FilterPoint - Troubleshooting

I can't see the filter web part in the web part gallery.

Ensure that the feature is activted in Site Actions > Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features


The list isn't showing anything when I select a filter

Turn on the Show Applied Filters option and verify that what your sending matches the field names in the receiving web part.

For example :-

In this screen-shot the following filters are being passed through

  • The filter labelled Priority is passing the value (1) High through to the Title column - this is likely a mistake.
  • The filter labelled Assigned To is passing the value "Fred Flintstone" through to the Assigned To column.

Check :-

  • Do the Filter Name and the lists field name match?
  • Is the Field Type correct?
  • Is the format correct for People Picker fields?


"One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields."

I see this error on the list web part, what does it mean?

This occurs if you are sending a filter with a Filter Name that doesn't match a field in the list view web part. Please double check the names is use - you can verify the information being sent with the Show Applied Filters option.
