The filters engine in Reprtoir allows you to activate multiple filters at once in order to refine your searches as you see fit.
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:
- We start off in our Track list and then we click on "Add filter"
- Clicking on "Add filter" displays the entire list of internal data and Tag Categories inside our account. By choosing "Artists" we have our Artists filter box appear with inside it the search field in which we will type "Alicia Keys"
- The Track list is immediately filtered by tracks whose main Artist is Alicia Keys
- We add the "Popularity - Spotify" filter box (which is a Tag Category that has been fetched from Spotify by our Metadata Collector) in the same way: we clicked on "Add filters", chose "Popularity - Spotify" to display its filter box and then we chose the values "between 30 and 50".
Different types of filters
It is important to note that different filters sometimes have different options.
Search based filters
Some filters allow you to search for tags amongst a pool of tags created by you. For example, the "Artists" filters allows you to search any Artist in your catalog. In theory, you can create as many Artists as you like so the filter's search bar can pull up anyone of those Artists.
These types of filters allow you to filter multiple values and choose between "and" and/or "or" options.
Internal data based filters
Some filters only allow you to choose from predetermined sets of data, such as the "Release status" filter that can only offer four options: Draft, Submitted, Released and Taken down.
Multiple options based filters
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.
