Implementing a filter action in the Documents List Pane in Sanity.io

Last updated: May 23, 2023
๐Ÿ‘‹ I was wondering if there's a way to implement a filter action in the Documents List Pane? (Same place as the "Sort by Title" Action and the like). I know that you can create a "folder" and group them by GROQ filter like "Posts By Category". But the UX feels kinda subpar.If anyone has any pointer, it'd would be greatly appreciated.

No, this isnโ€™t a possibility but the latest version of the Studio does add a search field to the top of lists to type in your own filter.

, hmm, if what you are asking is whether you can filter an
S.documentList()
, I think that's pretty possible as I've been using it hard lately ๐Ÿ™‚
Here's a v3 doc page at a point where it's showing you how to do this. What they're making overall builds on this, but the Groq params-filtered lists are right here:

Hope that helps, and that I didn't get the wrong end of the stick here! Things move fast in help-land, so any of us can do that :)

Yeah, I know we can manually create a grouping. But I was looking for a way to filter it through the dropdown action list at the top. Which sadly is not possible right now. Thanks a bunch anyway ๐Ÿ™Œ . Appreciated
