Hi there,

When you say custom search filters, what do you mean? Can you please elaborate. 

there are options like using Query Builder, plus on the Advanced search page you can search for almost any field depending on your configuration.

Hi Ajay,

Thank you for your reply.

The customer would like to be added a filter in the request search page which will allow him to display all the requests that were updated in the current month , without having to select a specific date of start and month-end using the filter that already exist "last update date from -- to ".

Best regards,

Sahar

Hello Sahar,

There is not a direct way to add a that kind of filter in search page but there are 2 ways as I can think of:

1) Create a custom portlet which has an internal criteria to search those..
2) Create searches (e.g. Jan 2019, Feb 2019,...) for each month manually and save them.

--Remember to give Kudos if you like the solution.

Morning Sahar, completely agree with what Murat is saying; I would recommend to go for custom portlets.

On the same token it would be good to log an enhancement request with Microfocus to have such features, it would be real handy to have general filters like  'last updated in' 7, 14,30 days etc ... 

good luck

Re: Can we add a custom filter on the Search Requests page on PPM ?

I agree it would be a nice Usability Enhancement idea. The way I'd see it is to have the option to pick between the current date range or another set of two "within the last" fields - a number text box and a drop down list with hours/days/weeks/months/years (default value could be days). 

Ajay, if you really think this should go into the product you know what to do, right? :)

Extra date "within" criteria added for Last Update date & Creation Date on both Request List portlet & Request Search page.

It should be part of PPM 9.53 due for release at the end of May (subject to change without notice as usual).

Ajay, you can already test the new feature on our beta/EDRP instance.

Cheers,

Etienne.

Hi Etienne,
That's a great news. Thanks for the update. It would have been great, if this feature would have been introduced, when the same functionality introduced for search reports page.

Thanks
Auro

Re: Can we add a custom filter on the Search Requests page on PPM ?

@Etienne_Canaud Can we have similar functionality in Search Resources page as well?

As administrative work, we update the resources profiles of people who were created every day through the resource load and it is difficult for us know to how many and which users were created on that day. We currently have a portlet which checkes for the new users and then we manually pick those users and update their resource profiles.

Having such filters in Search Resources would benefit us and many others I believe.

Hi Arun,
Indeed it's a good idea. Since you've got access to the beta environment, feel free to create an ER in it.
