Node list filters limit the list of skills that appear as a function of the OBS node. For example, in the screen shot below a manager in the Eng-SW department will not see the Filtered Items in skill drop down lists; he will only see the Available Items.
Select an OBS type.
Select a Field (list) to be constrained.
Select the OBS node to be restricted.
Highlight list items in the available items list that do not apply to the selected node and move them to the Filtered Items box with thearrow button.
List items that are filtered in a parent node are filtered in all children. Child nodes can have additional restrictions that further limit the list when they are the target node.
