Filtering

You can filter which voyages you would like to see by using the button in the top right corner

You can separately filter commitments and allocated voyages (open positions) by many different criteria. If you select several options in one criterion, an OR filter is applied. If you filter by different categories at the same time, these are combined using the operator AND.
