The facility layer displays icons that represent types of facilities. Polygons do not show up on the map, so make sure that you select an organisation unit level that has facilities.
A polygon is an enclosed area on a map representing a country, a district or a park.
Facility layers are represented by layer cards in the layer panel such as:
Along the top of the facilities card from left to right are:
A grab field to allow dragging and re-ordering layers with the mouse
The Facilities title
An eye symbol for toggling the visibility of the layer
An arrow symbol to collapse and expand the facilities card
In the middle of the facilities card is a legend indicating the group set representation.
Along the bottom of the facilities card from left to right are:
An edit (pencil) button to open the layer configuration dialog
A data table toggle button to show or hide the data table associated with the layer
A slider for modifying the layer transparency
A delete (trash can) icon to remove the layer from the current thematic map.
To create facility layer, choose Facilities on the Add layer selection. This opens the Facility layer configuration dialog.
In the GROUP SET tab:
In the ORGANISATION UNITS tab
select the organisation unit level(s) and/or group(s) from the selection fields on the right hand side.
Select the organisation units you want to include in the layer. It is possible to select either
One or more specific organisation units, or
A relative level in the organisation unit hierarchy, with respect to the user. By selecting a User organisation unit the map data will appear differently for users at different levels in the organisation unit hierarchy.

Facility layers have a data table option that can be toggled on or off from the facility layer card.
The data table displays the data forming the facility layer.
clicking on a title will sort the table based on that column; toggling between ascending and descending.
entering text or expressions into the filter fields below the titles will apply those filters to the data, and the display will adjust according to the filter. The filters are applied as follows:
filter by name containing the given text
filter by IDs containing the given text
filter by GIS display types containing the given text
Data table filters are temporary and are not saved with the map layers as part of the favourite.
The NAME filter field in the data table provides an effective way of searching for individual facilities.
