A filter restricts what records appear in a list by providing a set of conditions
each record must meet to be included in the list.
A condition consists of the following parts.
- Field: Each field contains data from a particular column in the table. Selecting
a reference field allows you to dot-walk to data from other tables.
- Operator: Each field type has its own set of valid operators. The operator
determines if a value is needed.
- Value: Each field has its own set of valid values determined by the field type.
Reference fields have access to auto-complete, and choice lists provide a list
- Grouping: Each condition line is grouped with either an AND or OR connector. The
filter requires all condition lines linked with an AND connector to be met. The
filter separately evaluates each condition line linked with an OR
List v3 provides the Related Lists Conditions section that allows you to include a
condition based on a related table.
Create filters on a list using the condition builder.
Related list conditions in List v3
By default, all lists allow you to filter on the current table data, which includes
dot-walking to fields in referenced tables. In v3 lists, another type of condition,
Related Lists Conditions, is available in the condition builder. For more
information, see Add related list conditions.
