If allowed within the grid being viewed, you may create a custom search or filter.  Start by clicking the search toggle button to expand the filter panel.




The grid definition includes settings that determine whether or not the custom filter panel is available, and if so, what options are provided.  Filter types and the choices within each type may be limited.


A keyword search field and various filter choices are available within the filter panel.  Keyword search options can include subject, course number, section number, and section title for sections, and event name and reservation number for events.  For individual filter choices, use the + button, if provided, to select one or more filter items from the list.  Otherwise, you may toggle filter items on and off by removing or adding the check mark.  Filter items may be permanently removed by using the red X.  Finally, you may use the "not equal to" option to the right of each filter type to eliminate certain choices.




Click Search to update the grid results.


When finished, you may click the search toggle button at any time to hide the custom filter panel.

Saving Filters

Favorite filters may be saved.


The saved filter toolbar is included at the top of the filter panel.
