Description of Visible Filter Fields

Column - Select the column you'd want to filter down your data with.


Component - This determines the visual input field that users are interacting with, such as a plain-text Input where they can type in a value, or a Select Dropdown displaying a list of possible values.

Note πŸ“: For the 'Select Dropdown' type, the available filter values are autogenerated based on the unique values in your spreadsheet, so no configuration is required.


Operator - Determine the method used for comparing data. Most of the time, you'll want to use Equals or Contains, depending on if you want an exact match or a partial match.
