Build with operators

Once you add a filter, refine it with operators. The filter type cannot be changed but clicking on any other part of the filter formula will give you options to change it and modify the query.

For instance, for a filter that says Assignee is Pierre, clicking on Assignee will do nothing, clicking on is will give you the option to change the operator to is not, and clicking on Pierre will show a selectable list to modify the assignee. If you add another assignee, Jose, then you'll see the is operator change to is either of or is not.

We support the following operators in Colabra, which will show up depending on the type of filter and selections:

  • is or is not when one option is included in the filter

  • is either of or is not when multiple options are included in the filter

  • includes any, all, neither, either, or none for labels and links

  • before or after for date-related filters

Combined filters

Show results that match any or all filters applied to a view. Once you add at least two filters, the option will appear in the top right sidebar. Click on the all filters or any filters wording to switch it.
