Setting Up Agency Library Filters

Your greatest efficiency comes from having scalable and flexible report templates. Library Filters are data filters that are created and live outside of templates. They can be brought into a template from a universal list. The Filters' values are also customizable on an account by account basis allowing you the flexibility of using one template for multiple accounts even if those accounts filter a given data source using different values. This article explains how to create Library Filters at the agency setup level, how to customize the Filters at the account level, and how to insert the Filters into a template.
