With the update, filter chips become available in all overviews instead of the old filter field group, improving the clarity of the corresponding masks. The new selection mode also simplifies the application when working with a mobile version, but can of course still be used with a keyboard. In this article you will learn what has changed for you in detail.
What has changed for me with the new filter and search concept?
First things first: Your favorites and saved filters are still available and can be used after the update. We have summarized the specific changes for filtering and searching for you in an overview:
Searching and filtering:
Before the update, you entered a filter value in a filter field group and clicked Search. Now use the new filter chips. To do this, click Add filter and select the desired filter. A pop-up window will open immediately where you can enter the appropriate filter value. Confirm your selection with Enter (keyboard) or Apply (button).
Recognizing immediately if your overview is filtered:
If your overview is filtered, the title bar of the list is colored blue.
Adding filter setting:
Click on the filter criterion and simply add new values.
Removing filter criteria:
Next to each of the filter criteria you will find an “x”. If you click this, the corresponding criteria will be removed.
Removing filter values:
Do you still want to search for “company”, for example, but you want to remove the entered values? This is possible by clicking.
What has not changed?
The following functionalities and settings have not changed:
- By clicking New you create a new business object.
- You can still adjust the column definition by clicking Column definition.
- The star icon is still available for adding favorites.
- Your previously created favorites and saved filters are still available.
