  • We should create a string list parameter which consists  of all possible flag values Filter Parameter definition
  • Right-click on the parameter option and select show parameter control 

  • And the create a calculated feild by using formula

  • CONTAINS([Tag], [FilterParameter])

  •  Put the calculated feild on the filter card and click the "True" box so that only rows that fulfil the formula above are displayedFlag Filter on Filters shelf
