Default Data Filtering (New)

We have just added some brand new features in Ninja Tables. We would like to thank Michael Maliniak, who submitted a support ticket and asked us to add this feature.

The feature allows you to quickly and easily display just the rows you want to show by providing a simple filter text in the table shortcode. In this case, you should filter the data that has created earlier in the table.

For an example, Say you have a table with lots of movie data and you want to show the rows that only contain “Adventure”. This can be previously done in only one possible way- your user had to manually search for “Adventure” movies manually, given that you have allowed the Search/Filter option in your table. But the Default Data Filtering feature allows you as an admin to set default filtering options in a table containing a huge amount of data.
