I just happened to check out the enhanced gradebook filters after a few months.  Early on there were several comments on what should be done to improve the way they work and I am glad that Instructure made vasts improvements with the enhanced filters.  It has a lot of features and ease of use.  

Thank you for making it much better than what it started out as.
