Filtering search results
Search results can be refined using the two dropdowns at the top of the search panel.
Filtering by type — The left-hand dropdown is used to restrict what types of items are being searched.
- Select Datasets, Variables, or Categories to limit your search to that type of object.
For example, if you select Variables while searching for Coffee, you would get a result for a dataset that contained a variable called Coffee Preference, but not for a dataset named Coffee Brand Tracking Survey (provided that dataset had no variables that included the word Coffee).
- For Categorical Array and Multiple Response variables, selecting Categories will also search sub-variable names.
Filtering by time — The right-hand dropdown lets you limit the time frame of the data being searched.
Filtering by date
The right-hand dropdown lets you limit the time frame of the data being searched.
This filter uses the dataset End Date that can be seen in Dataset Properties. At this time, End Date is set on import or by a dataset editor.
