View Full Version : CM Search Filters - Edit Filters... - Needs more functions

Currently the Edit Filters... function only allows removal of a custom function.

When building or modifying a custom filter one of the most common typos is mispelling the filter's name.
Right now you can only correct the filter's name by making a new filter then deleting the old.

Similarly as you discover the power of CM search filters in organising your workflow, you may wish to group similar search filters.

eg.

FAULTY - ALL
PM - Faulty

may for your way of working be better as

FAULTY - ALL
FAULTY - PM

The filter list will then be sorted accordingly.

I recommend addition of a function in sub-menu Edit Filters... :

Rename Filter

I agree.

A couple of requests:

An ability to export and import filters.

Have the filter type (category, author, asset KUID, etc) in alphabetical order. It looks like they are in some kind of grouping but if they are, then most drop down lists would have a separation bar.
