Schedule filtering options allow Department Schedulers to see certain segments of the schedule or quickly narrow down what appears in the Section Dashboard.

How To Do It

PATH: Academic Scheduling > Section Dashboard


Step 1: Click the drill icon on the top-right corner of the page to open advanced filters.

Step 2: Click “+ Add Filter”.


Step 3: 

  • Input the attributes, filter, and value you wish to apply.

  • If on the courses tab, you can filter for seven course fields. 

  • If on the sections tab, you can filter for over 80 course and section fields.

  • Building a filter includes selecting one of 12 options (“filters” in the below screenshot), such as “contains” and “is”.

    • Note that “is” looks for exact matches. 

    • Unless the value you enter is EXACTLY what you are hoping to filter for, we recommend using “contains” to avoid unintentionally filtering out sections/courses.

    • For example, if you are filtering for instructors but some sections have more than one instructor, a filter that says “Instructors is Henry Thoreau” will only return sections where Henry Thoreau is the sole instructor. If Henry Thoreau teaches a section where another instructor is also assigned, that section would only appear if the filter you built said, “Instructors contains Henry Thoreau”. 

  • The section attributes you see will depend on which fields an admin added to your section template.

  • You can also filter based on custom fields, but they will appear as the alphanumeric Question ID (which an admin can identify by cross-referencing with the Section Template).

  • The exact filters you see will depend on the selected attribute. 


Step 4 (Optional): 

  • Select “+ Add Filter” to add multiple filters to the same search.

  • A new row will be added and the Operator selector will become available where you will be able to choose between AND / OR logic.
