FilterPoint Manual - Default Value

This part of the FilterPoint configuration tells the filter how to filter by default, before user intervention. For example, you might wish to have your team presented with all high priority tasks by default.

For this to work it has to match exactly one of the options in your list of filter values otherwise it will be ignored.

You can use simple formula in the Default Value for special cases, e.g. (All) (Empty) [Today] and [Me]

(All) and (Empty)

For filter styles that support these options you can use (All) or (Empty) in the default value if you've enabled these options in the Filter Style configuration.

Current User

You can use the [Me] notation which defaults to the current user.

Date filters

When filtering using the Date picker filter you can set the default value explicitly (e.g. "12/25/2010") or using the [Today] notation which defaults to the current date.

You can also add or remove a number of days, for example





7 days ago
