Kanban Diagram Options - Filters

The 'Filters' page can be used in conjunction with the Package search defined on the 'Configuration' page, should you want to apply additional filtering.

It is possible to import a model search that has already been created, or to create new filters here exactly as you would for any other model search.

When adding any of these searches or filters, you must also select at least one Package for the search or filter to work in; you do this on the 'Configuration' page of this 'Kanban' dialog.
