The Filter Editor

In the filter editor, you can define queries for granular filtering of the displayed contents.

The filter editor is available here:

  • My Tasks module
  • Cockpit module (Online Client only)

You can open it with the respective item in the context menu of the column headers.

As a matter of principle, a simple filter in the filter editor consists of a Boolean operator and a condition. Together, the Boolean operator and the condition make up a group. You can determine several conditions per group and several groups per filter.

Defining a Group

To define a group, proceed as follows:

  • Selection of the Boolean operator (see 1): Here, select a Boolean operator to connect the conditions.
  • Selection of the column header (see 2): All column headers available in the respective module are available for selection (i.e. the range in the My Tasks module is a bit smaller than in the Cockpit module).
  • Selection of a relational operator or another operator (see 3): Here, relational operators like "greater than" (>) and "less than" (<) are available.
  • Definition of the desired value (see 4): Depending on the condition structure, an input field for free input or multiple options are provided here.

To add another condition or group and to remove groups that are no longer needed, click the Boolean operator and select the respective entry in the menu. Additionally, you can click the respective icons next to the Boolean operator or next to the condition to add (icn_filter-editor_bedingung-hinzufuegen) or remove (icn_filter-editor_bedingung-entfernen) a condition. By default, the Boolean operator "And" is preselected.

Overview of Boolean Operators

The filter editor features four Boolean operators. They connect the conditions within a group as follows:

Operator "And"/"NotAnd"
All criteria within a group must be fulfilled.
Operator "Or"/"NotOr"
One of the criteria within a group must be fulfilled.

Effects of the Boolean Operators

The following example demonstrates the effects of the various Boolean operators. The conditions remain the same, only the Boolean operator is changed.

In our example, we assume that we have two target languages – English and German – and three existing translators – A, B, and C. The following two conditions are specified in the filter editor:

Assigned to
=
Translator B
Target language
=
German

"And" search

grafik_filter-editor_boolean-operators_AND

The result shows all tasks that have been assigned to translator B and whose target language is "German".

"NotAnd" search:

grafik_filter-editor_boolean-operators_NOT-AND

The result is the opposite of the "And" search.

"Or" search:

grafik_filter-editor_boolean-operators_OR

The result shows all tasks that have been assigned to translator B or whose target language is "German".

"NotOr" search:

grafik_filter-editor_boolean-operators_NOT-OR

The result is the opposite of the "Or" search.
