I am working on an admin interface that manages a dropdown filter located on an advanced search screen that is available for all users.
The admins can exclude options in the Manufacture filter. [See wireframes 1]
If an option is excluded from a filter on the admin manage filter screen, this option will not show in the filter dropdown. A checkbox will appear under that filter. By unchecking it, users can bring the excluded option back to the filter dropdown. [See wireframes 2]
The problem is how to inform admin users that if an option is unchecked, users will be able to view it by unchecking the checkbox?
Is there a better way to design the admin UI that will show the relationship between the options selected in the admin and the advanced search UI?
