FilterZen, the Filter Web Part for SharePoint, lets you dynamically filter everything in SharePoint with a wide range of filter types and unprecedented customizability.
A First-Class SharePoint Citizen.
All SharePoint Editions.
Works in all SharePoint editions and in all design modes.
Use it with SharePoint Foundation 2013 & 2010, SharePoint Server 2013 & 2010, Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, Standard or Enterprise.
Absolute Infrastructure Integration.
Utilizing Microsoft's own, fully supported and recommended, de-facto standard Web Part Connections protocol used by a great number of out-of-the-box and third-party components, FilterZen is fully compatible with both the browser-based Web Part Page Edit Mode and SharePoint Designer.
It's a Web Part. Use it anywhere:
All Web Part Pages — All List Views and Document Library Views and Forms — All Home pages — Search Results pages (in MOSS) — All pages and tabs in Document and Meeting Workspaces — All pages in Blog and Wiki web sites
Filter Everything That's Filterable...
All SharePoint and Custom Lists, Document Libraries, Data Views and other Web Parts.
SharePoint, Third-Party or Custom Lists.
Filter any columns in any of your Announcements, Contacts, Discussion Board, Links, Calendar, Tasks, Project Tasks, Issue Tracking, Survey or custom lists — whether on a Web Part page, a List Form page or even directly on a List View page.
SharePoint, Third-Party or Custom Libraries.
Filter any columns in any of your Document Libraries, Form Libraries, Wiki Page Libraries, Slide Libraries or your own custom document libraries — whether on a Web Part page, a Library Form or View page.
XML / XSLT-based Data Views.
Filter any columns in any of your SharePoint Designer-based or custom-coded XSLT business Data Views.
FilterZen integrates into the Web Part Connections infrastructure, just like the other, out-of-the-box SharePoint Filter Web Parts. Hence, whenever any given Web Part can receive filters via Connections, FilterZen can handle it.
We call it "Power-Filtering":
Quick to set up, built-in diagnostics, flexible URL handling, and more...
Page Request Filters: Any URL is OK (really).
Grab multiple filter values dynamically from the Web Part Page request context: the URL query string, a single URL parameter, SharePoint-typical URL formats (think 'k'), your own custom URL path structures, posted form data, server-side variables, you name it.
List Lookup, BDC & SQL Data Filters: Mash it All Up.
Grab filter values from any ADO.NET data source, Business Data Catalog (BDC) application, SharePoint List or Document Library, or have your users pick them on demand, sorted and pre-filtered by SQL query, View or custom CAML.
User Filters: Put Names to Faces.
Filter based on the current user, other dynamic users, or let your visitors pick a user filter value on demand, optionally sorted and pre-filtered by View or custom CAML.
Date Filters: Take Your Time.
Filter based on the current date or a pre-defined one, dynamically add or substract time spans or let your users pick a data filter value on demand.
Even More Filters — Optionally Interactive.
Convenient end-user interactive drop-down Choice filters, dynamic runtime Page Column filters and, naturally, the good old-fashioned, plain simple Text filters.
Across the Board: Powerful Capabilities.
Temporarily disable filters — control empty value handling — fall-back filter values — pre-filter choices on other list data — post-filter: lock out certain values or all-but-some — override all Web Part or filter settings via the URL — suppress invalid filter names — dynamically generated (one-click) interactive filters.
A matter of seconds, not minutes.
We made the activity of creating a simple list or data view filter with FilterZen incredibly easy and fast to do.
Step 1: connect the web part.
Step 2: select the columns to be filtered.
Step 3: go grab coffee.
Troubleshooting made easy.
You know the feeling: things that Should Theoretically Work, don't. Thankfully, FilterZen's Debug Output mode and diagnostic, contextual info messages reveal which filters your setup translates to in a breeze. It's already On by default in Edit Mode.
FilterZen can help you unleash and harness entirely new SharePoint solution design patterns and new, powerful combinators.
