Setting-up the VPS (for users)

The "Data filter" settings of the VPS

The "Setup" dialog lists your data filters and lets you create and edit them

Data filters work as NAV filter on reading the data (either when the VPS ist started or on reloading) so that they are already effective at the data interface to make sure that only filtered data are handed over from NAV to the VPS. If the VPS Web Client is used in addition, the filtered data are used as well so that the Clients’ view always remains identical

The "Data Filters" area

This area informs you which data filters are currently active. The filters themselves are created and edited in the "Configure Filters" dialog (see below). You can apply filters for work centers, machine centers, and manufacturing orders.

Furthermore, you can decide whether the data filters dialog should be shown every time you start the VPS.

The "Configure Data Filters" dialog


Edit the filter settings by clicking the "Configure Data Filter" button to open the according dialog where you get an overview of your existing data filters and can create new ones.
