Applying an Analysis Filter Temporarily

Applying a filter temporarily allows you to quickly locate an analysis without having to create a permanent filter, as you may not be interested in referencing the analysis again. For example, if you have been asked to review a fire behavior analysis for a fire on a neighboring district, you can use the temporary filter to find the incident and the analysis in WFDSS, without adding a new filter to your analysis filter drop-down list.

When defining a temporary filter, you can use whichever criteria that best suits your search. In this case, you could search for the incident and locate all analyses for the incident; you could search for all analyses performed by a specific Fire Behavior Specialist or you could search for recent analyses for that particular unit to name a few.

You can apply a filter temporarily by selecting Edit Filter, which is available above the analysis list. Temporary filters are not saved to the filters drop-down list, and are lost if you create a new filter, view an existing filter, or if you log out of WFDSS. (To create a filter, see Creating Analysis Filters.)

To apply an analysis filter temporarily:

  1. From the Incident List, click Analysis. The Analysis List page appears.
  2. Click Clear to remove any previous filters.
  3. If necessary, expand the filter lists to view your selections and click the Blue expand arrow next to the filter heading.
  4. Select the Analysis Type(s) to include in the filter.
  5. Select the Date Filters related to the analysis you are filtering for.
  6. Select the appropriate Other Filters options.

    Use the check boxes, radio buttons, and drop-down lists as appropriate to make your selections. To use the slush buckets (Geographic Area, for example), click >> next to the item you want to include in your list. Selections appear in the right-hand bucket. To remove an item, click <<.

    • Incident privileges
    • State
    • Decisions
    • Acreage
    • Geographic Area
    • Jurisdiction
  7. Enter a comma-separated list of Unit IDs to filter on (e.g., CACND, CAALT, NCNCF).
  8. Enter all or part of the Incident Author name and click Apply Filter to limit your list to names that match your search criteria. Click >> next to each person you want to include in your criteria. The names appear in the list on the right.
  9. Enter all or part of the Analysis Author name and click Apply Filter to limit your list to names that match your search criteria. Click >> next to each person you want to include in your criteria. The names appear in the list on the right.
  10. To view specific incidents, enter all or part of the Incident Name, and then click Apply Filter to limit your list to names that match your search criteria. Click >> next to the incident names you want to include in your criteria. The names appear in the list on the right.
  11. Click Apply Filter Temporarily. The Analysis List reappears showing only those analyses that met your criteria, sorted by most recent Request Date.

If the Analysis List is empty, no analyses met all of your criteria. Go back to the Define Temporary Filters page and verify that you selected the correct criteria. Try removing some of your more restrictive criteria.
