The Filter drop-down provides another way to further refine the elements found in the Results. There are three kinds of filters available:

Built-In Filters

There are three built-in filters found on the Explore tab: <Annotation>, <Model>, and <Ideate Audit>. The <Ideate Audit> filter contains the list of Revit categories that require the special attention of the BIM Manager. It’s recommended that this list be reviewed on a weekly basis to ensure quality control of the Revit project.

Refer to Project Auditing for Revit Modeling with Ideate Explorer for more information on <Ideate Audit>.

There are four hard-wired filters found on the Navigate tab: <Legends>, <Schedules>, <Sheets> and <Views>.  

Ideate Filters

Ideate Filters provide a dynamic, customizable, and rule-based method to quickly filter Revit model elements based on your specified parametric conditions. These filters are similar to a Revit filter, but have greater access to the Revit data and include custom properties not available to Revit Filters. Learn more in this help topic: Ideate Filters

Revit Filters

Any Revit filters associated with the current project will also be available for use as a filter within the Explore tab. The Revit filters will be listed under the Ideate Filters and are designated with italics as shown above. Learn more at How Can I Create a Custom Filter in Revit with Ideate Explorer?

NOTE: Sheet and View-based custom filters can be used within Ideate Explorer, but only while on the Explore tab.
