The filters section works by adding the filters you need one after an another.
How it works
Here's an example of a filtered album list:
To create the filter structure in our example above, we proceeded in the following manner:
- You start off blank and you click on "Add filter"
- Clicking on "Add filter" displays the entier list of internal data and tag categories inside your account. By choosing "Artists" you have your artists filter box appear with inside it the search field in which you will type "Various Artists"
- You see you album list filtered by "Various Artists"
- Then you proceed to add your "Genres / Styles" filter box (which is a tag category created by the user) in the same way: you click on "Add filters", choose "Genres / Styles" to display its filter box and then you search for the tags "Hip-Hop" and "Lounge" from inside the search field.
- You do exactly the same thing with the "Status" filter box.
Different types of filters
It is important to note that different filters sometimes have different options.
For example, both the "Artists" and "Genres / Styles" only display a search field from which users can look for specific data.
Because the "Status" filter box pertains to a category of internal data that specifically designates only a limited / finite number of options, we find a dropdown select field type instead of your typical search field.
Another type of filter box we included that is very flexible allows users to choose between multiple options and filter their lists with top notch precision.
The "Number of tracks" filter box illustrates this well:
With this type of filter box, users can really go in deep and isolate very specific sets of data.
Because all of this is quite a lot to take in, here's a video to help you better understand everything that has just been explained:
