With advanced filtering, you can filter by any data field included in the report. You can use filters and filter groups to further customize your results.
Filters groups essentially act like parentheses in an equation.
To add a new filter group, simply start by clicking the + Add Filter button. After clicking on the + Add Filter button, you can select the data field by which you would like to filter.
You can also add a filter to a filter group by clicking on the ➕ icon next to an existing filter.
Between each filter and filter group, an And/Or operator will need to be added. In order to change an operator, simply click on the operator and select whichever one you desire.
In order to save your selected filters, you will need to click the Save Report button.
For shared reports, users other than the creator apply new filters, but these filters cannot be saved to the report.
Operators inside of a group must all be the same and operators outside of the group must all be the same.
Filters for text fields are case-sensitive.
