Sharepoint List View - Calculated Columns

In some scenarios, while creating views we might need to filter based on complex queries. In List View, filters are available but they are not powerful. For example, if we want to group the condition based on And and or, that feature is not available.

One workaround for this problem is to add a calculated column in the list and the result of the calculation will say whether that row should be placed in the view or not.

Example query will be as follows:

IF(AND(OR([Col1]="Some Value", [Col2]="Some Value"), AND([Col3]="Some Value", [Col4]="Some Value")), "Show Row", "Dont Show")
