Missing filter pane in Pages who are called via runmodal, is quite an issue for our customers. Please give us the filter pane back. :O
In some pages we use the datatype FilterPageBuilder as workaround so the customer can use filters on a page.
But that's in my oppinion a poor solution, cause you have to make an own action and after you apply the filter(s) you can not see that you set a filter or with which values you set the filter(s).
It would be awesome to have the filter pane back.
do you mean the ability to select a default filter column? if so, i will vote for this. i submitted this as well.
This is a request from 2019, should this not be on the short term roadmap by now?
Pleeeeeaaazzzzzze!!! It is frightening to see that this demand dates from 3 years ago and is still not implemented. Especially since it existed 20 years ago on the first versions of Navision for Windows (don't know about the DOS ones) and all the following ones. What is the point of adding functionalities if you make it harder to use them.
To remind you : In Navision and Dynamics versions, a simple clic on any Lookup gave access to a list where you could potentially find all the field of the subjacent table. It is this kind of features that made Naviion and Dynamics versions so popular. Quick access to full information.
This is just poor UI design. Why would you NOT want to be able to filter a lookup page? Can somebody shed a light as to why this decision was made? And when will it be rectified? I mean, it's not as if you need to develop new functionality - it's literally on every other page in the system.
I don't understand this choice :(
Yes, that is what this idea is about after all. And I agree it is essential to add this.
Also in the preview of BC19 (2021 Wave 2) it seems not to be possible to show the filter area when a page is opened in Lookup mode.
Beside the fact that it is therefore not possible to filter on fields that are not on the page it also makes flow fields on the page useless as the calculation cannot be done using the flow filters.
When will this functionality at last be implemented.
The most important is that users can check whether a filter has been applied or not and then the ability to reset / change the filters. Totally agree with Frédéric.
Please consider this as this is a feature which has been available in NAV since a decade!
Any update on this?
2 years have passed already... In some scenarios it's really annoying not to be able to filter on a ListPage. Adding all fields to the ListPage just to be able to filter is not really a nice solution.
