Filtering the List

You can reduce the number of visible records in the "Policies" list using Basic and Advanced List Filters.

Filtered data displays only the records that meet criteria that you specify and hides records that you do not want displayed. Criteria are filter options you set to limit which records are included in the result view. You can use one or more filter options at once.

Tip
You can apply the filter as a search for the necessary items in the list.

Basic List Filter

The Basic List Filter allows you to reduce the number of Policies in the list using the minimum range of criteria.
