Filtering on the Dependency Assign page
When you select Assign on the Upstream or Downstream Dependency grid you will get a listing of Portfolio Items that are pre-filtered to the selected project and the portfolio item Type of the selected portfolio item. These filters cannot be cleared, but they CAN be changed.
To change the filters, click in the Filter field and select Project or Type. Once you select a different project, the selected project that shows in the pre-selected filter will go away and be replaced by the new filtered project selection. Same with Type. Once you select another Type value, the pre-selected one goes away.
Now, after you have changed the filters, any additional filters you select will be add as an OR filter. This will also enable the Clear All Filters button, which will reset the filters BACK to the original pre-selected filters.
One more thing to note is that the filters will show everything that matches the filter in the selected project and its child projects.
