If you are a leader or someone who has been tasked with responding to people in Joyous, you can filter the conversations visible in your live feed.

Types of filters

There are three types of filters in Joyous.


1. General filters. 

  • These come from the people data sent to Joyous by your organisation.
  • Common filters include: Location, Division/Department, Business Unit, Tribe, Squad, etc.


2. Question filters.

  • These include Campaign, Sentiment, Category, Question, and Conversation Starter.
  • Additionally, Current Round and Previous Round make it easy to filter to the most recent conversations.


3. People filters.

  • People filters include [Person's name], [Person's] team, My Direct Reports, and My direct reporting line.
  • Filtering to a person, team, your direct reports, or your direct reporting line will show you only conversations relating to those people. 

How to apply filters

There are two ways you can apply filters: from the filter panel, or by typing in the filter bar.
