Queue's are used to list all records which are there in a particular activity. Sometimes you may want to filter records based on some conditions (static filters), or may be you want to give the users an option to filter the records in the queue (dynamic filters). Let's see how to do filters.
In the process design view, after you have defined how the queue should look for a activity, choose the activity and then click on the filter data button.
This will open up the filter dialog for that activity.
Here you can click on the Plus Button to create filter conditions
In this you can define your conditions
The First Drop down lists the Field of the current model against which you are going to state conditions. This is the Left Hand Side (LHS) of the condition. The Second Drop down list the equating options for the condition. The Third Drop down lists the type of the value on the Right Hand Side (RHS) of the condition. And Finally the last box takes the value of the condition or the cell which will contain the value of the condition
For Defining a Static Filter: where you will define the value, choose Value in the Third drop down and then enter the RHS value for the condition. (without any quotes or double quotes). and then say done.
For Defining a Dynamic Filter:, in the Third drop down choose Cell, Now the fourth box turns into a drop down field. Before doing anything here, first you will have to create fields in User model.
Goto User Model. Here Create fields for the conditions as required. The only criteria being the datatypes of the fields which you are creating here and the fields against which you are going to equate these fields should match.
Now back inthe process where we are defining the filters, in the drop down in the fourth field, choose the field which you have created for this field. and say done.
Now in the Queue. Above Header, Add the fields, so that user will have option to enter values during runtime to search for values.
