Can a custom column in a report also be used as a filter for that same report?

Can a custom column in a report also be used as a filter for that same report? I currently have a custom column but do not see it appearing as a filterable option. The formula is returning a 1 or a 0 and I only want the report to bring back records with a 0 in that column.

Hi Heather,

Unfortunately not. You cannot use a custom column as a filter. We recommend exporting the report and filtering the values.

Thanks,

This is something we would find useful too but had the same problem. Ideally we wanted to only show entries where certain text appeared in the timesheet comments but are having to filter manually once exported.

We understand the concern here.

We have marked this as an Idea and updated our Product Management team. We will keep this thread updated in case of any progress on the same.

Currently we do not have the ability to filter by custom columns. We will look into it in the future and let you know if it gets implemented.
