Applying filters

  2. Select the name of the filter that you want to apply to view the list of filtering options. The default filtering option appears in blue and has a blue tick mark before its name. For example: images/download/thumbnails/157557332/DefaultFilterOption.png .

  3. Select a filtering option from the list. The selected option appears in blue and has a blue tick mark before its name.


    Some filters may allow you to select more than one option. For example, the Database filter lets you select both Active and Archive.

  4. Select Done. The filtered results are displayed. A number icon appears indicating the number of filters for which the default options are changed. For example, if you change the default options for three filters, images/download/thumbnails/157557332/FilterNumber.png is displayed.
