Is there some way of creating a temporary filter?


If I have 10 possible entries for a field and I want to filter to one and then another and then another on the fly, can this be done? It seems that I have to create 10x filters, one for each possible entry.

    Hi kclifton 

    I hope you're doing well. 

    You should create 1 filter and add conditions, rather than creating 10 different filters. 


    I hope this helps you. Have a Good Day.

    Hi @kclifton

    I hope you're well and safe!

    If you click on Filter in the column, like my example below, you can immediately select what you want to filter.

    You can do that for each requirement.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not sure I follow though.

    I want to filter on the same column each time and I'd prefer not to create 10x different filters because this seems ridiculous and not scalable. Hope that that makes sense.
