Manage filter list

A filter list always contains a Default filter tree after you install the app successfully. The filter tree will display in all collections page by default. When you create a new filter and apply it to a specific collection, this filter will replace the default filter in that collection.

You can Enable / Disable a filter by pressing on a filter row.
