Using an Existing Filter or Group in the KSU Advisor Center


Advisors using the KSU Advisor Center can use an existing filter or group by following this guide:

Filters and groups are ways to modify the display of your advisees list.

  • Filters dynamically select advisees based on criteria. The advisees meeting that criteria are displayed when a filter is run.
  • Groups are static lists of advisees, only advisees added as members of the group are displayed.

Advisors can use a Filter or Group to focus on a smaller group of advisees that meet specific advising needs.
