized in the table:
|Reset||Resets the filters to their default values|
|Apply||Causes settings you have selected to take effect|
|Customize||Opens the customization panel to add and manage custom filters.|
To search for open projects only, select ‘Open’ in Status.
NB: In the status drop down in the filter area for activities, the status "unfinished" is set by EP to show you all activities which are not completed or equivalent to completed.
