Additional Filter Options

Introduction

Dragon1 offers all kinds of search and filter options, such as:

  • Search box
  • Tags

These filter options are described on the page Searching and Filtering.

Besides these filter and search options, Dragon1 offers a couple of additional search and filter options.

Filtering Data List View

In each Data List View on Dragon1, items can be searched an filtered in a number of ways.

Use the following steps to open a Data List View on Dragon1:

  • Log in.
  • Click on 'Collaboration' on the left side menu.
  • Click on 'Data Dashboard' to open the Data Dashboard.
  • Click on any tile (e.g. Applications) to open a Data List View.

Use the search bar

By using the search bar, items can be filtered by specifying a search term in the search box. All items containing the search term will be shown on the list. Furthermore, the filtering can be narrowed down by specifying a state (all, past, current, future).
