Filter Tab for Creating a Data Export in Core HR

The "Filters" tab allows you to filter the output of the export. The "Filter" tab is available with the "Advanced Mode" has been selected from the "Properties" tab.

For most exports, you will use this feature to exclude any test employees in the system. It is recommended when adding test employees, you use a standard naming convention. For example, if all of your test employees have the last name "Test", you can have the filter exclude any Employee with the last name of Test from the export's output. 

You will also use this feature when creating COBRA files. For New Hire (DOL, NPM) files you will filter the data for export reasons, Employee Added and Dependent Added. For QE files you will filter the data for export reasons, Employee Terminated and Dependent Terminated.
