To request early access, contact your Customer Success Manager. Planview, at its own discretion, reserve the right to accept or reject a customer request to enable a feature that is in Beta / Controlled Availability (i.e. “Beta software”) state. If a customer’s request is approved,  an addendum to the Planview agreement will be required prior to the enablement of the feature in the customer environment, to address legal terms related to the use of Beta software.

How it Works

Administrators can add multiple rules to predefined filters when adding or editing a lookup filter for Custom Actions or fields with a Reference to Object data type. Multiple rules are combined logically using the “AND” operator.

  1. The option to add multiple rules to predefined filters is available when adding or editing a Lookup Filter for a Custom Action or a Reference to Object field.

  2. When you are adding a basic filter, there is a new option to add a new rule.

  3. Clicking Add new rule adds another filter line, where you can define another rule.

  4. When specifying the condition and referencing a field for the conditional value:
    1. You now select the origin of the field (Source, Target, or User) rather than only referencing the target object.

    2. You then select the field.
