Find Record(s) - Filter

This dialog displays when you select Find Records filtering from the Select Render Mode Manual Ordering dialog or specify dynamic filtering for finding additional records to output for the current Custom Element. You can also search for records for Elements supporting manual selection from the Manage Elements dialog.

Use the Filter option to display all or a subset of available records. The filter defaults to All Records. Click Subset of records to restrict results output based on fields contained within the Custom Element. This tool is similar to other advanced CommonSpot filter tools.

Sort Order gives you options for ordering using field criteria. Pick from the dropdown and choose ascending (A-Z) or descending (Z-A) order. Fields displayed in the Sort Order dropdown are defined in the Data Browser Properties dialog for the Element in the Site Administration - Manage Elements dialog.

When coming from the Render Properties dialog for dynamic results, clicking Save records your filter and closes the dialog. Clicking Preview Records displays the filter results in a new light box window so you can confirm your selections. Once you are satisfied, you can close the Preview window and save your changes.

When choosing the Manually select data to render option from the Select Rendering Mode dialog, this dialog displays a Next button instead of Save and Preview buttons. Clicking Next displays the Find Records Filter Results dialog for selecting the records to append to your manual list.
