Examples of Quick Filters in the Order Manager

Within the Order Manager window, users have the option to filter the views by additional conditions. These filters don’t last beyond the time that the Order Manager window is open, but they can be useful to narrow down the data returned by the standard views.

We’ll look over two quick filters in this article. The first will be a simple one condition filter, and the other will be a bit more complex to show how filters can be built.

Example 1: Filter Scheduled Orders by a given date

Step 1:  Open the Order Manger and select the “Scheduled” button from the bar.

Step 2: Click the “Filter” icon

Step 3: You’ll now be in the filter set up window. Here, we can add conditions to the filter to sort the data in our views. For now, we will click the + symbol next to the “And” criteria.

Step 4: Initially, it will default to the criteria of “Order Number is…”. We want to change this to be “Order Date is…”.

Step 5: Click on “Order Number” to make the drop down menu appear and select “Order Date” from the list.

Step 6: Once selected, click on the <enter a value> field and type in the date of your choosing. For this case, we’ll choose 11/8/2016.

After entering it, click “Apply” then “OK”. The filter will now be applied.

Example 2: A bit more complicated

Here we will simply create a new filter with more than one set of criteria. There are many, many options for what you can sort by and how, so we encourage you to try out different options and combinations for best results. In our example here, we followed the same set of steps to get to the filter window. The only difference here is that we’ll start on the Open orders view. (Note: Your filters are applied across all views, so it doesn’t matter which view you’re on when creating the filter)

Step 1: Open up the filter window and select “Order Status” from the dropdown

Step 2: Next we will click on “Is” to change it to “Is not”.

Step 4: Let’s add a few more filters. In this case, let’s grab all orders where the order date is on or after 10/1/2016. To add additional criteria to a filter, click the + symbol next to the “And” at the top. We’ll select “Order Date” as we did before, and then change “is” to be “Is on or after” from the drop down. Then add the date information as we did last time.

Step 5: Let’s also remove any open orders with an order date of 11/7/2016. This will pull all orders on or after 10/1, but it will exclude any with an order date of 11/7.

Step 6: Let’s add one more criteria. We’ll click the + and then swap out “Order number” to be “Customer ID”. We’ll also change out the “is” to be “Does not contain”.

Step 7: In the <enter a value> field we will click once, then type in “B”. This will remove all orders from the list if their customer ID’s contain a “B” in them.

Step 8: After entering in all of the above, click “Apply” and then “OK” to set the filter.

There are many ways to use quick filters. This article covered some of the basics, but feel free to experiment and develop your own sets. Whenever you’re done using the filter, simply click the “X” next to the “Filter” icon to revert back to the default views or close the order manager window to reset it.
