I have a client/server system. A database table on the server can contain a million records. I need to present various filter criteria to the user. One filter needs to be a server-side filter, such as a date range, so that the server only sends a subset of the records to the client, say 1,000. Another filter, also a date range, will filter those 1,000 records only on the client. So, say the user chooses date range 1 to filter the 1,000 records into 500, then chooses date range 2 to filter the 1,000 records into 300. The client-side filter (500 or 300 records) does not require any interaction with the server.
How would you suggest naming the server-side filter vs. the client-side filter so that a novice user understands this?
All I can think of is using something like "Quicker Download", but I don't know if they would understand. Of course, we will have tool tips to add more information, but I'm hoping for very good UI labels. I do not have any icons for this and I really don't want any.
I am planning to use a filter panel similar to reed.co.uk, so I can have headings.
