Apply data filters to view select records. Filtering is a helpful way to see only the data you want to be displayed. You can use filters to display specific records in the data entries. For the users to have options for different filters of form data, a drop-down list of filters is displayed in the application. The records that are visible in individual views are displayed in a list, sometimes called a grid, which frequently provides options so that users can change the default sorting, column widths, and filters to see the data that's important to them more easily.
