Quick Filtering by Name and Date

  • Finding a record in a list of records is now much quicker and easier thanks to new filtering boxes at the top of the window. For example, to view all Individuals with a given surname, just type the surname into the Surname filter field at the top of the window.
  • Filtering options are available for all record types, wherever record are listed (such as in Selector dialogs for reports). The filtering options available depend on the record type.
