The Cedexis UI team spends considerable time looking for ways to help make our products both useful and efficient. One of the areas they’ve been concentrating on is improving the experience of applying several sets of filters to a report, which historically has led to a reload of the report every time a user has changed the filter list.
So we are excited to be rolling out a new reporting feature today called Apply Filters. With the focus on improved usability and efficiency, this new feature allows you to select (or deselect) your desired filters first and then click the Apply Filters button to re-run the report. By selecting all your filters once, you will save time and eliminate confusion of remembering which filters you selected while the report is continuously refreshing itself.
The Apply Filter button appears in off-state and on-state. The off-state button is a lighter green version that you will see before any filter selections are made. The on-state will become enabled once a filter selection has been made. Once you run Apply Filters, and the report has completed re-running with the selected filters, the button will return to the off-state.
We have also placed the Apply Filters button at both the top and bottom of the Filters area. The larger button at the bottom is a fixed setting so no matter how many filter options you have open, this button will always be easily accessible.
We hope you’ll agree this makes reports easier to use, and will save you time as you slice-and-dice your way to a deep and broad understanding of how traffic is making its way across the public internet.
