Creating filters

With filters you can delimit the results displayed so you only see the ones that satisfy the conditions you are after (e.g. respondents who answered ‘Yes’ to a particular question).

There are two ways of creating filters. The first works well when you need to create filters from e.g. background questions like age, gender etc. Search the question in the Analyze-view and click the gear on the top right corner of the graph and select: Create filters. The filters will show up in the right hand box called ‘Filters’.


The second way is to create each filter manually from the ‘Filters’ function. Here you can also edit the filters created in the first step.


With the buttons on the left you can add and remove filters. The Plus button adds a new filter and the Minus button removes the filter selected. The Copy icon makes a copy of the chosen filter.

You can give your filter a name by double-clicking its name (‘New filter’ below).

Adding a filter

1. Create a new filter with the Plus button on the left.

2. Choose whether the filter has to apply to all conditions or only some of them.

3. Select which the first condition is to apply to.

There are several different conditions that you can choose from. Usually the condition is a question in the survey, but you can also filter by time, recipient source etc.

4. Specify the content of the condition.

In the middle dropdown menu you will select the condition to be satisfied. For example, you can specify that the answer has to be, or is not to be, one of the options.

In the last menu you will choose the option in question that the condition concerns.

5. If you wish to add many conditions to the same filter, add the next condition with the Plus button on the right and repeat parts 3 and 4.

6. Double-click the name of the filter to give it a title.
