Reporting → Using Reports → Using Report Filters
On the Report Filters page, you can view, edit, and create report filters, which you can use to limit report results according to a set of pre-defined conditions in one or more reports (and feeds). With report filters, you can define search criteria once, and then reuse the same criteria across several different reports and feeds. This means when you create or edit reports, you can select an existing report filter on the Search Filter tab instead of having to define the same report conditions multiple times in multiple reports. This also applies to the field specification when you create a feed in Work Center.
Report filters also simplify report maintenance. For example, if a user leaves the company, you can remove the user's name from a single report filter instead of editing each report that uses a similar Search Filter with the user's name and removing the name multiple times.
Business rules that designers create in SBM Composer can be reused as report filters throughout your reports in SBM. Report filters that are tied to rules defined in SBM Composer do not have an Author, and cannot be edited or deleted like other report filters in Work Center.
Each report filter is assigned an Access level that determines who can view, edit, and delete the report filter. Note the following about each access level:
