Activate filter by pressing enter


Has anyone had the same problem since the new Filter was released... you cannot activate the filter you have just created by pressing enter. you have to click on 'APPLY' with your mouse or touch screen.


Smartsheet - the new filters are amazing... but we really need the option to activate the filter on 'enter' not having to click... it would be SO much more efficient (especially becuase most of my smartsheet work involves filtering)!


Be glad of some support here... hear from you all soon :)

    Hi Aus,


    The new UI is different to accomodate for our more advanced filtering logic, and that makes pressing Enter to apply a filter more tricky but still possible. You have to tab through until the Apply button is selected, then press Enter. Buttons have a dotted line inside of the button (around the label text) when they're selected.


    I was able to accomplish this on my computer. If you're still not able to accomplish this, then reach out to our Support team for further troubleshooting: https://help.smartsheet.com/contact
