Filters

Intro

Let's work off the basic production view preset to take a look at what our various filters can do.

Action Needed

The action needed filter takes into account the various stages of the production process.

[Needs] Slicing

Filters to projects with models that are missing an associated job (.gcode, etc), and have not yet been printed/counted. Put simply, this is used to help find models that need to be sliced.

[Needs] Printing

Filters to projects with models that have associated jobs (.gcode, etc), but still need to be printed. When a machine opens up, this filter helps you find a job to send its way.

[Needs] Counting

Filters to projects with models that have been marked as printing, but are not yet fully counted. This filter is great for when a machine has finished, but you were not the person who started the print, so you have no idea which models it has made.

Materials

The materials filter, as it implies, will allow you to filter by the various materials needed.

Machines

The machines filter, as it implies, will allow you to filter by the various machines needed.

To-do

Filters to any project that has To-do items that have yet to be checked off

Any project can be given custom to-do items (like "Show first sample to Amy."). Learn more about to-do items here.

Assigned

Filters to only projects or models that have been assigned to you.

Tags

Filters to only projects or parts that have the tags you select.

Tags are an amazing way to organize and track your projects parts by metrics that are specific to your company, operations, or personal preference. Learn more about how tags can power up your productivity here.


More

The "more" filter gives you advanced controls for creating your own custom views, which can later be saved as a template.

Project Status

Filter by project status, such as Quoted or Completed, which would be great for your front office roles like sales. Or, stick with Production to create even more customized views of everything in production.

Group By

Group by will determine the Columns that are shown. Group by materials, for example, will make a new column for each material (just like the materials preset).

Sorting

Sort will determine the order the items are shown, with common use options like Due Date or Date Put Into Production. Sort Order will allow for ascending or descending, effectively reversing everything into the opposite order (putting the closest due dates first or putting the closest due dates last, as an example).

Layout

Finally, there is the layout, vertical or horizontal.

Horizontal

Most of the preset views are in horizontal layout, where columns are lined up to the left and right of each other (horizontally), and various cards (projects, models, jobs) are lined up on top or bottom of each other.

Vertical

Vertical view, on the other hand, flips all of that. What used to be columns are now rows on top and bottom of each other (vertical), while the cards (projects, models, jobs) now line up to the left and right of each other.

Hide Empty Projects

By default, empty projects (projects that have no content) are left blank.

Empty projects can happen if someone clicks the "Submit Files" button on your landing page but then closes out of the window before doing anything. There's generally no use for them, but they exist.
