Apply Filter Templates

Apromore now provides the ability to save a filter template that we have defined on an event log, and to apply the saved template to another log. For example, we can create a filter template on an event log containing all the cases of the production process that completed in June, and then copy it to an event log containing all the cases of the same production process for the month of July.

To create a filter template, select a log and double-click on it.
