A filter enables you to view records that fulfill specific conditions. The conditions are set by the different fields and types of fields within the table.
You can add more than one filter at the same time for different variables. They will restrict the number of records onscreen, as you are adding "condition 1" AND "condition 2" at the same time.
By default, once you add a filter, it will be saved at your table. This makes it easier to focus on the data that really matters to you. For example, if you want to see only the tasks that are not done, when you check it as "done", it will automatically disappear from your filtered table.
Don't worry about your data "disappearing"
When you filter something, it'll not be on your table while the filter is on. However, your data is still there, it was not deleted. If you remove the filter, all data will be visible again.
Search is a special kind of filter. It will filter your data according to a specific text or number inside any of the table fields. For exemple, it's much easier to find your client "John Wick" in a big list of clients just by searching his name.
Tip! Special shortcut 🔍
On your jestor app, you can use the combination Command+f (or Control for Windows) to open the search.
