Stackla's Advanced Filter functionality allows you to create a specific set of rules to assist with complex display requirements.
This process can be achieved when creating or editing a Filter, using the options, AND / OR / NOT.
To get started, go to Curate > Manage Filters > Create Filter (or Edit an Existing one), and under the Tags drop-down, there is an 'Advanced' tab. Select this to get started.
Below is a diagram to explain how the Advanced Filter compiles the set of rules.
Condition - A stand-alone rule which is created within the advanced tab. A condition can sit independently or within a group.
Group - A group is a series of conditions created which can have their own rules set along with the overall rule.
Overall Rule - The left hand drop down menu, the independent conditions have to meet this rule for content to be displayed. The groups have to have at least one condition which matches in order for content to be displayed.
The overall rule has two options which you can choose:
- Match All = All of the groups must have at least one condition met. If only conditions are created, those conditions must be met.
- Match Any = As long as one of the conditions, either within a group or within a singular condition has been met, the content will be displayed.
Operator - The ability to determine whether to include or exclude. The '=' means include and the '!=' means do not include.
Example of a condition
Tags = ‘Facebook Video’ | ‘Instagram Image’
In this example, you are interested displaying content from the Tag, 'Facebook Videos', and the Tag, 'Instagram Images'. To achieve this, you would need to set up the following rule:
Create a Group for the Tag, ‘Facebook Video’ and a Condition for the Tag, ‘Instagram Image'. This will combine both Tags together to be considered as one search.
