Filtering Reports


If you click the "Display Filters" checkbox before you Run a report a form will open allowing you to set a filter for the Report. In the example below, I want the Pick List Report that only displays Items assigned to the "Rough-In" or "Trim" Phase:

In addition to filtering via this feature, you can also filter within the Project Editor and then click the "Filtered Items" or "Selected Items" option on the Reports tab prior to running your report:
