I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Filter Web Parts are the part of the 'SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features' feature, which in turn activates "BizApps Site Templates" feature that contains web parts.
Howard BashSenior Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
It appears (how to tell) that this install is SharePoint Server Standard  as there is a "SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection Features".  If it is Standard am I out of look on these web parts?
Piotr StrycharzSoftware/web developerCommented:
I do not know what is actually included in the standard version of SharePoint. Check if you have C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\BizAppsSiteTemplates folder on the disk. If so -  you are free to install this feature. Please note that some webparts may not work with your SP version. Again - not sure as I do not have access to Standard Version.

I found some web parts in this folder:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\16\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\BizAppsSiteTemplates\dwp.  I assumpe the "16" in the path is because it's SP1016.

Here are the files I see:
AuthoredListFilter
BusinessDataFilter
DateFilter
FilterActions
OlapFilter
PageContentFilter
QueryStringFilter
SplistFilter
TextFilter
UserContextFilter

However,  I don't see a Filters category when I go to add a web part to  a page.
Piotr StrycharzSoftware/web developerCommented:
Did you run the command?:

Enable-SPFeature BizAppsSiteTemplates -URL http://YOUR-SITE-URL

Open in new window


I did check it for empty site (STS#1) and it works. In fact, I have some more webparts: AuthoredListFilter.webpart
BusinessDataActionsWebPart.dwp, BusinessDataAssociationWebPart.webpart, BusinessDataDetailsWebPart.webpart, BusinessDataFilter.dwp, BusinessDataItemBuilder.dwp, BusinessDataListWebPart.webpart, DateFilter.dwp, FilterActions.dwp, IndicatorWebPart.dwp, IViewWebPart.dwp, KpiListWebPart.dwp, OlapFilter.dwp, PageContextFilter.webpart, ProjectSummary.webpart, QueryStringFilter.webpart, SpListFilter.dwp, TextFilter.dwp, UserContextFilter.webpart, WSRPConsumerWebPart.dwp. But you have at least DateFilter, and it it enought to be visible in Filters section.

So, I ran that command and it failed for me.  Here is the error:
