    How to use the filters

    • If you don’t select any filter, you see all your licenses
    • The Locations filter is only visible if your company has multiple locations and if you have access to all locations
    • In each filter, you can always select one or more items
    • You will only see items that apply to you
      • If you don’t have any ArtPro license, ArtPro will not be visible
      • You only see the locations with valid licenses
    • You can remove items in three ways:
      1. By clicking Clear all filters at the top-right
      2. By removing them below the filter box
      3. By canceling them in the filter list

    How does it work?

    • License types: if you select ‘Permanent licenses’ and ‘Network Licenses’, you will only see your permanent network licenses (AND)
    • Products: if you filter on ArtiosCAD and ArtPro, you will see both licenses for ArtPro and ArtiosCAD (OR)
    • Locations: if you filter on Belgium and France, you will see all licenses in Belgium and France (OR)

    How to create a csv-report with your licenses?

    1. In any of the views, click 'Export to CSV'
    2. The CSV-report that will be created contains all licenses even if you have applied filters in your view.
    3. Using the filter-options in Excel, you can apply the same filters.
