You use FlowFilter fields to set ranges on the calculations that are shown in. For example, if a FlowField contains the total of customer entries, then you can use a FlowFilter to see the total for a single month or range of months. In this example, the FlowFilter field is a date field. You can set up FlowFilter fields to show information that is based on other filters such as business units, departments, or projects.
FlowFilter fields are not saved in the database. Instead, they are stored for each window on an individual computer so users have their own filters.
In the Classic client, you can have a FlowFilter field as the SourceExpr value for a control on a form. When you run the form, you can select a value for this control and filter the data that is displayed in the form.
In the RoleTailored client, you cannot have a FlowFilter field as the SourceExpr value for a control on a page. If you do, then the control on the page is not editable, and you cannot select a value and filter the data that is displayed in the page. When you transform a form with a FlowFilter control to a page, we recommend that you specify that the control is deleted from the transformed page in the transformation input.

To enable filtering data on a page, you can add a Filter pane to the page and use limit totals. For more information, see the Page Controls and Parts section of.
