The donor list can be filtered for a few different reasons. One is
to narrow down the list by criteria to find specific records. Another is to
give you a count of donors, based on your selected criteria.
As an example, if you wanted to know how many schools are classified as donors, you
could select "School" from the Donor
Type drop-down list. Click the "Filter List" button.
You will see the total records label
above the list has changed and gives you a total count of all schools who are
classified as donors. The list has also changed, and displays only schools.
To filter the donor list, click the "Filter List"
The Filter List panel
will open above the donor list...
Choose criteria to filter the list. Use as many of the filters as you need, you can choose one or many items depending on how you would like to narrow your results.
Click the "Filter List" button and the list will display only the donors that meet the selected criteria.
Filters are persistent, meaning even after you go in to view and or edit a record and come back to the main list, the filter you are using will still be in place. You can reset the list by clicking the "Cancel Filter" button.
You can also save your filters, to use again at a later time. After you filter the list open the filters menu by clicking the
icon in the filter box.
When the filter menu opens choose "Save Filter" This will bring up the "Add A New Filter" window. Enter a name for the filter and click the "Add This Filter" button. The window will close, and your filter will be saved.
