CMS DAT Filter Application
In the CMS Portal, a DAT Filter is applied to a CMS Page or a CMS Widget based on the selected entity.  The DAT Filter verifies whether the currently selected household, student, inquiry, etc. matches DAT Filter conditions; this can be done both directly or indirectly.  

Example: If a user logs in to the Parent Portal, the DAT Filter indirectly reads the household information associated with the currently logged in user; and if the household matches the household entity DAT Filter conditions, then the logged in user can access the CMS Page or a CMS Widget that the DAT Filter is applied to.  

Example:
If a user switches between students in the Parent Portal, the DAT Filter directly reads the student information based on the selected student record; and if the student record matches the student entity DAT Filter conditions, then the logged in user can access the CMS Page or a CMS Widget that the DAT Filter is applied to.

Example: If we apply a student entity DAT Filter with a condition of grades 9-12 (high school students) to a CMS Widget - Students with Households Directory, the DAT Filter will NOT restrict what students show up in the directory.  Instead, it will display the directory only if the students that fit the DAT Filter conditions are selected.
