  2. Select a criteria from the drop-down listbox on how you want to filter your data. The options are ‘and, ‘or’ or ‘not’.

  3. Then you can add as many meta-column restrictions as you like by clicking on the Green plus icon icon.

    The logic filter is then applied as follows:

    • You start with the set of all non-hidden users and devices.
    • User and device meta-columns are applied directly to those sets of users and devices.
    • Profile meta-columns first translated into a set of users and devices connected to the matching profiles and then applied to the set of users and devices.

    If your selection of meta-columns was such that it didn’t directly affect one or other of the sets, then the complete set is used. Therefore,

    • If you select a device meta-column, the complete set of users will be used.
    • If you select a user meta-column, the complete set of devices will be used.
    • If you select a profile meta-column, then both users and devices will be filtered.
  4. Next, having produced a filtered set of possible users and devices, the statistics are calculated as follows:

    • Recent tasks have to have been run by a possible user on a possible device in order to count.
    • Device connections have to have been made by a possible user on a possible device.
    • Accounts have to be linked to a possible device.
