Searching, Filtering and Sorting Inputs

There are many ways to find the input you need using 'Search Filters' & 'Sorting'.

Searching and Filtering Inputs


  • Click on the Inputs menu option found at the top right-hand side of the screen.

  • By default the input's List View will display.

  • The Search Filters can be found on the left-hand side of the screen. In the List View, if the Search Filters are collapsed, click on the arrows to display them.

  • The Search Filters work in exactly the same was for both the List and Board views, except that in the Board View, if the Search Filters are collapsed, click on the search icon to display them.

Until an input has been moderated, only its author and the moderators are able to view it. Once an input is allocated to an owner, they are able to view it and set its input security to allow the appropriate viewing permissions.

If you can't find an input that you are looking for, it may be that it either hasn't been moderated or you don't have the required viewing permission.
