So Hot Right Now

Now that football season is in full swing we’ve put together a list of tricks to help you continue to dominate this season.

Filter Your Clips

Quick filtering

  1. Hang your mouse over a column header and click Analyze. Alt text
  2. Choose the value you wish to have appear in the filter. Alt text
  3. Click the X in the top-right corner when you’re finished to apply the filter.

Main Filtering

  1. Click Filter Clips in the orange bar above the clips list. Alt text
  2. In the first box, select a data column (such as ODK) to filter. Once you have selected the data column, other filter options will appear. Alt text
  3. The second box, the condition box, is where you will select a filter type to apply to your clips by choosing one from the drop-down box. The filter types in Hudl include:
    • In List – Generates a list of available filter values to choose from in the Value drop-down box. This is the easiest filter type to use. Only the selected values selected will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to all offensive plays in the ODK column, click the O option.
    • Equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that equals the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to all offensive plays in the ODK column, you would type O in the Value box.
    • Not equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is not equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter out all offensive plays in the ODK column (leaving just defensive and kick plays), you would type O in the Value box.
    • Greater than/equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is greater than or equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance greater than or equal to 10 yards, you would type 10 in the Value box.
    • Less than/equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is less than or equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance less than or equal to 5 yards, you would type 5 in the Value box.
    • Between – The Value input becomes two text boxes. Only clips with a data value that is between the two values you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance between 3 and 6 yards, you would type 3 and 6 in the Value boxes.
  4. For this example, choose In List from the Choose a Condition box.
  5. Click in the Value input box to see a list of available values. Alt text
  6. Click each value you would like to include in your filter then click the X in the top-right corner to apply the filter.

Sorting

Sorting can be done by clicking the column header.

  • Click once to sort numerically or alphabetically.
  • Click twice to reverse the order
  • Click a third time to sort by frequency

Sorting by frequency allows you to sort by how many times a value appears in the clips list. For example, pull an opponent’s most common formation or play when you sort by frequency.

A second way to sort by frequency:

  1. Hang your mouse over the column you wish to sort and click Analyze. Alt text
  2. Click the bar graph to sort the values by frequency. Alt text
  3. The values will then be organized by their frequency, show you relative differences, and sort the list below—all with one click.

Edit Applied Filters

The black filter bar appears above the clips list once you click Filter Clips, and will show the current filters applied to the clips list. You can add, remove, or edit filters from this bar.

  1. To add another filter, click the green plus sign on the left side of the black filter bar and follow steps 2-7 in the main filtering section to add a new filter. Alt text
  2. To remove an applied filter, click the red minus sign next to any of the current filters.
  3. To edit a specific filter, click on the column name, condition box, or data values in the filter’s row. A pop-up will reappear for you to choose new information for the filter.
  4. Click Clear Filters to remove all filters and return to the unfiltered clips list. Alt text

Save and Load Filters

In Hudl, you can save and load various filters so you can easily switch between them. This gives you a quick way to alter the clips that are shown in the clips list.

  2. Click the Save/Load Filter at the right-side of the black filter bar. Alt text
  3. To save a filter for later use, enter a name in the Save as box, and click Save. Alt text
