Learn how to create sophisticated filters that identify transactional data of interest.

Go to the Data table tab

  1. Select the icon in the MindBridge sidebar
    You will go to the Organizations page.
  2. Select View in line with the desired organization, or click anywhere in the organization row. 
    You will go to the Engagements page.
  3. Select View in line with the desired engagement, or click anywhere in the engagement row.
    You will go to the Data page.
  4. Select View Analysis in line with the desired analysis.
    You will go to the Analyze page.
  5. Select the Data table tab.

Tip: If you are already in an analysis, simply use the sidebar ( Sidebar_open-close_icon.svg ) to open the Analyze menu ( Analyze_menu_icon.svg ), then select the name of the analysis you want to see and go to the Data table tab.

Use the filter builder

  1. Select Filter Builder to open the filtering menu.
  2. Add a condition to see a list of available filters.
  3. Select the filter you would like to apply.
  4. To add an "or" statement, Add a condition to the same row.
    To add an "and" statement, Add a condition to the next row.
  5. Select Add row to add additional "and" conditions.
    For example, if you select Assets "or" Liabilities "and" Debit Value more than $1,000.00, MindBridge will display all transactions in those 2 accounts with a debit value greater than $1,000.00.

Use Cancel any time to discard your most recent changes.

Using "is not" rules

  1. Once you have chosen a condition, select the word is in the condition field.
  2. Select is not from the menu.
    For example, if you change the Debit Value more than $1,000.00 condition to is not, MindBridge will display all debit transactions less than $1,000.00.

Remove conditions

To remove an individual condition, select the X icon beside the condition.

To remove an entire row, select Clear Row in line with the intended row.

When you are satisfied with your filter conditions, Apply the filter to the Data Table.

Tip: The filters you apply to this dashboard will persist when navigating to other tabs in general ledger analyses, including Risk overview, Ratios, and Audit assertion risk.
