Creating an On-Screen Filter

Using filters to change the data displayed on screen and downloaded in reports.

As the need arises, you may wish to remove specific results from a screen or downloaded report. For example, visits to your own website can skew your analysis of website visitors, but excluding your own IP address from the data can solve this problem. You may also wish to see the suspect orders that you approved by filtering for an NS8 Status of "Accepted." These are just a few examples of the many uses and reasons for building a filter.

The Filter Function

The filter function is found on many screens in NS8's application suite. The functions outlined below will help you build a filter.

  3. Criteria: Here you will select the field, conditions, and critera for the rule you are building.
