Hi Dan --
Thanks for the info -- it does help. I had not noticed the filter icons before; somehow I thought they were sort indicators. Looks like I need new glasses.
I would suggest adding a similar "(Blanks)
" choice to the main category selection list.
I was surprised that selecting "Appointments
" in filter menu did not show all the events having that category. Instead it showed the events having only
" category, which is equivalent to a Text Filter for Equals "Appointment"
. I had expected a result equivalent to Text Filter Contains "Appointment"
. Of course I could construct that, but it requires typing in the category name and is less convenient than just checking a box. I would find it more intuitive if the default filter operator were Contains
. Perhaps you could add a view Settings option for Default Filter Operator.
The other option would be to check all the boxes for multiple categories, e.g. "Appointments, Medical
". That would require finding them manually in the list, which seems error prone.
I thought that saving a custom filter might help, but the only Filter option I see in the view's Settings menu is "Reset Filter". Is saving filters no longer a feature?
