Savings and Sharing Filters

By default, MantisHub stores the latest adhoc filter per project. So that users retain their latest filters between login sessions, or as they switch between projects.

However, it is often useful to save filters so that the user is able to easily switch between them. You can also share these filters so other team members can make use of the same filter.

Here are the steps to create a saved filter:

  • Go to View Issues page
  • Select the project you want to apply the filter (from project selector, if visible on top right corner).
  • Select the filter criteria
  • Click 'Apply Filter'
  • Verified that issues listed match the desired criteria
  • Click "Save Current Filter"

 

Then

  • Provide a name for the filter. 
  • Check 'All projects' if you want to make the filter available across all projects - e.g. "assigned to me" filter would make sense to make available independent of the selected project. If unchecked it will only be available in the project listed in the project filter.
  • Check 'Make Public' if you want to make the filter available to all users - e.g. "Release 2.0 Blocking Issues" make sense to share across all users on a specific project.
  • Click "Save Current Filter"

 

To switch between filters:

  • Select the filter name from the dropdown next to the 'Use Filter' button.
  • Select '[Reset Filter]' from the dropdown to show all issues matching default filter (issues belonging to current project that are not closed).

 

You can manage (edit and delete) your saved filters by heading to the View Issues page and clicking on the menu in the top right of the filter box. If you have saved filters, you will see a 'Manage Filters' option.

Now your armed and ready to create a bunch of shortcuts in your workflow for the whole team :).
