Scheduling Grid Custom Filters

Custom search or filters can be created if the Scheduling Grid being viewed allows. The schedule grid definition includes settings that determine whether or not the custom filter panel is available, and what options are provided.  Filter types and the choices within each type may be limited.  Clicking the search toggle button will expand the filter panel.

A keyword search field and various filter choices are available within the filter panel.  Keyword search options can include subject, course number, section number, and section title for sections, and event name and reservation number for events. For individual filter choices, use the + button, if provided, to select one or more filter items from the list.  Otherwise, you may toggle filter items on and off by removing or adding the checkmark.  Filter items may be permanently removed by using the red X.  Finally, you may use the "not equal to" option to the right of each filter type to eliminate certain choices.

Click Search to update the grid results. When finished, click the search toggle button to hide the filter panel.
