In what scenarios can a filter be used?

Filters can be used whenever there is a list of similar things that have different properties that a user may be looking for.

Examples include:

  • A list of meeting rooms available for reservation that have different number of seats and amenities.
  • A list of hot desks available for reservation that are available on different days or on different floors.
  • A list of classes that are available for registration that fall under different categories (Yoga, Cardio, Weight Training)
  • A list of events that are available for registration (Music, Art, Cuisine)

What types of filters are there?

There are two types of filters:

  • Standard filters are based on a single data input type, such as a Number.
  • Advanced filters are a custom list of icons and headings:
