Custom Data Filters

In this page you'll learn how to use the custom data filters component throughout our dashboard. This component is used in several parts of our dashboard allowing you to harness the power of custom events. Custom events allow you store data in a free form format and to help you make use of that data. This can allow you to create highly relevant automation connectors or fine-grained export jobs.

To add a filter, click in the Add one?:

Add one button f49362d9d6

This will add an entry as the one below:

Data filters entry c252e4a6f6

In each entry you add you will have to define which property you want to filter for (this must be the name of a key in your data):

Property 846c4aa2dd

For us to be able to perform comparisons, you need to define how we should treat this key (you can choose between String, Number, Date and Boolean):

Treat as add4aa81ef

You should also define which operator we should use (you can choose between Greater than and equal to, Greater than, Less than or equal to, Less than, Is any, Is not any, Equal to and Not equal to):

Operator 30b134dded

Finally you should provide the value you want to compare against:

Value 4f80c47eee

If you select an operator of type Is any or Is not any, you can add one or more values. To do that simply click in the following button:

Add another value d9245ee200

Your entry would then look like the following:

Multiple values 03a0efaa47

This would allow you to compare your data against several values.

You can also add more properties by clicking in the Add another property button:

Add another property d3c8cacd4c

This would add another entry like the one below:

Multiple properties 36ac7d6fef

Note the AND operator, you would be then comparing your data against multiple values. If you want to use the OR operator, you should add another set instead. This can be done by clicking in the Add another set button:

Add another set dfe8899e9f

This would create filters just like the example below:

Example data filters 336cfb8157

You can combine as many filters as you want to harness all the data you register with your custom events in any way you want.
