4.1.8. Filtering

You can easily filter the list of requirements as illustrated in the screen-shot below:

To filter the list by any of the displayed columns, you either choose an item from the appropriate drop-down list or enter a free-text phrase (depending on the type of field) then click the <Filter> icon or press the <ENTER> key to apply the different filters. Note that the name field is searched using a “LIKE” comparison, so that searching for “database” would include any item with the word database in the name. The other freetext fields need to be exact matches (e.g. dates, requirement numbers). In the screen-shot above, we are filtering on Status = Requested.

In addition, if you have a set of filters that you plan on using on a regular basis, you can choose the option Filter > Save Filter to add the current filter to the list of saved filters that appear on your ‘My Page’. If you would like to share the filter with other members of the project, choose the XXX option. The list of saved filters can also be retrieved by clicking Filter > Retrieve Filter:

As a shortcut, the left hand panel includes a set of Quick Filters that can be applied in a single-click:

  • My Filters – This section displays any saved requirement filters created by the current user
  • Shared Filters – This section displays any saved requirement filters created in the current project and listed as ‘shared’ by the person who created them.
  • Components – This section lists the components defined for the current project. Clicking on any of the components in the list will filter the requirements to only show those that belong to the selected component.
  • Releases – This section lists the releases and iterations defined for the current project. Clicking on any of the releases or iterations in the list will filter the requirements by that release/iteration.
