Results overview

The Results overview screen is the hub for most Quality Control and QESH Management functionalities and likely your first stop in AlisQI. It's a feature-rich screen that provides real-time data for every analysis set and selection list. It's also the starting point for many data actions, from setting specifications to performing statistical analyses. 

This article shows you how to open a results overview screen, create filters, and manage results data. We also show you how to generate reports and access other data management features.

Opening an overview

Open any results overview from the AlisQI menu bar. Data in the results overview can then be sorted and filtered on every column.

Number of results per page

You can change the number of results per page in the application settings.

Sorting and filtering


To sort overview data, click a column header (1) and then select the desired sort direction (2). In the example below, we look at pH values in a descending order.


To narrow the results on display:

  1. Click a column header to open the filter window.
  2. Set a filter.
  3. Click Apply in the filter window.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 to filter other column data.
  5. Click the Apply button in the toolbar.

Steps 4 and 5 allow you to set filter conditions for multiple columns. While they are optional, adding extra filters enable you to save time and makes your results overview very specific.

The rationale for the two "Apply " buttons is that you can set filter conditions for multiple columns.

Filter for (non-) empty values

You can filter for empty values in a text column. Enter NULL in the filter field and then click the Apply buttons. Then, the overview screen will display records with an empty cell in that column.

To hide records with empty cells, enter NOTNULL in the filter field


When filtering text columns, you can use wildcards to represent any character.

The wildcard operator is the underscore _.

For example, filtering on "_123" will return "A123", "B123", "0123", "$123", etc.

Save a filter

You can save a filter and use it later.

  1. Create a filter (as described above).
  2. With the filter active, click the Save toolbar button (next to Apply).
  3. Enter a filter name and click Save. AlisQI saves the filter criterion and stores the named filter. 

Any user with read permissions can save a filter, or use a saved filter.

Each row in a Results overview has a toolbar on the right side of the screen.

From left to right these symbols represent the following:

What is an intuitive quality dashboard and why is it valuable?

Manufacturers collect large amounts of data to ensure their products meet the highest quality standards. But monitoring processes, analyzing data, and making it accessible at all times can be a cumbersome task, especially when dealing with hundreds of products.

Quality dashboards simplify that work by enabling users to filter and summarize relevant information into easy-to-understand visual snapshots.

Reporting and Management

The Results overview is your entry point for many functionalities.


Click the Reporting button to display a list of reporting tools, including Excel download, statistics, reports, and charts.

You can also access charts by clicking a column heading. The range of chart options varies with the type of column data.


Click the More button to open a menu of links to specifications management, the analysis set, and workflows. You can change the number of results per page in the application settings.

Other functions

The More button gives access to other functionalities, such as the history of all results and deleted results.
