SmartFilters for SharePoint Online is a new Office 365 feature. First Release tenants will start seeing this feature beginning today and rolling out over the coming weeks, followed by worldwide rollout expected by the end of January, 2017.
How does this affect me?
SmartFilter is an easier and faster way to find items within a list or library. This feature will improve column filtering workflows within lists and document libraries by allowing users to easily set multiple filters at once. To access this feature, a user can select the filter icon on the top right of a list or library and open the Smartfilter panel.
