  • Select Add a new advanced elementary condition to generate a condition based on a comparison of device data fields and values.
  • Select Add a new complex condition to define a condition that filters other defined conditions.
  • Select Delete current condition to remove a selected condition.
  • Select Move current condition forward or Move current condition backward to change the order of your conditions accordingly.

6. Continue to click hyperlinked text and use the cascading menus to select filtering criteria.
