Enhanced Filtering

Tables in Presence have received some significant enhancements. While the look is nearly the same, they now offer much more functionality including ordering/sorting, collapsible columns and saving your column layout when the page is accessed within the same browser.




A cog symbol will be visible in the top right corner of the screen. It will show a list of columns in the table. When an option in this list is clicked, it will toggle the visibility of that column.


After selecting the configuration of column visibility, you will be able to navigate away from the page and return to the page in the same browser to the same format. You can also sort the table by each visible column by clicking the header of the column. Once ordered, the column header should indicate that it is active by a gray color and an arrow icon representing 'ascending' or 'descending' order.


The column can be ordered 'ascending' or 'descending' by clicking the column header a certain amount of times: 

  • One click = 'descending'

  • Two clicks = 'ascending'

  • Three clicks: off.

The table can now be ordered by multiple columns. Once you select your table's first column, clicking another column header will add the second column's data in your desired order.  The sort order of the columns is indicated by the gray shading - the darker gray, the higher the sort priority.



Enhanced Filtering is enabled on the Organizations list, Events list, Event Attendees list, People list, and the newly-launched Service Hours page. We’re excited to see how this update helps you better utilize the data in Presence!


You are now able to create your own filters by selecting a column by which you want to filter the table and the style of filter based on that column. 


Once you choose a column and filter type, the filter can be used like a traditional filter. Also included are the operators 'and' and 'or'. Some filters come standard when needed, but building the custom filters is where the magic happens.


    To create a new custom filter:      

  1. Click the filter button in the search bar. Once you select a filter, a filter button will appear with that name. 

  2. Clicking the newly generated filter will show a dropdown menu of the available filter types for that column's type of data.

  3. Once you select a type from the dropdown, your filter will immediately take effect. You can view our filter type reference here.

  4. After a filter has been built and parameters are selected, the filter button will turn green to show the filter is active. The data will only be filtered by active (green) filters. You'll be able to clear the parameters and deactivate the filter by clicking the 'Clear' option on the dropdown.

  5. You'll notice when you create more than one filter, a button will appear with the text 'AND'. This is an operator button. Clicking this button will toggle the text between 'AND' and 'OR'. This will allow you to create complex filters like: "Organizations with more than 50 members AND a name that contains 'Beta' OR has a Category of Greek".
