Map Filters

Date Filter

 

To facilitate quickly changing the date range for a map report layer, a date filter is available on the Map page frame. The date filter is restricted to the facility chosen for the dashboard. To change the report start and/or end dates, either manually enter the date in the date text box or click on the calendar tool to select the desired date.

Advanced Filtering

 

The advanced filter allows further refinement of the search parameters. Users can create and save map filters through the advanced filter. Selecting the Filter Setup button on the Map page frame opens the Filter Setup window, where users can configure filters, select multiple filters, and group filters.

 

A list of saved filters can be viewed using the Filter Col-Map-Filter-Icon control on the map. Clicking the icon will display a search box, a clear filter button, and a list of any saved filters. Users can select these filters as desired. The filter selection will be applied to the map layers.

Col-Map-Advanced_Filter-Widget

The user can select filters in the list and observe the map changing for each filter selected. Each filter in a group is inclusive inside its group and each group is exclusive of other groups, as follows:

If the user selects two filters within the same group that contradict each other (e.g., somefield = 1 and somefield = 2), the features matching both filters will be shown.

If these filters are in different groups, the features must match both filters to show.

 

The Clear Filter button will remove all filters and display everything.
