How Do I Use a Filter Set?

Filter Sets can be used to save your favorite filters and search combinations in Silverbucket's views. Just below the top-right corner you can find a functionality to create, save and use Filter Sets:
Just below the main navigation bar, right side of Silverbucket

By clicking Filter Sets you can see your previously created personal filters & public filters created by other Silverbucket users:
In this instance we have zero filter sets created - feel free to create one!

Creating a New Filter Set

To create a new filter set navigate to a view where filters can be used

1) Experience with the filters and create a filter combination that suits your needs. In this example we are interested in seeing all the people in Silverbucket, that are:

- Part of the user group called Electricians
- Country is Finland
- Work under the supervision of a person named Supervisor Colleague
Described filters are indicated with orange color

2) Click Update Report and double-check the results are what you wished:
A perfect listing according to rules we gave in step 1

3) Save the Filter Set for future purposes to avoid doing the same filtering every week. There are two ways of doing this after filtering the desired results in the main view:

A) Click straight on the disk icon
B) Click Filter Sets and then choose Create new Filter Set

Both of these choices open the same dialog:
Dialog window pops up - here we can fill in details about the filter

Name (mandatory) = Name of the filter
Private = decide if this filter can be seen only by you, or by everyone using the view
Description (optional) = further specify what this filter can be used for

Keep name short if possible; description takes care of the details

As you click Save the filter is saved in the database. After saving, it can be used in a similar view it was created in by the user that created it OR everyone in Silverbucket (based on the private slider)

In the following screenshot we have multiple filters created:
- one private filter ("Personal")
- multiple public filtes ("Absences", "High util" & "Invoiceable")
In this screenshot we have 1 personal & 3 public filters to use to our advantage
