Tips and tricks
Search looks at visible columns and it is not case-sensitive.
Filtering looks at all fields and it is case- sensitive.
Filters can be permanently saved as a view and can include expressions such as ranges.
|Filtering can be adjusted by using powerful filter characters. Some of them are:
E.g. @man looks for text that matches man and is not case-sensitive
? One unknown character
E.g. Hans?n looks for text such as Hansen or Hanson
|” An exact character match
E.g. ‘man’ looks for an exact character match
* Indefinite unknown characters
E.g. *Co* looks for text that contains ”Co” and is case-sensitive
<>Not equal to
E.g. <>0 looks for all numbers except 0
E.g. 1200|1300 looks for numbers with 1200 or 1300
E.g. 22..24 looks for the dates from the 22nd to the 24th of the current calendar month; P8.. looks for information for accounting period 8 and thereafter
E.g. %mycustomers looks for customers in the My Customers page on your Role Center.
