Filter & Refine


The Filter & Refine buttons help you quickly organize data by applying rules to include or exclude information based on different data points.

  • Filter: Filter choices mirror the available report columns making it easy to narrow or expand results.

  • Refine: Use the Refine option to pinpoint information to a set of criteria, such as a specific completion date, for example.


Report Action Toolbar


Located directly beneath the Filter & Refine section, the Report Actions toolbar offers processing options to the entire Report, based on the current layout used.

Important Note: Only changes that have been saved as part of a saved Report Layout can be shared, scheduled, or set as the Organization Default (layout).
