Re: Individual column filtering in Odoo


I agree with Olivier that the way to go if you want to search directly for
certain field is to include it as a search field on the view, and going
down with the arrows, but please improve saved filters, recreating in the
same form as you put originally filters and group by options before saving
the filter, and not grouping them in one facet. This would be a very huge
improvement for usability.
