Once a filter has been created and optimized, the operator will want to take action in order to achieve the desired results.
Before you can utilize a filter it must be named and saved.
Click Save to choose from the following options.
The Save option saves the filter for future use.
Save applies any changes made to the currently loaded filter. If this is a new filter, you will have to enter a name for the filter (see step 2c).
Click Save > Save As to save the filter with a new name.
When saving a new filter, or if you chose to save a filter using Save > Save As, the Enter Filter Name dialog appears.
Enter the name of the new filter and click OK.
Once a filter has been created and saved there are two different places to load a filter.
Applying a filter to the Offline or Production Tree is beneficial for the following reasons:
Allows the operator to limit the number of mailboxes and sub folders viewed within the DigiScope® console.
Once a filter is applied, Restore and Export actions will only be taken against the unfiltered items. For example, executing Export to PST will only Export the mailboxes and sub folders that have not been filtered.
From the Offline or Production pane, click on the Filter Selection drop-down area and select the previously created filter.
The Filtering Application dialog displays the progression while the filter is applied to objects within the selected source.
Selecting a specific Exchange Storage Group as the source and applying a filter will cause all databases mailboxes, folders and sub folders within the selected storage group to have the filter applied.
Selecting a specific Exchange Database as the source and applying a filter will cause all mailboxes, folders and sub folders within the selected Exchange Database to have the filter applied.
Selecting a specific mailbox as the source and applying a filter will cause the filter to be applied only to the selected mailbox, folders and sub folders.
