Much needed Smart List Suggestion...

Postby elationdjs on 04 Jul 2014, 16:30

Just come across something now,

In Smart lists I am scanning for Low Quality Bitrate tracks. As it is the general filter brings up about 125 tracks, I would like then to add another criteria which EXCLUDES artist title contains **** - to make this work you need to add AND and OR Variables.

So my filter would be

Match Any search criteria:

Audio Quality is (RED Unhappy face) **OR**
Audio Quality is (Orange Unhappy face)
**AND** EXCLUDE title which includes Ambient in it

They key element here is the ''AND'' and ''OR'' behaviour which doesn't exist at the moment from what I can tell.

At the moment from playing around I can't see how this can be done. I just want to quickly do this and the reason I want to exclude Ambient is I have a bunch of Videos which are visuals only and are obviously messing with the results.

Hope that makes sense.

Cheers John

Use bitrate instead of colour for this.

More general is that the ability for users to have the and/or options is that they also need grouping. This makes it very hard to build a user friendly gui and have it work.
In the current you sometimes have to add a field multiple times but the advantage is that it reads pretty easy.

Thanks for your reply,

Your workaround proves exactly what I'm saying. If you have a multiple filter you want to perform with an exclude statement you can't without a AND/OR string. I would have thought to a user building a simple or complex search with AND/OR strings would be self explanatory. Maybe I'm wrong, just would like to see its implementation in a future build. Just cause it's there a user doesn't have to use it. ☺

The more I'm getting used to the smart list function, the more I'm using it but, limited when trying to do complex filters.

Don't get me wrong, very much like smart filters just trying to add an improvement.

The basic logic seems simple if you use a few lines. Behind the scenes it is really difficult to translate it all back and forth between gui and instruction.

Though filtering functions get more powerful I've mainly seen user gui get only more simple. For software I resell it reduced helpdesk load and took away development restrictions due to backwards compatability.

Having written an in company software tool I know how hard it can be for developers to write a proper instruction. Especially on the true/false condition that should exclude the opposite
