Show/Hide Column Filters

For example, if the item you are searching for includes “metal” in the subject, enter “metal” in the Subject filter field.  The list will be narrowed down to only display items that include “metal” in the subject.

Several of the fields can also be filtered using advanced filtering, which allows you to select a comparison method for the entered filter value. Click on the filter icon next to the column filter field, as shown below. Click on a comparison value to select it.

 

The available comparison values vary depending on the selected column. For additional information, please refer to Enhanced Column Filters.

Enter the desired text, then press Enter to initiate the filter. You can enter text in multiple columns to further filter the log as needed.
