Filters are one of the primary features of data tables. By using filters, you can quickly find the data you are looking for.  Filters specify the criteria to use when deciding which rows of data to display in a data table.  For example, you might add a filter to an Animals data table view so only animals with a status of Available are displayed, or animals that were adopted in a certain date range.

Where do I find it?

You can add and remove filters on a custom data table view by selecting the custom data table view in the Views drop down, clicking the Edit this data table view button , and then looking in the Filters section.
