commented on A simple date range filter for donations isn't available?
Hi Roel – as Bill mentioned, for this approach to work, after you add donation Criteria A, you need to click “Add group row” on that same row (off to the right of Criteria A), and then select donation history Criteria B through that group row menu. (By layering-on donation criteria within the same group row, it creates an “object search”).

But, if you instead just click “Add criteria” below Criteria A, adding Criteria B as it’s own row in the filter, then it will work as you described it. You’ll get repeat donors who have a slice of their donation history that meets Criteria A, plus a slice of their donation history that meets Criteria B — but those slices may not meet both A and B.

(Note: when using group rows to create a donation history “object search”, you’re not restricted to the two criteria I used in this example; you’ll get similar behavior for any of the criteria available when you click “Add group row” on an initial donation filter row).

commented on Add ability to tag user when they complete a path
Given you can already filter for people who’ve completed a specific path, and you can view a person’s complete path history under [Signup] > Paths, I’m curious to learn you’d want to further duplicate that logged data in tag form? In other words, what underlying needs would a tag meet that aren’t met by the filter and path view?
