List Filter WebPart vs Column Heading Filtering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone please tell me the advantage of using a List Filter web part rather than just filtering on a column or columns in a list view?

    There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what you are trying to accomplish.

  • Sharepoint list filter web part is to pass the values from one column filter to show the corresponding matches in that specific list

    if you filter the list on the columns , you can do mulit column filters using list setting option.

  • I don't see the advantage of this over just using the column header to filter. I implemented it on a test page and I can't see that it offered any distinct advantages. What am I overlooking?  The only thing seems advantageous is that you could save some horizontal scrolling by not including the column that one might otherwise filter by.
