Is it possible to setup two zulu_filterkeys for a Calendar? I have it Filtering by user, this works well. I would like to add a separate calendar based on the same table that Filters by user and status. So that the user see all of his items that are late.

Hi Bruce,

Sorry for not responding to this post earlier. We had some trouble with our mail notifications that new posts came in, and a few got by us :shock:

Unfortunately you can't do this. One possibility is to use a multi-line value in the filter field and search on it that way, i.e. concatenate the user and status into a single value.

I'm using a multiple-value filter with good results. Created an auto-enter calc field that concatenates the results of two other calculations. One has to force that calc to fire of course. For each record in the zulu calendar list, I fill in the staff ID, the bar separator (which is in my auto-calc), and the desired value of the second filter.

One could do this with as many values as you wanted; but rather than do that, I've combined multiple tests into the second underlying calc and specified a binary result, so that the desired filter is always of the form nnnn (staff ID) bar 1.
