The policies and procedures 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 based on your selected criteria.
As an example, if you wanted to know how many policies and procedures there are for a specific Department/Chapter, you could filter the list by Department/Chapter and choose a department/chapter. 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 policies and procedures for the department/chapter selected. The list has also changed and displays only the policies and procedures for the department/chapter selected.
To get started, select My Organization > Our Policies and Procedures - from the main menu on the left hand side of the screen.
This will open your policies and procedures list. To filter the list, click the "Filter List" button.
The Filter List panel will open above the policies and procedures 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. Policies and Procedures can be filtered by:
- Posted By
- Posted Date Range
- Precincts (Select District First)
Click the "Filter List" button and the list will display only the policies and procedures that meet the selected criteria.
Filters are persistent, meaning even after viewing and or editing a record, the filter you are using will still be in place when you come back to the main list. 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. To load a filter at a later time, open the filters menu again but this time choose "Load Filter". A list of saved filters will be displayed. Click the filter you want to load. The filter will be applied and your list will display according to the filter criteria. To delete a filter, open the filters menu again but this time choose "Delete Filter". A list of saved filters will be displayed. Click the filter you want to delete. The filter will be deleted, the filter box will close and the list will be reset back to its original state.
