I'm struggling to figure out a decent way of laying out a filtering system in an otherwise simple HTML form.
For context, the form is used to submit issues, like those you see on an ISP or web host's server status page listing all the current issues. The filter is to determine a subset of users that are affected by the issue. There are several different kinds of filters and there can be anywhere from one to a couple dozen items in each filter.
So when filling out the form, the system admin can either use the default setting which is all users, or select one or more filter items from one or more filter lists.
I know the description is fairly vague, and I don't have any concepts to provide clarification, but any suggestions would be much appreciated.
