Filter Folders


Each user has the option to create folders to help organize their filters listed under each person type.

Folders allow quick access to filters instead of scrolling through a long list.

  • If person types is enabled, separate filter folders will display under each person type selected from the People page dropdown.
  • When person types is enabled, shared filters cannot be shared between different person types.
  • If person types is not enabled, all filters and filter folders will display on the Student page.


  • Each user can create an unlimited number of folders.
  • By design, there is only one level of filter folders; users cannot create secondary folders or subfolders.

  • Each filter can only display in one folder at a time and can always be moved to a different folder when needed.
