"OR" in filter rules

"OR" in filter rules

There is currently no "Or" capability in filter rules, which makes it very difficult/inefficient at times to filter.  For instance: assume I only want to see walls that contain CMU or Concrete in the type name.  I can create a filter for Just the concrete walls easily, and do the same for the CMU.  But one filter with OR could easily accomplish the task.

Yes 2019  Now has OR capability for the view filters, but NOT the schedule filters. This new interface REALLY needs to be added to the schedule filters. Like stated above this would save endless amounts of time and avoid adding extraneous parameters.

It have very usefull if we could choose a condition OR to filter in schedule.

 

In this case, that dont have "OR" we have to create another schedule view, to do it by another way.

being able to filter schedules by the parameter of and/or would help when I need specific room numbers side by side and then the random corridor number. Ex. 112, 113 & corridor 111! Makes it tough to do this! Again, Simple and sweet!

Why is this one labeled "Accepted" and not "implemented" this feature has already been released w/ 2019, I am right?

I'd like to see this feature apply to filter schedules as well before I would consider it to be fully implemented. Hopefully that's coming through soon.

Agreed. Expanding the logic to all places rules filters can be applied would be a full implementation. As it's only view filters at this time, it's useful but not what most of my clients or myself were looking for.

This feature is in the view filters, not in schedules. OR in schedules would be epic. It would radically change the usefulness of schedules across multiple categories.

I specifically asked for OR in schedules 🙂

Improve the schedule filter functionality to allow for the creation of many filters with AND/OR capabilities (grouping would be nice), and the ability to toggle if those filters are applied to the schedule with a simple checkbox next to it.

Revit 2020 is still without it! They think inserting pdf into revit is more important...

Allow filter criteria conditions by And/Or.

Example: Select views placed on 400s OR 500s OR 600s sheets. Result: Select views on 400s through 600s sheets.

Amazing!

I've been on a long project in 2018. 

Thanks for the reference!

The introduction of "OR" in View Filters dramatically improved the efficiency, and reduced the number, of filters needed in a project. Currently in schedules the only option to filter in or out is "AND" which leads to a large number of schedules to get multiple information. As view filters continue to improve, schedule filters are left behind.

 

For example, including Curtain Walls in a Window Schedule is difficult as they are in different categories and many work-arounds are clunky. A Multi-Category schedule with an "OR" option would allow a user to select the entire Window Category and also wall type Curtain Walls in the same schedule. This will also help tremendously for Specialty Equipment and other categories that have very few subcategories by default yet have a wide range of components.

I did search before commenting, and that idea did not come up. Thanks for the link, I will add my vote.

Please add all kind of logical operation: also exclude (NOT), XOR.

A filter "OR" rule in schedules would be a really useful tool.

 

I'm creating separate room schedules for 2-3 rooms in a building with approx 500 rooms in total. I'm away to investigate all the workarounds.... 🤞
