Advanced Version of Find Events (Beta)

This article describes how to use the advanced version of Mazévo's new Find Events tool.

What's different in the Advanced version

There are several features that we added in the advanced version that includes:

  • The overall look and feel of the filters screen have been improved.
  • The ability to select the columns that are displayed in the results. You can also remove any of the standard columns.  
  • The ability to pre-filter the data. This returns a smaller set of data, making the manipulation of the results quicker. 
  • The ability to rearrange the columns in the results grid
  • The ability to group the results by dragging columns to the grouping bar.  Within each group, you can control the sort order.
  • The ability to add additional filtering criteria to the results for each column.

Launching the advanced version

The advanced version can be found as an option in the main Find Events filter.
