If you have built many tasks, instead of scrolling down to locate the task, you can try to use "Filters" to locate the task(s).
Octoparse allows you to use filters to organize your tasks automatically.
By using filters, you can view the tasks that meet those criteria instantly. You can also save different sets of filters for future convenience.
This tutorial will introduce the following parts:

1. How to set filters to find out tasks?
By clicking the "More" button on the top bar, you will see several options. You can select the filter criteria by ticking these boxes first (you can tick one or more).
There are 6 options for you to start first.

Under each option, there are further details for you to set.
1. Cloud Status
2. Local Status
3. Task Type
5. Cloud data extracted
You set the range of the number of Cloud data extracted to find out the target task(s).
6. Time completed(Cloud)
You can set the range of the date of Cloud task completed time to find out the target task(s).
If you want to remove filters, just click on the button "Reset".
2. Save filters for "Quick Filters"
You can also save filter setting(s) for future usage. For example, if we select "task type", we can select "Advanced Mode" or "Task Template".
After filters are set correctly, you can click "Save Filters".
After editing the name of the filter, you can click "Save" to save filters.
The filter you just saved will appear under "Quick Filters" on the sidebar menu. Click the expand icon to expand all the filters you've saved so far.
To better manage the filters you have saved, you can rename, duplicate, or delete any of them.
