We are thrilled to unveil the latest enhancement to the PPO user interface which we believe is the best yet! All lists / tables in PPO now have a single, powerful filter control which replaces the previous list criteria dropdown boxes.
The new control provides all the functionality that you previously had but takes up significantly less space, allowing you to see more of the data that you are actually interested in and as a bonus also looks great on mobile devices.
The control is very intuitive to use but below we have mapped the old criteria selector functionality to the new filter control to make your transition as painless as possible.
Filtering on a field
To get started, simply click anywhere in the filter control, select a field to filter on and then select a value as shown below.
Note that only the first 100 values for a field are shown and only values present in the data are shown. You can type in a few characters at any time and only the matching fields or values will be displayed. You can remove a filter condition by clicking on the little X and you can change it by clicking on the value.
Specifying an entity filter
Instead of filtering on a specific field, you can also select an entity filter (in this case an issue filter) as shown below.
Note that the list of filters contains both global and personal filters and that only the first 25 filters are shown. If you have lots of filters and a specific filter is not shown, you can search for it by typing in a few characters contained in the filter name.
If the filter is a personal filter (as opposed to a shared global filter), you can edit the filter by selecting it as above and then clicking on the filter name (shown in blue above). You can create a new personal entity filter by clicking on the funnel icon.

I absolutely love the new filter control! Not that there was something I didn’t like about the previous filter:-). But this is a great enhancement. Easy & quick to use and very nice to have a bigger space for your lists. Thanks guys!
Awesome, I like it and need to play around to fully realize the enhancement.
