In Design Mode, you can change certain aspects and functions of a page. Using Design Mode you can add a Filter button on Revenue History that will allow you to collapse the filters to get them out of the way and make more room to view the data list. However, adding this functionality inadvertently causes the data list to disappear when the filters are collapsed.
If you choose to set the AutoDisplayFilters field value to False, on page load the system will filter the DataList based on the Default Filter defined in the Revenue > reporting filter functional area. Clicking the 'Filters' button will load additional available filters in order to display other gifts that would not be displayed by the Default Filter.
