Hi! I would like to exclude any test with the location LQC, which we use only for students. I read the forum post regarding Stop on Match, but our version doesn't have that option.
The filter I've tried looks like this:
When LOCATION = LQC end (Exclude)
I have made it the 2nd filter (our first filter is Unreceived tests, but all tests ordered with location LQC would be Received...

It would help to know which version you are using. In versions without the 'stop on match' feature, if you have any Inclusive type filter defined it will override any Exclusive type filters. So if the inclusive filter is above the exclusive filter and something in the test matches filtering stops there for that test. If the exclusive filter is above the inclusive filter, even if the first one excludes the test the inclusive will come behind and mark it as approved. So an exclusive filter has no effect no matter where you place it.
To make this work with older versions you can add your LQC filter to the end of the inclusive filter. So if your inclusive filter looks like this:
you can modify it to look like this:
Hope this helps,
PS: You could also update to the latest version. Email me and I'll give you the link.
