The Append function allows you to add filters.
Filters are used to sort and segment respondents in a report. You can filter a table/graph to up to 5 levels. Filters can either be user defined variables or questions.
Filters can be useful for different purposes. For example, if the HR department wants answers/reports based on responses from a specific department. Another example, create a report with responses from all of your customers, that are under the age of 15 and customers who have bought the product within the last 6 months.
