Users can filter their events in the My Events area by selecting the 'Filter' option, which can be found at the top left of your event index.
Selecting this option will present you with the options to filter your events by state - Live, Upcoming or Completed. Filtering using these option will present you with events that you have access to that match the state you have selected.
Full Administrators will see an additional filter present in this area - All Administrable Events. This filter allows you to view events that you have been assigned to as a user, as opposed to merely having access to the event itself.
When you choose to filter your events, you can still sort them by selecting the column heading you wish to sort by.
