Filtration syntax for SharePoint list (On-Premises)

SharePoint Org Chart allows to filter employees using flexible rules. You can specify filtration rule in the configuration wizard, see Org Chart filtration documentation for details.

You can create flexible rules based on User Profile properties or SharePoint list fields. On this page below you can find the list of available operators, functions and parameters you can use in your conditions.


Filtration expressions can be combined using operators. Each operator as a precedence priority. Here is the list of those expression’s priority

  • primary
  • unary
  • power
  • multiplicative
  • additive
  • relational
  • logical


These operators can do some logical comparison between other expressions:

or, ||
and, &&

true or false and true

The and operator has more prioroty than the or, thus in the example above, false and true is evaluated first.


=, ==, !=, <>
<, <=, >, >=

[Total] < 2000


+, -

[Total] + [Tax] > 3000


*, /, %

[Price] * [Quantity] == [Total]


& (bitwise and), | (bitwise or), ^(bitwise xor), << (left shift), >>(right shift)

[Field1] >> [Field2] > 5


!, not, -, ~ (bitwise not)

not true


(, )

2 * ( [Field1] + [Field2] )

A value is a terminal token representing a concrete element. This can be:

  • field
  • token
  • an integer
  • a floating point number
  • a date time
  • a boolean
  • a string
  • a function

Field or user profile property

Use internal name or display name of the field or of the user profile property in square brackets

[Job Title]


They are represented using numbers.


They are evaluated as Int32.

Floating point numbers

Use the dot to define the decimal part.


They are evaluated as Decimal.

Scientific notation

You can use the e to define power of ten (10^).


They are evaluated as Double

Dates and Times

Must be enclosed between sharps.

#2013/02/13# // for en-US culture

They are evaluated as DateTime. Forms Designer uses the current Culture to evaluate them.


Booleans can be either true or false.



Any character between single quotes ‘ are evaluated as String.


You can escape special characters using \\, \’, \n, \r, \t.


A function is made of a name followed by braces, containing optionally any value as arguments.
