In this article we will be seeing how to configure key filters in SharePoint 2010.

Key Filters appear just below the navigation hierarchy. Refer this article to configure navigation hierarchy. Key Filters operate similar to the navigation hierarchy. They are used to filter the view of lists / document libraries.

  • Content Type
