I'm in need of a column filter web part in SharePoint 2013, more specifically said i need the web part to bring content of a list, library or calender based on a column in this list, library or calender. Is there any standard function that serves my issue?

Any help would be appreciated!

You can use an plethora of filter web parts that you can connect to your list web part to use as column filters. Try out the Text Filter web part first to play around with this concept and figure out what web part connections are all about.

To get to filter web parts

  • Edit Page

  • Add a Web Part

  • Filters Category

  • Choose Text Filter

Consult this link for configuring the connections.

  • And as usual, Microsoft has changed where the link goes to - making this answer pretty useless.
