VISUAL PLANNING 5.3 DOCUMENTATION

Filter

DEFINITION

A Filter is a list of criteria which is used when the user wants to display only some specific data. When the user launches the filter, VISUAL PLANNING is checking each data to only show the ones fulfilling the criteria requested by the filter.

A filter can be either a resource filter or events filter.

A filter is:

  • A list of criteria brought into a “Group of requirements”.
  • Each criterion is composed of:
    • A resource or an event characteristic.
    • An operator.
    • A chosen value (or it might be a « to ask » value; in this case the user who launches the filter is choosing the value).
  • A group of all the conditions of a group that respect the INTERSECTION or the UNION of all these conditions.
  • Many groups of conditions can be group together.
