Subfilter - create your own

The following article explains step by step how you can create a personal sub-filter in order to save a search result permanently as a filter.

In this case we will show you how to create a sub-filter, i.e. there is already a main filter with a defined search result, which is broken down further. Here is a  example: Main filter All current drawings, possible sub-filters Approved drawings or All current drawings - architecture.

To create such a filter, hover the mouse over the filter symbol of the main filter in the menu on the left and then select Create sub-filter in the context menu:


A new window opens where you can now define the final settings for the sub-filter. Some settings are already predefined by the main filter and are applied directly. Filters created by you are always personal filters and are not visible to other participants in the project room.


If you are finding yourself constantly looking up the same search criteria you can now save this as a subfilter, so it will always be accessible for you. You can find out how to do this here.

Finally, you can adjust the number and order of the information displayed.


  • Standard: always displayed
  • detail: shown in the details area
  • none: is never displayed

Properties set to a lower level can be made visible via the main menu bar of the action area View and Show details.

Sequence no.

The numbers under Sequence indicate the display order of the columns (from left to right). To apply the changes, select Save in the filter action bar, for a newly created filter select Create.

Screenshots are an example. The interface of your platform may look different, but the processes remain the same.
