Adding Filters

Adding Filters


When creating a custom report, you can add filters that function as a control which produces a subset of data. 


In the relevant custom report, in the "Filters" tab,  select the filter that you require from the "Add" drop-down list.


These are the filters that can be used to constrain your report:


This code needs to be added into the relevant section of your SQL query together with a logical operator to specify how the filter works.

For example, let's add a course filter to our SQL query:

Step 1: Go to the "Filters" tab then choose to add the "Courses" filter.

Step 2: In the "Custom SQL" tab, edit the Custom SQL query by adding into the correct position (i.e. next to the course data table specification) within your SQL code.

Here is a sample SQL query when applying a course filter:


  u.firstname AS 'First Name',
  u.lastname AS 'Last Name',
  c.fullname AS 'Course Name',
  ROUND(e.progress,0) AS 'Progress',
  DATE_FORMAT(FROM_UNIXTIME(e.completiontime),'%d-%m-%Y') AS 'Complete Date'

FROM prefix_edwreports_course_progress AS e
JOIN prefix_user AS u ON e.userid = 
JOIN prefix_course AS c ON e.courseid =
