Narrow By

Use the Narrow By pane to filter your activities by date, type (such as searches only or emails only), or by Client/Matter. For example, to display only your activities from today, select Today in the Date category.

To select several criteria in a category, select Select multiple.


The criteria in the Narrow By pane depend on the activities in the list. For example, if you have no activities from yesterday, you won't see Yesterday listed in the Date category.

Activities may appear in more than one category. For example, a legal search you ran today would appear under Today in the Date category and also under Legal search in the Type category.

To return to a previous results set after filtering one or more times, select Close level next to your selections at the top of the Narrow By pane to close that version. When you have closed all the versions, your original results are displayed on the right side of the results view.

You can also return to your original results by selecting Clear.
