    Hello Duncan, you could use the dynamic folders for such filtering. See here:

    Hi Vassilios, I've noticed that as per the limitations listed on that page, you cannot achieve what I've mentioned in my post.


    1. Each property of a Basic Element can only be used once in Selection 1."

    I need to use the 'name' field twice, once to specify 'status' and again to remove those that 'fault'. Can we get this sorted?

    Hi Duncan, could you give a concrete example of what you would like to achieve?

  • Duncan Greene

    I've not got the example to hand of the 'same selection 1' issue above, but the exclusion operator would resolve it in a heartbeat.

    Another example is that below, I just need to quickly return group objects whose function is switching, but I don't wish to include all of the group objects with 'group' in their name.

    I'm well aware that I could use Dynamic Folders to achieve this, but the problem is they search over all group objects in the project unless you narrow down to a particular device name/address, etc. This is fine if you happen to be doing the operation on 1 or 2 devices, but when you are needing to do it on hundreds at different times, Dynamic Folders are too slow.

    A simple:

    Object Function:Switching && Name: != "group" that you could paste in would do the trick far quicker.

    (P.S. That leads me to another bug with the searching currently, the term below:

    Object Function:Switching

    does not work out of the box because the "Object Function" clause itself needs to be enclosed in quotes.

    Vassilios, another example here.

    I've got about 200 PIRs. Some have a description of "clc", some have a description of "occupancy", and some have no description.

    I need to return a list of all of those that don't have a description. Not possible since you removed the option to be able to use the Description field in a query more than once.

    Any updates on the above?
