Column Sort & Filter Icons

Dataset List with numbered Sorting and Filtering icons.

Each column has a column name has the following components to filter and/or sort records:

  1. Global Filter
  2. Column Name (Clicking this link sorts the list ascending or descending)
  3. Sort Order indicator (By using the CTRL + select, you can sort multiple columns)
  4. Filter icon
  5. Filter and Sort Reset link

Each column in the Dataset Submission List has two icons that perform a sort and a filter of that column.

  • Sorting a column

The Sort icon is also a Sort indicator which displays the current sort
a. When no sort is applied to the column, a neutral sort indicator is displayed.
b. Click the Sort icon to sort the column in ascending order.
c. Click the Sort icon a second time to sort the column in descending order.

  • Filtering a column

Clicking the Filter icon, opens a filter dialog box which allows the user to type in a word pattern. As the pattern is typed, the filter dynamically eliminates the items not meeting the criteria. When the user completes the word pattern, the resulting list is filtered to meet the criteria.

Comparing Two Dataset Submissions

The Compare Datasets feature allows LEA users to view a Compare Dataset list by fiscal year, or by fiscal year by reporting period, that includes the relevant datasets from the Draft, Submission, and Published Dataset Lists.

Users may select up to two datasets from the Compare Datasets list for the same entity to compare.

How to Compare Two Dataset Submissions

Dataset List Columns

The Dataset Submissions list has up to 14 columns which can be reduced to increase the remaining columns width. Each column has a sort and filter icon and a column name that can be used to quickly sort the column in ascending or descend order. See the Sorting a column and Filtering a column section of this guide for more information on how to use those features.

Add or Remove Columns

  1. From the Dataset Submission List click the Column Selector dropdown list box. Note: The list box will display all columns and a checkbox next to each column name.

  2. Select or unselect each column you would like to remove or add. The resulting list will update as you select or unselect each checkbox.
