Filters can be created so you can quickly return to a favorite view. If you want to quickly view tasks for a given client or tasks that meet certain priorities or status, a saved filter allows you to return to that view quickly, making task management more efficient.
Note: In the example below, we’re filtering on Tasks. You can also filter on the home page calendar, reports, milestone, projects, clients and invoices.
Save a Filter:
- First, customize the current view by selecting the desired filter options and clicking on the ‘Filter’ button
- Next, click on the link titled ‘Save this task filter’ at the very bottom of the listing
- Give it a name and click ‘Save’
- Now that the filter is saved you can return back to this filter by expanding ‘Saved task filters’ and clicking on the saved filter you want to run
Delete a Filter:
- First, load the filter by clicking on it from under ‘Saved task filters’ (See image above)
- Then, click “Delete this task filter?” next to the filter title
Replace an existing filter:
Currently saved filters cannot be edited, but you can modify the filter, delete it and save it again with the same name by following the steps below. A quick demo is provided as well.
- Run the existing saved filter you want to change
- Delete the filter by clicking on the “Delete this task filter?” link
- Select new items to filter on and click the “Filter” button
- Save the filter, naming it the same as the one that was just deleted
